Merry Crimblewinter, the 2nd series of Vansformation starts today!
All rested up after the break, the show’s theme for the next year is more: more solo episodes, more interviews, more of the time. Campervan builders self-builders, van converters and anyone who dreams of a land ship of your own making, welcome in.
Almost a year after this podcast launched the podcast kicks off with one of two episodes on one of the dark arts of van conversion: wood burning stoves. Also known as woodstoves or multifuel heaters, they are beloved by some van self-builders and considered a sign of very poor judgement by others. But, what are the real considerations behind whether they are a good idea for your vehicle conversion or not?
5 very good reasons not to put a woodburning stove in your van.
