I am looking for a gravity furnace (old style furnace)

Looking for something with no fan but vents to the outside. I have heard of a furnace called Wagon Master, built in the 1960's and/or 70's. I am led to believe that they built a model that might be small enough to be able to mount into a small burro. Does anyone know anything about these? Thanks

My 1976 Surf-Side has the original furnace which requires no electricity. It is a Hydro Flame brand and it works great. This type of furnace was outlawed in the 70's because the surface gets hot and people were getting burned.The only way to get one would be a used one at a used parts outlet , or someone who is replacing one . I tried to find one a couple of years ago for the truck camper I had at the time and had no luck.

I've renovated several of these campers over the years, and that my friend is as rare as hens teeth.. I hope you good luck in finding one and if by chance two shows up here for sale I would like to buy the extra one.

Fred,
I have a hydroflame i took out of a defunct tent trailer. It has no fan and requires no electricity. The bad news is that it is in Calgary, Alberta. It appears to work well, and is complete. It isn't tied to a thermostat, but is regulated only by rotating the fuel supply valve.
It's yours if you want it!

Randy, Sorry no one number. It has numbers of salvage yards all over the U S. Im not getting a notice more than likely because im using an Ipad. Im guessing your anti virus software does not like what it sees.

Gravity Furnaces

Fred, I sent you a couple private messages today concerning gravity furnaces, but they don't show up in my Sent folder. Let me know if you get them or not.

Older tent trailers are great as donors of appliances. The trailers rot out but the appliances live on. They are the right size for many of the smaller fiberglass trailers. On my Ventura I needed a fridge and 2 burner stove. Got them from a guy for $40 when he was scrapping a rotten tent trailer. They worked just like new! Craigslist is your friend for people just wanting to get rid of tent trailers and truck campers for next to nothing. Take what you need and sell the the frame for a utility trailer or make the guy a cheap offer to strip the good stuff first.
