    Yeah it does the job. Can only fit small kindeling or coal in it so it requires constant attention

    What's the name brand of that tiny stove and does it radiates enough heat to keep the van warm?

    It’s made by a guy locally who sells em on ebay for only £50. And oh fuck yea, it goes from being 1 or 2 degree C up to 28-35C in like 45minutes. I end up sweating my ass off and having to go outside at times

    I haven't posted on here for quite a while, but I saw this and just wanted to say that I think it's an awesome conversion.

    I love this conversion! And like everyone else I am also interested in the stove! When I find a good spot I can for 14 days and the stove would be a remarkable addition to my own operation.
