    It works fine as long as theres a vent at the base and draw though the top hat

    I'd agree with that. If youre gonna splurge on a tentipi, sooner or later you will want a good stove. Fourdogs or something similiar.

    I did have the newer tentipi stove but never used it inside. I tried it in the garden and because of the round underside I found emptying ash out a bit of a pig.

    I ended up using 2 Coleman black cat heaters.

    Yep but you don't need to get them all at once so I wouldn't let that stand in the way of a purchase.

    Personally I'd buy the lavvu alone first and then play with different fire options. I used open fires in firebowls and a variety of stoves before I settled on what I preferred.

    You just need to DIY a heatshield of some sort, I'm about to order one myself so I'll bung some pics up when I get round to it.

    How does it stay in place Cliff, have you bolted it through the flue or used some kind of friction fit, a chain from the top maybe?

    I'll probably need a couple of those joined together for my Bergans, I was going to see if I could pick up a cheap large stainless thermos and mod that somehow. I've got loads of 10mm hardware cloth lying about though so might use that yet.

    I played around with a few different baffle mods and stoves and flues and tipis. The home made baffles still tend to get very very hot.
    I found the best way is to get a decent plumbers mat, and some metal clips from a car place, and strap the mat on the outside of the baffle, where it exits the
    tipi.

    Have you got a cotton tipi Dave, do you think that method would work with a nylon version like the Bergans?

    I've had polycotton tentipis and a bison Lavvu and nylon tipi's, and a tent heater, very similiar to the old moskoselkatan one, made by frisport, and a stainless helsport and a frontier stove, which I modded.
    The plumbers mat method should work quite well with the Bergans. It stays cool, even when the baffle is very very hot.
    I certainly wouldnt let any baffle touch a nylon version directly. Even the baffle on the 'proper' tipi stoves get very hot.

    I know the frontier stoves are very popular, but there is a BIG difference between them and a 'proper' stainless stove, specifically made for a tipi.

    Yeah I know but :) She'll go mental if I splash out 700 big ones on a stove, she's already flipped about me buying another tent.

    For the weight and pack size I think the Frontier will work nicely on canoe trips, I might do something with the legs though as I think I'd prefer something a bit lower. I'm looking to put an internal baffle in the main chamber to stop the flames going straight up the flue, I'll probably mod the door too and put a turny damper door in somehow. All good fun


    EDIT:

    Is this sales thread well and truly highjacked? Apologies for my part in that Joe, just give the word and I'll clean it up

    Epic threadjack is epic!

    It's ok... leave it all there, there's a fair bit of useful information in-between my seller comments.

    It's now on ebay before being kept forever.

    No, someone has offered me £150 more but slightly after I started talking to FreddyFish.

    But that person contacted me via ebay shortly after it was listed..

    After being on here for days, only after saying it was going on ebay was I made an offer.

    It's lose lose for me and it's pretty annoying.

    Ooh that's unlucky. I always think it's possible to get more money for specialist kit on eBay but I prefer to sell via the forum so I know it's going to a good home. By the time you take fees into account though there will be nothing in it.
