I bet this unit is going to get real hot around your plywood also since it will be sitting inside a cubical... Even with the table top removed...

This small wood stove only puts out about 15,000 BTU per hour. Not all that much. It order to get combustion of wood is around 450 degrees. There is no plywood on my slides. All there is wallpaper over metal as shown in pic #3 and the top of the table will be removed. The only plywood wood there is the cabinet and that will be protected by the stainless steel shield. So no worries for me. You do not run a wood stove at full blast. You adjust you air flow to suit the temp you want and with this stove it has a 2nd combustion chamber to burn the some smoke for longer burn times and less smoke out your stove pipe. You should not get any smoke out your stove pipe. If you do you dont have the proper settings on your wood stove. I will also have a thermal electric fan I will put on the top of the stove to circulate the heat. There are alot of different types of thermal electric fans for a wood stove. Here is just one example:

Here is a link about the fan:

We had a wood stove put in a cabin we owned once and the install guys put a product called 'wonder board' against the walls, then a nice metal frame with tiles in it spaced maybe 2 inch's away from the wonder board.

I think the board was kind of concrete looking, about 1/4 to 3/8" thick. Good luck.

I am sure that you have a familiarity or even experience with wood stoves so please do not be offended by my comments.

I have heated my home with an Appalachian 36BW woodstove for the last 25 years and it is designed for a 3000 sq ft home. The video you have posted shows a roaring fire in that little wood stove. That is the type of fire you can safely make in a masonry fireplace with a brick flue. Otherwise, you can easily overheat the metal flue of a wood stove with a fire like that. My experience with my wood stove is creating a much smaller fire on the inside floor to the rear. It may have a few flames but is mostly a glow. It very efficiently burns all of the wood to a fine ash at a slow rate. This allow the maximum heat transfer from the combustion box to the heated air box then the fan blows that hot air into the room. You might also look at ducting outside air to the combustion box so as to not use inside air. This will also allow better drafting of the smoke up the flue pipe. Your project is very doable it is just that the obvious additional measure of safety is needed. Also, I used triple wall stainless steel flue pipe in my home. It is well worth the money for peace of mind. You probably won't have any issues with this woodstove but your greatest care in design will be the flue going through two 90 degree transitions.

Good luck and post pics of your finished product with reviews of its operation. You definitely have my attention on this project.

No worries bud lol I had planed to use 1/4 or 3/8 fire board then rap the thin stainless sheet metal around the fire board for extra protection. I know it's kinda overkill for such a small wood stove. Now like you said I may go with triple wall stove like you said instead of double wall stove pipe.

Thanks Bud

I agree with jeffdee. I had a flue fire, long story, and the triple wall stainless saved us. Not going to add much cost. Send completed pics.

Thumbs up Hobbit Wood Stove Installation Jayco 341 RLQS

================================================== ==========
Note!!:
This post is not a DIY instruction on how install a wood stove in your rig. This is just purely for entertainment purposes only!. This is not for all RV'ers. I live In my RV.

================================================== ==========

I have just installed my wood stove area in my Jayco Eagle 341 RLQS 5th Wheel.
Here is what I used....

1. Installed a 50 year old 1" thick of Italian Marble for the floor area.
2. Installed 1/2" Durarock for all three walls on the slide.
3. Covered the Durarock fireboard with Stainless Steel Sheets.
4. Used 1"X1" board for the walls for air ventilation between wall and the floor for the Durarock Fireboard.
5. I have bought double wall flue pipe. I will be going out the back of the stove then up outside of my 5th Wheel. ( Video Coming Soon! )

Some people may say this is not safe for and RV. Now the people that say that may have not done the extensive research like I have to come to the conclusion that I can may it safe for me. This is not for everyone. I have 3 fire extinguishers and 2 carbon monoxide devices. I have been told from other people that it is quite overkill the way I did this. It maybe true but I wanted piece of mind to make sure it is safe for me. Sure it cost a little more but how much money would to spend to make it safe for you?

I feel will all the research I have done it will be safe for my 5th wheel. My Hobbit Wood Stove will be here sometime next week. I should have it completed less than 2 hours after
I have received the wood stove next week.

The video will be up soon.
