Tiny House

Codylived in his Tiny House for almost 8 years, and he upgraded his wood stove to the Dwarf 4kw for a longer burn time during central Oregon winters.


Tiny House

Lucas installed a Tiny Wood Stove in his Tiny House, which he calls home if he’s not traveling the country in his van.

What size stove do I need?
For most small to medium sized RVs (< 26’) our Dwarf 3kw is a good option. That said there are many variables to consider when sizing a stove including usage, climate and space efficiency. Larger RVs may benefit from the Dwarf 4kw and large RVs traveling in very cold climates might even want the Dwarf 5kw. [/tws_faq] [tws_faq heading='What parts do I need'] Since every space is different installation parts do not come with the stoves. We have base kits for different spaces then depending on your setup, you’ll need one or more additional pieces of chimney pipe. Chimney parts can be overwhelming so we made our Chimney Selector which will help you calculate exactly what you need for a strightforward installation. If you have a more involved installation or you just prefer human help, feel free to contact us.
How much will it all cost?
Like many projects, there is a vast range for the total cost. While price is an important factor, total value is what we recommend you focus on. While you can find a cheaper wood stove elsewhere, it’s wise to invest in the best solution upfront for a wood stove that will last a lifetime, will burn efficiently, and comes with support from a team of folks who live small just like you. A typical roof exit installation in an RV will run you around $1500 for the stove, chimney pipe, and all installation parts. Got a vision for your installation and want to know how much it will cost? Try our Chimney Selector or contact us.
How long will it burn?
Burn time depends on fuel quality, fuel quantity, and air settings. In general, you can expect 3KW 3-5hrs, 4KW 4-6hrs & 5KW 6-8hrs. We’ve gotten the best results with burn time using compressed logs. For more info check out our article on How to Make your Wood Stove Burn Longer.
How big of a space do I need to install my stove?
Most folks installing a wood stove in an RV are going to be limited on space. Therefor, building a wall mounted heat shield tends to make the most sense. This will allow you to reduce clearance requirements for the stove and single wall pipe down to only 6” from any part of the stove or pipe to nearby combustible materials protected by the heat shield. Take a look at our article on different types of heat shields and how they impact clearance requirements.
Can I install the stove in a slide out?
It’s possible but presents a lot of challenges. If you are able to install in the main body of the RV where the slide outs will not interfere with the chimney pipe exiting the roof, that’s going to be significantly easier. If you absolutely have to install in a slide out, you’ll need your flue to exit the wall and you’ll want to check to ensure the additional weight of the stove in your slide out is ok by the manufacturers requirements. Wall exits on vehicles can be done but are not ideal due to how far off the side of your rig the pipe and mounting brackets will extend (about 9”).
You want me to put a hole in my roof?
Many folks are nervous about cutting a hole through their roof. Fortunately, our silicone pipe boot has a flexible base and can seal curved, sloped, and bumpy roofs with no problem. Generally speaking, roof exits function the best for the stove (you get the best draft) and are the most economical (cost the least) to install. Wall exits can be done in vehicles but do present additional challenges. Check out our installation instructions to see what steps you’ll take to install your pipe through your roof. Still feeling unsure? Contact us and we are happy to help.
Can I do a wall exit/window exit to reduce height above my roof?
Regardless of where your chimney pipe your RV, all flue systems should follow the 3-2-10 rule for the best draft and safety. The chimney opening needs to be 3′ above the roof penetration/edge of the roof, or 2′ above any part of the structure within 10′ whichever is higher. Most folks in RVs will use a removable section of chimney that they stow when traveling to reduce the height. Check out Nick’s Instagram post to see how stowing/setting up the chimney works.
Why should I do business with you?
We’re tiny living people like you, working to live intentionally and to support others doing the same. We care about your journey, and can relate to the challenges you’re running into along the way.
We carry wood stoves and solid fuel rated flue parts that are specifically designed for small stoves.

If you need something we don’t carry, we’ll tell you where to find it. And if you need help with an unusual or creative design, we’re here to help with that, too
