View Full Version : supertarp and oval stove?

have any of you fellows suited up a supertarp with an oval stove yet?
my thoughts were oval med 7 ,so that whenever I get a sawtooth I can just get a 12 wall.
or is a med. just plain overkill and go small.
so I was thinking somebody has got to have tried it by now.
thanks for the input.

I'm getting ready to upgrade my box stove to Ti and was wondering the same thing.

I was also leaning towards the medium 7".

I currently heat my ST and 4man with a small box and the medium Ti oval w/ 7" walls has 279 more cubic inches than the small box so I think it would provide plenty of btu's for the ST and probably even the Sawtooth as is.

As for your "overkill" questions, the ST doesn't heat as efficiently as the tipi's and I'm sure the Sawtooth as well. The stove is in the annex area and more of a space heater than an efficient centralized heater for the entire shelter. I don't think the medium would run you out of the ST. You scoot back a ways from the annex and it cools down considerably.
