    I have a great little camping stove 'The Pipsqueak'.
    The Mk3 version has an internal baffle, rope seal door and airflow control.
    Weighing in at only 20kg it is perfect for using with a small yurt or canvas tent.
    Would anyone in the US like one?

    Wow! That is a nice looking stove.

    There are a number of low volume ptoduction stoves (Sheet metal) for camping in tents and the like. I've had one for years and used it a good deal when my wife came along. It is nowhere near al nice looking.

    Welcome and do tell us more.

    If you're giving them away, sure I'll take one! :cheese:

    Neat stove, there seems to be a growing interest in yurt camping with portable stoves.

    Portable? Maybe we have different definitions for this word...

    There is a van fitting kit available with the Pipsqueak which comes with a vulcanised rubber cone flashing.
    Its an excellent kit. The Pipsqueak size of this little stove makes it great for this application.

    The love of camping under canvas is returning in popularity.
    I am not sure why?
    Everyone wants to live like a refugee for a while?
    Back to simple pleasures.
    Who knows but you are correct that 'glamping' as they
    have coined it here in UK is growing year on year.

    20 kg ? I think that although it maybe at the maximum weight
    to be included in the definition of the word portable, I do know
    some girls who take the Pipsqueak camping. You have a very
    lovely pick up and boast a mighty log splitter!!!
    I am sure you would be able to pick it up

    I'd be very interested in getting one. How do I get one? How much are they?

    Seems more like an advertisement than a review. Maybe speak to Craig (webmaster) about the process of selling stoves here and advertising.

    I just did a google on them and they run about 150 + euros. They come in enamel and different colors as well.
    http://www.belltent.biz/products/8/11/pipsqueak_stove/

    I could not find a dealer in the US though.

    It would be great for a tent or small cabin-cool little stove

    I am in the UK and have a Pipsqueak supplier, I was just exploring
    whether or not an opportunity for this 'type' of stove existed in the US.
    I am not selling them here or in the US yet, just trying to establish a level of interest.
    If someone in the US wished to sell them then I am sure an advert at Hearth.com
    would be an excellent idea.

    No not a back packers stove.
    The best one of those I have seen is
    the bush buddy. I think if you goto
    www.bushbuddy.com you may find it?
    I think you could make one from a couple of old tins that would work well.

    The Pipsqueak works best in a cabin or tent. It happily burns wood( need to cut logs small) and coal.
    I use mine in a bell tent and it heats the space even in Jan.

    cool little stove! I would not mind the weight but I am 6ft 2in and 200lb. It would be great for my very small deer/trout cabin 12x15 and we don't have but a mile or two to get to it.
    A neat little video

    Are there similar stoves in the US? We have a boxwood but it runs out of the cabin and this size seems just about right.
