Why You Should Have a Kimberly Wood Stove in Your Motorhome

Kimberly wood stoves are a great solution for those cold, harsh winters.

Anyone who lives in their motorhome during the winter (and there are more people out there who do this than you might think), knows the importance of staying warm.

Tim Johnson of the website, Living in a Van Down by the River, solved this problem by installing a Kimberly Woodstove…inside his RV!

Naysays may warn that using a wood burning stove inside an RV is dangerous, but Johnson believes that as long as proper precautions are taken, a woods stove can keep you toasty and warm, without sacrificing safety.

Johnson is a resident of Alaska, and lives in a 1989 Toyota Odyssey 4×4.  Pictured below is his Kimberly wood stove and chimney.

Kimberly wood stoves typically go for $4,500 for the stove, a class A chimney pipe, shipping costs, and a floor pad. Johnson estimates that he saves up to $1,500 in propane costs each winter by only burning wood.

If you live in an area with cold winters, in your motorhome why not try a Kimberly wood stove. Only a single cord of wood will typically last throughout the entire winter, which will save you a ton of money in the end. Better yet, the Kimberly wood stove only needs one inch of clearance space, when compared to other wood stoves, which need several inches for safety reasons.
