Welcome to Vansformation Episode 20!

Following up from VF 19, which explored 5 reasons NOT to put a woodburning stove into your vehicle conversion, this episode brings 5 reasons you should consider it.

This episode features:

  • Safe installation and use of a solid fuel heater in a van conversion
  • What woodburner size is right to keep you toasty warm in a campervan
  • Considerations for the design of your space around the woodburner
  • Why I unabashedly love it and personally feel it can be a safe choice if approached with some precautions

So what are the 5 reasons?
1. Economical campervan heating
2. Fully renewable fuel sources, in some cases reducing landfill
3. Hedonistic, unashamed fun
4. Cooking alternative if LPG runs out
5. Support of innovative, local businesses
