Hey there, thanks for all the pics! Looks awesome!

we ordered a cubic woodstove (excited!) for our 79 argosy and also plan on having it exit out the curve. Wondering if you got silicone or regular dektite round flashing?

Also, looks like your stove pipe in the pic is larger than 3" diameter (maybe im imagining this). Did you surround it with heat shield pipe as well?

Last question, what did you use for your chimney exiting the trailer and rain cap?

Thanks!!

K.Cham, contact Nick (contact info above) he'll set you up properly. Thicker pipe is insulated and needed to keep flu hot and smoke hot to reduce/eliminate creosote buildup. I used Nick's insulated pipe and works great - slight adjustment to the base is needed to fit stove pipe top. Working great for me. 30 of this week and toasty inside.

Was able to build the bathroom door. Took a lot of head scratching to figure out what I wanted to do. Settled on this design. I think it makes the corrugated look more balanced in the trailer.

Did you get your stove in? Would love to see pics of your install.

Wow, fantastic job!

How long does a renovation like that take and how many people involved?

Thanks!

Bought the trailer in November of 2015 so it's been a year to get it this far. It was just me. I did try to find someone to hire for the axle replacement but wound up doing it myself when shops didn't call me back. Turned out OK when the alignment shop said I was within a 1/4in side to side. I learned a lot of new skills during this project. Airforums was my number one source for information.

Finished applying Bus Kote to the roof. Masked off some of my roof patches as I like their look. Three coats with two coats of clear protectant after sealing seams with vulkem and running eternabond over awning and end cap seams. Will keep the water out and the ceramic particles will help reject heat from the sun. Water proofing is more important to me than looks but it's look is growing on me.

Awesome work, there are quite a few ideas I might "borrow" for my own rebuild once I get to the interior portion.

On the stove, does the base come standard with the Grizzly? Looking on the website it looks like the unit comes with four legs or the floor mount pedestal.

Also do you have any past experience with Bus Kote or were you sold by testimony and literature? After reading from another bus forum I'm thinking of going the way Henry Solarflex but haven't committed one way or another.

Thanks!

The base I used is their stainless fresh air intake (CB-2070-SS) that I plumbed to the bottom of the trailer. It's not provided with the cost of the stove.
I went with Bus Kote based on the ceramic particles in the coating, excellent reviews, available clear coat protection meant to work with the product and local school districts using it on their vehicles. Just one of many options.

Thanks

It's legs are screwed through the intake grate to the counter top. Meant to be permanent but can be removed. Travels great.

Now that you say that, on a closer inspection of your photo I see that the grating is below the stove and not a face plate...

Thanks for the clarification!
