Probably the primary factor that I look at when shopping for woodstoves for RVs is size. I’m not looking at BTU or space, I’m looking at the actual size of the woodstove.

If you have an boat, RV or travel trailer, 5th wheel or tiny home, you know that space is at a premium, and finding a place that you can install a woodstove takes a lot of consideration.

Location for a Woodstove Matters

There are two places that you can run a stovepipe through; the roof, or a window.

Now in my trailer, I have a large slide in the kitchen/livingroom area. Ideally, I would like to be able to put one of those woodstoves for RVs in the slide, which is the central location in the 5th wheel. However, I would have to be able to remove the chimney should I ever need to move the trailer and be able to close the slide.

You see that little bitty woodstove to the left?  Those were designed for boats, and are not being used in RVs. I really like the fact that that style has the window where you can watch the flames of the fire. That would be so nice to have.

Will a Woodstove Really Keep You Warm?

Putting the chimney through the window would probably be the best in that case, however…I saw a video on Youtube the other day on installing a woodstove in an RV. They installed it in the entertainment area immediately in front of the entrance, and on the wall between the upstairs and the downstairs.
I have one of those entertainment centers that I currently use for a pantry. So, if I use that for my choice of woodstoves for RVs, I will have to see where I can store my canned goods. Actually, not a problem, I’ll just have to do some creative rearranging, perhaps get rid of something, and then put in some kind of pantry…

While I like that little woodstove to the right, I think I would like one that have enough top surface that can be used for cooking if need be.

Tiny Woodstoves for RVs


There are a couple of companies that manufacture woodstoves built specifically for RVs. Actually the first time I saw these tiny woodstoves was on an a photo of a woodstove installed on a boat.

They were originally designed for boats. I thought they were brilliant and would work perfectly for an RV. Well, now you can find them advertised for travel trailers and tiny houses, as they really are the perfect tiny woodstoves for RVs.
