New heating option

Someone sent me this link.

Sardine Stove

- 86 % Efficient !

- Cast iron construction

- For Wood & Hardwood Charcoal.

(cut your wood rounds to 6" long and then split down to approx. 3".)
It's probably not practical for a van but you have to admit it is cute.

Open the pod bay doors Hal.

Once I exit Hal, this is what I do.

The Oregon guys with house trucks use the big cast iron boys. That's a whole different ball game, though.

Re: New heating option

my wife and i are actually toying with the idea of a small trailer by either ATC or CampLite and having the "Little Cod" put in it for heating/cooking. Sort of a tent/camp kitchen on wheels idea...maybe for the 2012 camp season.

most of our camping trips rarely get above ~50ish in the mornings and ~70 during the days so a (Very) small wood stove like this might work out well and not heat/cook us out of a trailer. I have a friend who has one on a small sailboat and they work well in confined spaces.

I had something similar in 1975. It was made out of a 5 gallon metal drum with a door and a stack cut into it.
The unit was installed in my 1959 quad door VW cargo van that I used for extended camping. Kept the van nice and warm.
