Just looking for any tips or advice for installing a log burner into a static caravan.
I have stuck a pot bellied stove i our shoot caravan but it is a complete botch job but does seem to work very well and not burned caravan down, yet....
Was thinking of lining surrounding area and cieling with fire retardant plaster board and then somehow leaving an air gap and using some proper fire board on top.
1 corner is potentially near/throu the wall from the gas combi boiler for hot water, thought i could stick some insulation on wall below fire retardant plaster board just to be safe.
Wot do u need in the way off flue pipe/set up?
I realise need a selkirk/twin wall flue for last 2-300mm below caravan roof, how far above the roof do u need to go and if in an overgrown/bushy type area would u be better putting a spinner? on top to give more draw as might be sheltered from wind
Wots the best set up internally? does having a 45/90 (2x45's) bend increase draw, is it better to put a T piece in so u can sweep it easily?
thought about getting a pro to do it but reckoned could be up to 1500 quid which is twice wot i paid for caravan and that would buy u a lot of gas/leccy..
Want the job done right but still wanting to do it as cheap as possible
Cheers for any tips
