The Gstove Heat View comes in two sizes: the Gstove Heat View & the Gstove Heat View XL. The main difference between these two versions is the size of the firebox. The Gstove Heat View XL is more than 30% longer giving you more space to burn firewood, extra room for pots and pans, a larger dryrack and of course a lot more heat. So if you have a large tent that needs some extra warmth to help you through the chilly nights the XL might be a better choice for you. It’s important to not that all accessories are compatible with both stoves as the flue diameter is identical.

Key Features of the Gstove
Baffle Plate: A built in baffle creates a barrier between the fire and the top of the wood stove and reflects heat back towards the fire. The baffle also exposes the smoke to a ‘secondary burn’ before it passes into the flu pipe system. The additional heat energy from the baffle results in a more complete combustion resulting in less smoke, a cleaner burn, and more efficiency.
Folding Legs: Sturdy leg attachments at welded directly onto the firebox. Short legs are included with the Gstove and fold towards the firebox for easy set up and transport. Stainless steel locking pins and wing nuts ensure a stable base. Longer legs can be purchased separately to put more distance between the firebox and the floor, or to raise your cooking surface.
Air Intake adjustor: Turn the intake valve at the bottom of the firebox door to increase airflow to your fire. Close it to reduce airflow for a lower, slower burn.
Internal Burn Grate: Grates in the firebox allow air to get to your wood from below for more complete combustion and provide the ability to clean out ashes even when the fire is still burning.
Tempered Glass Window: Monitoring your fire is easy through the tempered glass window on the firebox door of the Gstoev Heat View. The airwash system mounted next to the window can be adjusted to keep your view of the flames clear.
Removeable Door: The door can be completely removed from the firebox so you can shake out all of the ashes before packing it up.
Top Exit Flue Pipe System: The Gstove includes a top exit flue pipe system can be vented vertically through the canopy of a canvas tent with a stove jack. Top exiting the stove is recommended for extremely cold climates and large tents because the more flue pipe sections exposed to the inside of the tent, the more heat is introduced to the environment. The Gstove Heat View flue pipe system can be adapted for side exiting with the purchase of accessory bent pipe sections.
Ash Scraper: A long skinny stainless steel scraping blade is included with every Gstove to clean out ash from under the burning grate even when the stove is in use.
Affordable Starter Stove with Options to Upgrade
The Gstove includes everything you need in a camp stove at a budget friendly price point. CanvasCamp offers a wide range of accessories to allow to add parts and features you need and avoid paying for features you don’t. The Gstove can be customized to suit a variety of climates so this stove can adapt to adventures you haven’t even considered yet.
Check out all the accessories for the Guide Stove before making your purchase! Get yourself an oven to get cooking. Dry your socks with a clothes hanger attached to the flue pipe. Use a 90° pipe section to side exit the stove instead of venting it vertically through the tent canopy. A heat shield can be installed on the flue pipe to protect you and your tent from accidental bumps and burns. A custom fit watertank can provide hot water anytime you’d like. All accessories are compactible with both models of the Gstove Heat View.
The Gstove weighs less than 10 kg (22 lbs) which is a good balance of portability and durability. The folding handles on top of the stove make it easy to carry and store, and can also be used as a drying rack. The flue pipe system, ashscraper and grates can be disassembled and stored inside the firebox for compact storage and transport.
Heat Output and Efficiency
The Gstove is HOT! Equipped with several thoughtfully designed features to maximize heat output and efficiency. Baffle plates, air intake adjuster, cylinder stove body, and burn grates help this stove burn hot and radiate heat. An optional Airflow Controller can be installed in between the flue sections, so you’ll be able to control the intensity of the wood burning.
Canvas bell tents are not for use with open fire pits. Fire safety is the responsibility of the user. We encourage you to educate yourself and practice vigilant fire safety.

Always check local fire restrictions prior to starting a fire as rules and regulations may change frequently throughout the year. CanvasCamp cannot be held liable for any damage or injury to persons or property resulting from the use or misuse of fire or flammable materials in or around our tents. When using one of our Exits, we advise to leave a minimum distance of 1m (3ft) between the stove and the Exit.
Always use a carbon monoxide detector when using a wood burning stove inside your tent.
