Weight of Tent Stoves

Weight:  Stoves that heat a 12'x14' tent can easily weigh 40-50 pounds plus.  If you need a stove at a base camp or tent camping near a road, buy the stove you need regardless of size or weight.

Stove Metal Thickness:   Determines the weight of your stove. 

Gauge - The lower the gauge number, the thicker the rolled steel or galvanized steel.  Thicker metal increases strength, durability, and weight.

10 gauge - .135 inches
12 gauge - .105 inches
14 gauge - .074 inches
18 gauge - .05 inches
