Smile Heater - solid fuel w/chimney pipe

Has anyone installed a small wood burning stove or Dickinson Marine Newport Solid Fuel heater in their scamp? I've seen super tiny wood burning wall mount heaters w/chimney pipe vented through the roof of tiny houses. Any ideas, suggestions, experiences out there fellow Fiberglass RV'rs? Thank you. :-) I've got an '84 13' Scamp and winter camp; prefer to avoid propane or generator.

There have been many previous threads on this topic, mostly regarding the drawbacks, but yes, there have been a few who have installed woodstoves in their molded trailers. Here's one in a Casita (not mine).

Try a "Site Search/Google" (bottom of the search menu in the task bar under your log-in information) to find those old conversations.

I've seen numerous youtube posts of Dickinson stoves and tiny wood stoves installed in RVs and boats. Some include installation details.

Dickinson are good but pricey. Try Cubic Wood Stoves. The have the Cub and one larger model. Good prices.

I urge you to search and read previous posts on wood stoves before launching into this project.

If you want to go that route you might want to look at the Cubicmini heater made in Quebec. Far superior to the other makes. There are numerous boats on Saltpring Island now using them for heating and a friend of mine has one in his Dodge camper.

Where did you enter the search term? It goes in the bottom Google Site Search box.
I get 1,220 results in .64 seconds.

I have seen a few of the older style VW's especially not the westy style but even them where they pushed the chimney out the side and up so as not to hurt the FG roof lift they use on Westies. so much cheaper than propany here as they want 80cents a litre now and sometimes more.
