Here are a couple of intersting heater options:

 

1) Cozy Cabin Propane marine heater, 5000 BTU, requires 1" flue, 16"hx8"wx8"d, top is 4"x5" cook top and has auto oxygen depleation and CO shutoff $489.

There is a current thread on Expedition Portal on Chinese knock-off bunk heaters:

Two problems with a wood stove:  there is a learning curve to it's heat output regulation and it is a regular and dirty job to clean.

 

I'm interested in your ideas on how to route the flue on the propane heater.

It looks like the propane heater flue uses the same diameter pipe as the proplex heaters 26mm or 1".

More options are always good!

 

I would agree with JaSAn, that option 2 is a non-starter.   Wood heating is just not a practical option for a truck camper, way too hard to regulate the temperature, the tiny stoves need constant attention, and they are dirty.  

 

Option 1 looks interesting, essentially a 'no moisture' alternative to the silent Wave style heater.   Briefly looking at the spec, it may end up taking up a lot of room as it needs 6" clearance all around, so all of a sudden in becomes 18" x 18" by however tall it needs to be.  Without forced induction, I assume the flue needs to extend some distance out the top to get a 'stack effect' to draw air through?

 

If you can find a way of buying one - the Truma Combi would be my choice.

I vented my Propex down into the truck box.  No CO incursions that my CO detector has noticed.

I'll think I'll stink up this thread with a itty bitty wood burner.

I was asking re: Cozy Cabin Propane heater that looks like it must be installed vertically.  The instruction manual implies but doesn't state it.

I'm getting a shell so starting out from a new pallett. The Dickerson Newport Marine Newport P9000 is another option.  It is complletely inclosed.  Uses about 1 lb of propane in 5 to 7 hr.  I'm thinking about centering in in the cabinets at the 12" level with a side dinette, and venting it through the roof, with an extention tube with shielding after the top is up. It has a little window so you can see the fire. It has a fan with speed control to circulate air around it.  Thinking about making a 3 sided 1'w x 1.5'h x 1' d metal surround angleing the flue at 45deg to the wall then straight up through the ceiling (maybe a small extention tube if the top is down).

Are you sure you want to deal with that configuration every time you want to use it? Dickinson makes great stuff, but I’m thinking it’s not the best option for a pop up.
