Have you made plans for a backup way to heating and cooking off-grid?
Many people around the country are downsizing, moving into tiny homes, travel trailers, and school bus conversions. Propane stove are usually the go-to cooking and heating systems. This AirStream travel trailer has those appliances as well, but we wanted the ability to cook when and if propane was not available, and who doesn’t love the smell of wood stove burning on a cold snowy winter night.
When you install a small stove in a small space, there are a lot of safety concerns you need to consider.
- Distance to flammable items

When planning your stove location take into consideration all these concerns and more for your own situation.
