My camper only has a cook top, so I have come to love my Camp Chef stove with oven. It is much larger than a traditional Coleman, but I love fresh biscuits for breakfast and I prefer cooking outside.

I bought a Blackstone griddle. We really like it. Can cook anything on it from chicken and burgers to pancakes, eggs and stir fry. There’s a 17” model with one burner. I have the 28” model because of two burners. 28” model has legs but it can also sit on a table without them. Easy clean up. Check it out. Lots of the chain stores carry them. Can get bigger ones also

We like the Coleman Roadtrip two burner propane

This has several different grilles to use and runs off of the 1lb propane canisters...

Like to setup with at a right angle under the patio canopy. Then have a couple of folding tables up against the POPUP Trailer..

Have had this setup for many years with no issues...

The webster models probably have the best heat seal when cooking but this coleman model has lots of cooking accessories for grilling meals. Love having the two grille tops... bacon on one side eggs on the other haha... Easy to setup and comes with it own roll around carry case...

Cleanup is a snap. Has a water area under the grill top to catch all of the drippings... hose off real easy...

For a small portable, the lightweight butane can't be beat. It is offered by several makers. Measures about 10" X10" X 3" thick. Has it's own spark ignighter and cost $20 - $25. The brands are virtually all the same, I think Coleman even has their name on one. I love mine!

for the traditional camp stove an old coleman white gas stove. pick one up at a garage sale or on ebay, clean it up.
For a lantern, again an older coleman dual mantle white gas lantern

If you want a brighter light, go with the older mantles that had thorium in them. Still a bunch available from coleman or from other mfg. Yes, thorium is radioactive and releases alpha and beta particles.


For a lantern, you can't beat a battery powered LED model. No stinky fuel, no special funnel, no delicate mantels to replace...

If you liked the Coleman, perhaps it could be repaired. Coleman will get it operating for a fair price, and you could maybe do the cosmetic work.

I have used a lot of stoves over the years. I used Coleman for years, then had a lantern that was not good when new. I sent it to the factory and it is still junk.

I like Brunton stoves. Stainless steel and very dependable.

16 year old Weber Q for me. Lots of ways to cook and lots of stoves or grills to choose from depending on your style and or needs. They all work

We have a Weber Q 2000 and it works great. Easy to clean, replacement parts readily available if/when needed. Love it.

Yup, all aluminum & stainless steel. Had our 26" 3 burner for 10 years or more.
