    Is this a peninsula as in the manual or see-thru unit as described?

    1 Answer
    This see-thru model is indeed the version with two open sides. The manual used for this unit is the same one used for the three-sided peninsula; the different specifications and framing requirements are shown in the installation manual.

    Is it possible to enclose one of the long sides on this model?
    1 Answer
    Because this unit has not been tested to have one side enclosed, I do not recommend doing so.

    Excellent Value
    Good price for a quality unit. Easy install and set up. I see no advantage to the higher priced units that are comparable.

    Vail Premium Vent-Free Propane See-Thru Fireplace
    Well made unit. Installation is straight forward. Could use some better instructions for the burner unit regarding remote control options. Looks great when finished with optional trim kits.
    Easy install, looks great, see through design. Installation of extruded outer frame is difficult and wimpy using supplied hardware. I drilled and countersunk some holes in the frame and used sheet metal screws to attach firmly.
