Not sure of anything, just putting it out there.  Maybe you could make a telescoping flue out of 1" and 1.5" conduit.  I know there are some issues using galvanized pipe for flue pipe, but you can burn and oxidize the zinc and make it safe.  Think I might just start out my making a shelf for my Mr Heater in the middle of the cabinets at the 1' step level and lining the surrounding cabinets with metal and adding some doors.  Kind of like this picture.  I'm also thinking about a gravity feed stainless 3 gal water container, in place of tank and pump.  Sorry the only props for a stove and water container I had were to resize a bbq smoker and a rain barrel.

Not going to fit much in that refrigerator  :P

 

My experience with a Mr Heater was not good.  Even at 30º outside I had way too much condensation; everything wet inside.

 

With the way I camp (2 - 8 weeks at a time) portable water containers are a lot easier.  I can fill almost anywhere, don't need to find a camper accessible fill station and carry a hose.  I use 1 gallon jugs; mostly for ease of lifting.

Maybe the increased moisture isn't as much of an issue for the desert folks?

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.

 

 

The learning curve is very short and I can go 3 weeks in a wall tent with a wood stove and have very little ash in the stove when I am done. I'm not advocating the use of a wood stove in a truck camper, and if I was going to cut a vent hole it would be for some type of propane heater.

if you used hardwood charcoal it would burn a long time with vary little ash. Then in a pinch round up some sticks.

A guy on youtube called Justin Credible used one of the P9000 for years in Canada and loved it. It uses a double wall flue so intake air comes from outside. I just looked and it appears he's switched to some sort of wood burning stove/fireplace and switched Class B's also.

 

A removable double wall flue might not be the easiest thing to figure out but certainly not the hardest either.
