LOL... now was she drinking?

Well the backsplash is a 14.5"x35.5" piece of underlay luan and three 12"x12" glass tiles... its not more then 10 pounds or so... Im thinking makeing another side dinette table and tileing the top of it... be 4.something of the 12"x12" tiles... my mom said I will get tired of scrubbing the grout...hence why Im gonna make another top lol.

I like the idea of the ez-up and suspending candles from it... just hanging low enough so it doesn't burn lol. I could play around next winter with a bunch or the tea light candle lanterns and make them 12 volt led's ... who knows Im gonna start cheap and go from there lol.

I know this is not quite what you are looking for but these might fit the bill for your lanterns until you get the Yacht lanterns. They are only $19.99
UCO Deluxe Candle Lantern - Aluminum, 80644 | Lanterns | Lights & Lanterns | GEAR | items from Campmor.

Deryk,
I love to hunt in antique and junk stores. I'm always looking for unique items for the Scamp. I've seen lots of neat old lanterns. Most are oil latterns, but you can adapt them to DC or candle power. You may want to buy something practical for now and keep your eye out for that special unique piece while on your journeys. The thrill of the hunt!

Linda, when it starts to warm up I do plan on hitting some of the flea markets looking for cool gypsy/glam kinda stuff! I might end up with oil lamps...I guess with hot and cold running water washing the lamp fluid off isn't a big deal. I think Dietz makes a red and a blue globe....kinda want the eerie mystical look lol

I carry small "hurricane-type" oil lamps for outdoor lighting AND mosquito control...they burn kerosene-based "citronella oil" very well, thus serving two purposes!

Their wicks are also much sturdier than those gossamer-like wicks on propane lights, a real benefit for our rough-and-tumble style of camping.

Deryk- I know you're anti-battery, but check out the Brunton Glorb if you can find them. We picked up 4 of them last year on Ebay for about $10 each. They're about 2 in. in diameter and 6 in. high. The have hi/lo settings and we used them all season last year on a single set of 4 AA batteries. Of course you could go with rechargeables as well but with such a long battery life, it's hardly worth the extra expense.

Brian...I did a Google search and Walmart had them for 30 dollar's... 250 hour's are nice but wonder how bright it is...and i was thinking i need more then one lol.

Believe it or not Francesca is right about lamps and citronella oil to keep the bugs away.

That might be the plan. Doing a medieval reenactments for so long i do kinda like keeping it simple sometimes...but I totally plan on buying a few of those led fake candles and using them inside my ParkLiner for ambiance.

I just bought this small lantern at our Eddie Bauer store outlet for 70% off! Eddie Bauer - Eddie Bauer Solar Dynamo LED Lantern customer reviews - product reviews - read top consumer ratings. It is both solar and runs on a crank/dynamo system. NO BATTERIES! Unfortunately, the website says it is no longer available. That's too bad 'cause it looks like a "sweet" lantern. You might try the outlet store near you.
Happy Camping,
Gilda

Homedepot sells the 3D gel Smart Tiles - the ones that are made to look like glass look pretty good & are light, have seen a few trailers with them in them as a back splash.
