Van or RV Flue Kit 2
This flue kit has all of the components that you will need to install your small stove in a van or an RV. This installation kit includes the following components:
- 1x 1000mm of single wall flue pipe
- 1x Adaptor – single wall to twin wall flue
- 1x Trim plate
- 2x Wall band
- 1x Silicone boot roof flashing and fixing kit
- 1x Storm collar
- 1x Rain cap cowl
- 1x Closure cap
- 1x 800mm of twin wall flue pipe
- 1x 300mm of twin wall flue pipe
- 1x Cartridge of fire cement
- 1x Cartridge of heatproof silicone sealant
Our small stove has a 4” outlet, and we use 4”/100mm diameter single wall flue. If you would like a flue kit with a 5″/125mm sizing, then please specify this in the order note.
Please note that our stove is not included with this installation kit, and this flue kit is not manufactured by Midtherm.
The flue parts in this van or RV kit have been designed to exit straight up through the roof of your van or RV, which is the most straightforward and affordable way to install our tiny stove in your small space. By installing your stove with this van or RV flue kit, you will also benefit from the extra heat that will be radiated from your single wall flue pipes. Our first flue kit uses more single wall flue, which will radiate extra heat into the cabin of your van or RV. On the other hand, our second flue kit has more twin wall flue. This provides additional support to your flue system, and twin wall flue can be positioned closer to any combustible materials or windows.
The rain cap cowl can be added to the 800mm length of flue, but you can also add it to the 300mm length of flue pipe which is also included in this kit. This additional length of flue pipe is useful for improving the draw of your flue when your van or RV is parked up. The rain cap can be easily removed and replaced with a closure cap during longer drives, or if you wish to close the system off.
If you’re looking to get stuck into some wood-fired stovetop cooking, then it’s worth contacting us to help you configure your flue kit with our rear exit kit. This liberates the entirety of your stovetop, which gives you more space for you to use a kettle or any pans on the top of your small stove. You can also add a stainless steel cooktop option to your Hobbit stove, which allows you to cook at a range of temperatures on your stovetop. This additional stove option also helps to prevent any abrasion to your stovetop which can be caused by your pans, and it’s also removable, which makes it quick and easy to clean.
Do I need an AD cowl?
If your van or RV is surrounded by trees or other buildings, then there might not be a consistent flow of air across the top of your flue. On stormy days you might experience down draught problems, where the flue draw momentarily stops. This can potentially lead to smoke being blown back into the stove. To eliminate this, the rain cap which is included in this flue kit can be swapped for an anti-down draught cowl.
