I am a total newbie, and have watch many videos online. I like the look of the Bell Tents, together with a stove.

I was previously told in another thread, that a stove may not be a good idea.

This has confused me, as all those videos I have seen have the stoves, either working during the day, and/or day and night.

Do you have a stove, is it ok? How do you find it during the night, if you use it over night.

I was thinking about buying a Bell Tent and Outbacker stove.

I have good sleeping bags, but thought it would be nice having the stove for both cooking, and for heating if needed.

Thanks

Hi again 8inary

I hope that my previous post doesn't put you off getting a bell tent and wood stove; I would certainly like one myself - be ideal for winter evenings. But I would be inclined to let the fire die before retiring for the night; as I explained previously, carbon monoxide build up would be my main concern. These stoves are not built and tested to the same standards that household stoves are, and I would not leave them stoked up unattended.

I have seen many people using stoves happily. My provisos would be 100% cotton tent, full flu kit / flashing kit as specified for stove and tent, including spark arrester. CO Detector as specified as suitable, ventilation. No kids, though I know others do. Maybe if it was a big tent and room for a good fireguard. Kids seem to trip over a lot, and with rugs and stuff on the floor.,,

Cooling ash gives off CO until it is wholly cold.

Have a look around some of the campsites that attract cooking on fires and stove type folk and have a nosey?

I would Iove a tent with stove but itís just not practical for me. But I have looked into it.

what is wrong with a good old fashioned gas booker and a fan heater on ehu? so much safer for all, no worries about sparks getting on the tent no fumes, ok no ambience either but I know what I would rather have! safety first no just for me but those around me too

Completely agree with safety points raised above, I've used one in a Robens Kiowa, and would urge anyone considering one to buy an oversized copper tray-or similar with an upstand to catch anything that may fall out/roll out during refuelling activities. We bought a 36" circular from ebay for £50 and placed a 'sacrificial' overlapping rug underneath, just in case....Fortunately never needed, it's a bit faffy, but the ambience 😎😎 oh yes, it's worth it.
