There's a wealth of information in this thread, but too bad the OP didn't stay long enough to take advantage of it. His last activity was 07-14-2011. Sounds like he asked the question, and then decided that winter in Winnipeg was not for him.

This storm would be interesting in a trailer. We are executing 2' of snow and there could be much more. 50mph winds. If we lose power that will be a PITA. I will have to go get some extra gas tomorrow. What would you do in a trailer without electricity? You would've dependent on propane, or some other fuel for heat. Today I moved three days worth of firewood to the front door of the house and tarped it up.

Having lived in Wpg. for some years and now in Calgary for a long time , got to say there is a difference in the winters ...... a " cold winter " in Calgary is never as bad as a " cold winter in Wpg . Best place to park a trailer in Wpg for winter living is a heated garage ... really ...

We could not have done it in the Scamp, but we survived in a sticky in North Dakota, skirted and insulated. Ours was a brief adventure in the oil patch compared to some.

Jason,
That looks nice but there is the warning not to be used in homes or campers. Other than that that, I was impressed.

That pellet stove puts out 40,000 BTU's! I think it would melt my foam insulation on the other side of my camper and kill me with the out gassing. I am planning on using fiberglass insulation near my stove and would love to have a pellet option, but this Clary stove is too hot and does not have enough control for heating a small space. The self feeding is very nice though.

Dear Night,

If you decide to install that pellet stove and use it, sleep with an apple in your mouth.

Dear Darwin, the image is very effective, maybe belly up and all four in the air also but I think you meant to address Dear Kirk.

Dear jack

I see it can be used in big tents, though...

If you where to leave a windoow open I think the small Rocky Mountain Elk stove would work just fine even though they don't recommend it.
Night Sailor.... You can damp them down so they don't put out to much heat.
On there home page it now says this.
New!
Damper control for more comfort on warm days
Deeper ash drawer means more heating/less cleaning
