Question Propane furnace and stove top

Im in the Middle of restoring my 72 Boler 1300 and it has no furnace in it and the burner dials dont turn.but stove is there.(so maybe just valves?)BUt looking for a propane furnace moslty.. if someone knows of a website or business that sells ones that will fit, or has a used one id greatly buy it off your hands. It has to be a shallow furnace tho no more then eight inchs it looks like.or unless it goes up and over the wheel well..not sure just a hole where it was..Thanks.. Im located in Saskatchewan and dont mind driving.
Please send me a message or help a fellow Bolerer with some info.

Not sure if this helps but this the furnace thats in my Scamp. . You should be able to purchase through most RV supply stores. Mine is placed high enough that the back part of it extends over the wheel well.

Yes it has a built in fan that blows out to the front. Its an auto light so all you need to do is make sure the propane tank is open and turn on the wall thermostat to light it.

FYI
I did some temperature measurements on mine (Scamp with Surban Furnace). At no place around the front could I find any place hot enough to ignite paper or cloth. I found one spot that if you held your hand on it long enough you could be a burn about like a sunburn. Skin usually burns at 145F.

Also this furnace has a separate combustion chamber that is exhausted outside. If look at any trailer, any brand and find two ports about 3" in diameter that's the furnace. One is air intake and other is the exhaust. I didn't do a thermal test at the exhaust.

working propane furnace pulled out of my 71 boler

hi

so i have a working propane furnace that I jut pulled out of my 71 boler 1300. It is not the original furnace, but is an 1997 Atwood Hydroflame II 8912
(12,000 btu), a good furnace and the company is still selling them and offering parts and service.

I know it fit and worked in my trailer. Even if you are not interested in the furnace I could send you a couple photos to get an idea how it was installed and where. One of these photos show where it was located in the rear dinette , you can see the brown cover, it vented directly outside.

anyway I am in redoing my 71, and I have some other parts that I do not need, maybe you have parts to trade or just need some misc piece of hardware I wont use or bother selling. I think we are in the same neck of the woods
