    Bigfoot winter cold mods

    Dave, Cool little stove you have there, what brand is it and is there an outside combustion air inlet? After our last trip I am seriously considering a Dickenson (or similar ) diesel fireplace/heater for our next camper but I can't seem to find much on how well they work at altitude...

    Bigfoot winter cold mods
