Thanks so much for the reply Erica, i have been living in a shelter logic tent all winter now experimenting with pocket rockets, its working well! I think i have a much better idea of what i can do with them now.

I may be living in a Camper Van after all, i love wood heat. The climate here on Vancouver Island is so damp its crucial. Could i put a mini pocket rocket in a van safely?

My goals are 1) Too have small heater size. 2) long sticks to get a longer burn

Also i was wondering if anyone has tried packing cob around the burn barrel and bottom of the pocket rocket to retain heat for longer.
In a small space like a van it could make all the difference.

So 2 Questions. Would it be safe or would i suffocate? Has anyone built mass around a pocket rocket?

thanks for your replies

Can i use Galvanized duct for my vertical chimney next to the bell? or will it get too hot and off-gas. How hot do vertical chimneys usually get?

I am building my first RMH in a 10by20 shelterlogic tent/portable garage. which i will then be living in. obviously i need to insulate the mass from the ground in order to retain heat. I have decided to use Styrofoam board under the mass/bench though it is a compromise, since it is a bad choice environmentally. I figure i cant use foam board under the burn tunnel because it would melt. so i am going for the standered brick perlite/clay mix under the burn tunnel according to the book (Ianto)

Question; does this sound right too you guys? could i use foam board under the burn tunnel if there was a layer of brick between? how much heat will i lose too the ground if i don't? anyone found a better way?

appreciate any feedback, this is my first post, Thanks
