Adding a fireplace?

Has anyone added an electric fireplace to their alpha wolf? I would love to add a fireplace to my alpha wolf 29qb-l. I was wanting to add it under the tv but I知 not sure the wall is deep enough for a built in fireplace. Is there any way to safely hang a 45-50 pound wall mounted fireplace on an interior wall?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Do you have the circuits to handle a fireplace? you may try the search function at the upper right of the page there are many articles about fireplaces and mods.

I'd imagine that like everything else in the trailer there are 2-3 companies that make 99% of the fireplaces. Etrailer has a bunch listed. I've also read (somewhere on the internet) of people going to walmart/home depot and buy a free standing fireplace then removing the out enclosure and installing as needed.

As for hanging it - make sure you hit stud(s) with it. If spacing doesn't work out, I'll often mount a 1x8 to the wall and make sure that hits studs and then will mount whatever I'm hanging to that.

We thought the fireplace in a rv was silly.

Boy, were we wrong.

We found we use it a lot!

We were at a 30 amp campsite Columbus weekend. Ran it for three days. The gas heat only ran a few hours.

And the ambiance factor. Looks nice.
