Likes: small stove
cheap price

Dislikes: Hard time getting a fire going, tiny box 3 hr burn times if your lucky.
Cheap blower fan

Comments: Heating my 12x70 trailer with this is an impossible task, struggles to heat just half the trailer for that matter. Wish i had gone one size bigger stove wise. Getting a fire going is hard and the stove smokes out the air intake holes til it gets going good. Cheap blower fan won't last long. 20x20 area is about all this stove can handle in 30 degree weather.
