Stacking stove on furnace

I have a suburban NT furnace that I have installed on my 1972 Overlander. I am looking to put a 17inch stove on top of the furnace. It will require me to build the kitchen counter tops a couple inches higher than usual, but does anyone know how much clearance I need on top of the furnace for this to be safe, or any reason in general that I shouldn’t do this? Thanks for any help I can get.

Both appliances should have info on requirred clearances, in the manual or data plate on appliance.

normally the clearance is to combustables such as wood, my guess is those two could be zero between.

What you suggest doing has been done in the past by the Airstream factory. In fact, both my 1964 Overlander and the 1978 Minuet have their furnaces mounted on the floor below the kitchen range. I am sure that there must be some specifications for required clearances in the literature that came with your furnace and range that would clarify the minimum as this could vary between and among various models available with each. There is approximately 6.5" clearance between the bottom of the range and the top of the furnace in my Overlander and approximately 8.5" clearance between the bottom of the range and the top of the furnace in my Minuet.


Good luck with your investigation!

FWIW the air ventilation requirements of each appliance must be met too, to avoid heat buildup in the enclosed space.

Both my 89 and 96 have the furnace under the stove. Counter height is normal so there must be a way

From the Suburban manual the NT30 for instance, has a zero clearance top, front and rear while the left and right sides are 1"
