I have a surplus command post 10x20 wall tent that I will be taking on a 2 week trip in early November. Will be camping around 8000 feet and need some stove recommendations. I have a LP furnace out of a camper
I was thinking of rigging up but would rather burn wood.

Any advice on what I should get or stay away from?

Thanks

Check out this site. I've used a bunch of their stoves, and I was very pleased.

Just make sure you buy a large enough stove for your applications. Last year I bought a surplus small GP tent and took it out with in the winter for a trial run. I paired it up with a yukon mil surp wood stove and found out the hard way I needed a larger stove. It's so small that needs to be fed wood about every hour or you'll wake up freezing because the fire died. A larger stove is on my list now.

I own three Four Dog stoves, I like them a lot. The titanium ones have become insane expensive, they're my treasures. My welded steel one is better for semi-permanent set-ups that you can reach by boat or car. You aren't going to be hauling one far on a toboggan.

Does your tent have a 'stove jack' in the roof? I always liked the asbestos kind, but I don't know if you can get them anymore. There's nothing wrong with using 1 joint of double walled stove pipe to go through the stove jack either.



When I was guiding/outfitting, I used a stove heat-shield board between my stove and the tent wall...just as added insurance.



What ever you do, be careful!! I can't think of many things less fun than waking up in a burning tent.

yep has the stove jack. Link is representative of size and shape mine looks to be a lot newer.

Would 2 big buddy heaters work? I think on high its rated at 18K BTU.

Going to set it all up next week and put gear in to see how it will work I'll get some pic's.

I wouldn't put a propane or fuel oil/kerosene heater in any tent I'm going to sleep in. I personally wouldn't trust any heater that isn't vented through a conduit...like stovepipe. You may never wake up.



If you use a portable 'sheep-herder's stove' that burns wood, it'll keep a pretty large wall-tent pretty cozy. You do need a flue damper installed in the stovepipe and a spark arrester screen on the top. You damper down the flue and neck down the air intake on the stove and it will smolder all night. Just needs wood added in the AM.



When I was uiding and pulling mules I spent several months living in wall tents every hunting season. they can be 'right comfy' if a guy puts visqueen down for a floor and has a liner for extreme cold weather like 20 below.



A single sheep-herder stove will keep your 10x20 pretty toasty down to about 0 degrees. A guy can always set one up at each end and run stovepipe across the inside of the sidewall and T it in.

Any heated camper or tent I have ever been in had a C02 detector in it. Wouldn't go without it.

We use the packer stove in our 10x12 tent and it will run us out of there.

Changed over after our 6gal boat gas can stove rusted out.



Darn near everybody up here has used the old 6gal boat gas tank as a homemade stove.

They work very well even in really cold weather.

That looks ok if you're gonna be truck transportable and don't mind a 50 pound unit. I used to have to pack our stoves into the back country on mules, so we needed a lightweight stove with folding legs and stovepipe that would fit inside.
