Anyone ever added a fireplace to their travel trailer?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone on here has ever added a fireplace to their travel trailer? While we were shopping for our first travel trailer I saw the fireplace in a Kodiak trailer and I really wanted one, however the deal I got on my Aspen Trail I could not turn down. I couldn't see spending an additional $5K just to get the fireplace in the Kodiak. Has anyone ever installed a fireplace after the fact? Can it be done and if so where would I put it? I dont recall exactly where the fireplace was in the Kodiak but for some reason I want to say it was under the TV. Unfortunately my trailer is about 150 miles from me at the beach where I intend to use it primarily so I can't just run by and look at it to see if it's even possible to add it. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't see why it could not be added in. Couple of things to note; mine is on the same circuit as the electric water heater element and there is a cut out solenoid to keep you from running both at once and overloading the circuit. You have a limited amount of power to use so you have to manage it properly.

The fireplaces are fairly shallow 8"-10" so you have a fair bit of wasted space behind them if you install them in place of a regular cabinet. They are held in with 4-6 screws and then plugged into an outlet. Rocket science it ain't.
