I don't use it in a tent but I made a small wood stove out of a propane tank to heat my work shop with.  I used 3" car exhaust for the chimney.  I don't see why it wouldn't work for your application.

 I've done the propane thing,  ok if you're truck camping. propane makes moisture in the tent and I always woke with a headache.
 I'm looking at my small stove, lightweight tent combo for packing in 1-2 miles from the truck for a few overnight trips.

Check out Seek outside, they may have just what you are looking for. I have their 8 man Tipi with their large stove It is nice to take the chill off before bed and when you wake up.

Game changer for sure! Stoves are generally easy to set up second time, once they are burnt in, generally don't even need a saw to collect sticks to burn in them, but the bigger diameter wood you use, the longer the burn will be!  If weight is a concern, make sure you get a cylinder stove!

You are in a small meltable back packing tent, perhaps a stable candle job would be all that would be need to take a bit of chill and humidity out of the air.  We have used one on early season canoe trips, they are safest if hung and not on the floor of the tent.  With bigger canvas tents, the three dogs are safe with the charcoals and kids.  With the big nylon domes and in a campground situation, a flame proof rug and an electric heater is really convenient and safe, but of course a stout extension cord and a place to plug it in is a big help.

Like degabe, I was thinking about a Buddy propane heater.  They are easy to use, economical and work very well.

They do work well, but that tent and stove combo in my post above weighs less than the Lil Buddy heater!

Old_goat2 is that a one person setup or could you go with two? Could you add a picture of the stove broken down?

Thanks,
Dave

It's two person with plenty of room for gear and a pile of firewood. If you do YouTube, search "Kifaru cylinder stove" and there's a good video of the stove and you can search the shelter also, Kifaru Sawtooth, Kifaru's website also has good pictures and videos, they aren't sponsors or I would post a web link. I think I have a picture of the stove packed up and attached to the outside of my backpack, it's in the black nylon bag.

Admittedly, when looking at the cost and weight of some of these things, I'm hard pressed to figure out the advantage of a large tent with a stove over a used travel trailer.  The only horses I have are under the hood of my chevy so I'm either hauling it on my back or camping next to the pickup.  Of course, it's a lot easier to store a tent...

I'd say no title fees, no tag fees every year, no new tires.

 Gotta have a place to park it,  hard to take trailers down some forest roads.
 If I can get a trailer in somewhere so can someone else.
 I think the small tent / stove option is for the person wanting to park and walk off away from the crowds , like me

There is something very traditional and satisfying about tents with woodstoves. Nothing beats the feeling of self-sufficiency in knowing you've got a dependable shelter, nice stove, and a supply of good wood waiting for those cold wet times. The smell of a sulfur match and crackle of dry spruce is part of the wilderness experience for me. I love drifting off to sleep while watching the glow from a nice fire.

RV? Maybe, but I've been saying no to wheels for a long time.  ;)

My hunting truck is a 6 cylinder Subaru Outback, my trailer is a 4 by 6 box cargo trailer.  I see that Ford is coming out with a full size van that will have all of the same power line features as the four wheel drive F 150 pickups.  My old Ford van had a fold down leather back bench seat that was more comfortable to sleep on than my bed at home and screened windows to let in some fresh air.  i miss my van.

6/21/19. 1st day of summer and it was cold enough last night to freeze the dew on my truck, and thats only at 2500ft elevation. I'm sure quite a bit colder up the mountain where I hunt
 Sure am looking forward to a nice warm tent.
