    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 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.

    Right on man. I got the room for rent in Hayward so I’ll be in the east bay for a while. Hope we’re able to work together!
