Wood stove in a mobile home
started out with an exterior wood
furnace because we had been told by
reputable sources that you can't put a wood stove in a mobile
home. It turns out that's just not true. Instead, there are
a series of guidelines to follow when installing a wood stove in a
trailer, and you also need to choose a wood stove specially tested to
mobile home safe.
addition, you should choose a wood stove that has been approved for use
in a mobile home. In general, these stoves are on the small to
medium side and have a top-exiting flue collar and a heat shield on the
back. These characteristics combine to make the clearance around
all sides of the stove less, which in turn lets them fit into a mobile
home. In fact, from browsing the internet, it sounds like the
small size of mobile homes is really the biggest danger feature, so
your goal should be to find a spot for your wood stove where you can
provide plenty of air space around it.
