Heater advice
 
Hello friends, I need a word of advice from you. I'm in the process of building our first bus and after several considerations, I think that a wood stove is the best option for us. I was almost ready to order the four dogs stove, for the price and quality, when this morning I found in CL. a Pleasant Hearth almost new for $250.
The pleasant weights 200 vs 60 of the four dogs, but have a glass door and a supposedly a high efficiency.
What would you recommend? The lighter one, that I can remove easily during the nonwinter season or the heaviest one with the view?

How big of a bus? Insulated?

Fill in your location/bus profile and wood stove people will chime-in.

Exactly Rusty..too many unknowns so far.

Small stove that you will take out..no way.

Bigger stove with a window in the door.. they get dirty so may as well not have one. You want more steel in a stove, firebrick, airtight and with a catalytic converter. Those type stoves you do not remove because it is summer.
Layout is important too so tell us what you have for a bus.
