If you're planning a big summer road trip, it's time to start upgrading your RV. Make sure your whip has all the latest amenities from plush seating to multimedia entertainment systems to make your "home away from home" as cozy as it can be. One easy upgrade is an electric fireplace - ideal for both ambiance and supplemental heat. Whether you opt for a freestanding stove, direct wire or plug in a firebox, enjoy togetherness time in your motorhome over a roaring fire that costs just pennies an hour to operate. Here are some of our favorite models for RVs, but ultimately you will need to measure your available space for installation and then we'd be happy to tailor a recommendation to your situation.

Cut your cabinet based on the dimensions inside of the firebox flange
The flange is generally 1/2" and is on the top and the sides of each electric firebox. Leave a few inches of air space inside cavity above unit to allow for air intake.
Create a support for your firebox underneath the unit
The support frame is most often made of wood and should allow the firebox to sit level and avoid movement while you're on the road.
- Plug the unit into a 110V outlet inside the cavity or direct wire appropriately
Slide the firebox into the cut-out and secure
Electric fireplaces do not require any clearance from combustible material (ex. wood trim or laminate) or provision for venting, but you will need to leave a few inches of air space inside cavity above unit to allow for air intake.
Trim the outside of firebox appropriately
Most people use material similar to their cabinet trim. Review our customer pictures for inspiration.
