Thread: Posh stove...... any good?

  1. #1

    Posh stove...... any good?

    I fancy this ..... http://www.thebushcraftstore.co.uk/f...er-10404-p.asp
    I know it's a bit OTT but for a long camp with truck and tents I thought it seemed a good option. I also thought it would be a good adition to my workshop. Any thoughts lads and lasses?

    I've had use of one of these, good piece of kit, used one on a canoe trip, seen them on the camp sites, I found that to get a good draw you need to keep the door ajar at first until it gets going, good long chimney to get that smoke up and away, not to heavy to carry, fire contained as well, and with the right fittings can be used in tent. If you where installing one in your shed/garage make sure you have enough air circulation. I would imagine others on here have them to and will give you some feed back.
    Cheers

    I thought it could fill a few niches..... posh camping. Workshop. and emmmmm...... when I build my cabin in alaska and live there for 30 years ....
    I have this idea of retro fitting a caravan to be more.... rustic? and a wee wood stove would be a great addition.

    Cheers for replies mannies.

    These stoves do look a good piece of kit but how long will they last considering the weight of them. They are about 11kg all in and do look a little 'thinly' made but reviews look pretty good, including this one below.

    as good as it looks, and I love the little water heater, which has given me ideas for my own, I'd say look for something cheaper and sturdier if its to be left in situ, ie a caravan, as these are really made light for transport reasons, you see plenty of stoves made from old gas bottles on the internet, which in a static position would give you in my opinion a longer usage time, I picked this up from e bay for around 40, the roof flange was home made from leather, and easy to light, once going it kicks out heat at around 500 degrees F, looking forward to our glamping trip next month

    yeah, I have a chimnea made with a big gas bottle and some 4" x 9mm wall thickness pipe "aquired" from work and its a blinder....
    I'm just thinking of the multipurpose...ness of having a lightweight stove thats sturdy enough to be used long term too.

    reason i thought the frontier stove would be good for my caravan is purely because of its weight... if i went any heavier id be in a position when id have to be very careful when i placed it i.e. over axles etc, and would have to be a permanent fixture.. with this little guy i can simply pack it away and make some kind of removable cover for the chimney on the roof.. and its so light i can choose where it goes.. that was my thinking anyway... i could be very wrong of course!

    Yes, it's weight is a major factor in my reasons for being interested in the stove. Light enough to be picked up, folded away and taken away, but sturdy enough and big enough to live somewhere semi permanent and it looks good too. I just hope it is sturdy enough to last a while.
