Right now I wish I had a woodstove for cold survival, as I’m sitting in my RV with a small electric heater tower going, bundled up to the ears in multiple layers of clothes, and pressing my nose into my cat’s fur to try and stay warm. Yep, this is the 100-year Texas Freeze Apocalypse of early 2021, and I’m surviving.

I’m also determined that somehow, someway, before another winter comes, I’m going to figure out how to get a woodstove in my RV.

Why I Recommend a Woodstove

Well, a perfect example in the here and now:  A woodstove for cold survival does NOT depend on electricity.

So if the power goes out and those remote-controlled radiant heaters don’t work, you can still heat your home, tiny home, RV, cabin, or even tent…yes tent.

Plus, once you get it installed, if you live near the woods, you can pick up fuel to feed the hungry beast for a little bit of nothing. In a lot of places, there’s enough small deadfall limbs and branches that you can simply pick it up and drag it home for the fire.

Will a Woodstove Really Keep You Warm?

Yes. It may not be enough to heat a two-story house, or keep the pipes from freezing, but a woodstove for cold survival, will keep you alive. Well, you do need to make sure you have a little bit of ventilation so that you avoid the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning. But there are CO detectors that will sound an alarm if carbon monoxide is detected, and then if you leave just a small opening to the outside so a bit of fresh air can enter, you can avoid any danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.

My Experience with Woodstoves for Cold Survival

There have been numerous times in my life where I’ve had to rely on wood heat to keep me not just alive, but warm and semi-comfy. Probably one of the first times, was in Michigan when I rented a small cottage. The place wasn’t insulated, it had a gaping hole underneath it where the owner were going to put in a basement. However, it was wide open to the snow, wind and skunks…but that’s another story for another time.

I worked at home that year, and can remember sitting at my desk, across the room from the wood furnace, and there was ice on the paneling six inches from my left arm. It was cold!

But, I survived, and learned a lot. One thing I learned was that having a small fan to circulate the warm air really helped.

I'm in the process of starting to research and think about installing a tiny woodstove in my 5th-wheel trailer. I love living in an RV, but even in Texas winters can get awfully cold. Ask anyone who lived through Snovid21 in February 2021, which is happening as I type this.

I swear, before next winter, I will have another way to heat my small space.
