RV wood stoves

Post by oldtrucker »

I'm trying to put in a tiny wood stove in a camper and I'm really trying to avoid cutting a hole in the roof.
Trying to find a 45 deg. elbow for 3 3/8 inch pipe, then I can run it out a hole cut thru a cookie sheet where the window was.
Anyone know where I can get a elbow piece for this?

Spitball here. maybe a muffler shop could bend you one.

That was going to be my suggestion as well, plus try the truck wreckers at Hwy 97 & Sexsmith.

Yep...that may be the only answer.
The stove is cheap. Putting it in isn't.

Ya...$60 at a muffler shop they supply the elbow and can bend it to fit. I considered it a few days back but my ideas aren't always that smart so...
I just thought I'd put it out there in case someone had a better idea.

I think your idea of putting a wood burning stove in an RV will become one of those that you will have on your list of; "NOT a good idea".
I hope that you have a BIG fire extinguisher and two egress points.

You are probably right. Maybe it's the wood panel interior that completely covers the inside that's freaking me out. And no, just 1 door. Hey, maybe you guys will read a news headline..." Very stupid kelowna man gives himself a cremation..."

Doesn't sound like the safest place.

Go ask Tony at Jerry's muffler... I know they are always doing stuff to their campers

Better plan on putting in a fresh air make-up vent as well. Otherwise you will burn up all the O2 in a camper very fast.

Are you building a mobile MAID facility, OT? If so, apply for govt funding. [icon_lol2.gif]
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Ideas you already are aware of.
https://vanclan.co/van-wood-stove/

I know a few people that have wood burners in their converted buses and vans,

When done right. Near to zero issues when due diligence is the norm.

Hope you have a plan to bring in fresh air to replace the air used in combustion....
Wood burning stove in RV is a 100% no-no. Definitely against law. Not WETT certified.
Anybody who helps you may be considered liable for any sort of wrongful death situation.
(Which is a real possibility)
Prolly not what you were looking for in a response...but meh?
Remember, you are unique......Just like everybody else...

Of course it or anything out of the box that doesn't put money into the chain like buying propane isnt going to be legal. Of course anything wood burning is frowned upon by
govt/ law. What I speak of hints of self reliance. A trait despised by all levels of govt.
