I prefer to use LP since I already have a tank on the trailer, and am keeping it simple, so I don't have to haul something separately. I installed a 'T' at the tank with a quick disconnect and a long hose.
Stove is actually a small retro hamburger grill. Probably not to efficient, but its cute!!

I would stick with propane. I like what Pam has done and again it's another item to pack. The only time I've seen white gas used is for alpine hiking. It's lighter (less weight to carry) and works better in below freezing temperatures. Unless your planning on using in sub zero (F) temps it has more cons than pros. It needs to be pumped to maintain pressure while cooking and may be less readily available for replacement than propane.

I purchased a new stove last spring. I went for the single burner/half grill coleman.
Coleman - PerfectFlow Grill Stove - I wouldn't again. It works great but the grill is a major pain to clean. My old stove I'd turn off and pack up. This one left a greasy mess and I felt uncomfortable leaving it out do to bears and other critters. Others may want to ad their experience travelling with BBQs. but for me, I'm sticking with propane stove and nothin' but clean hot dogs on the grill.

I also use a Coleman propane stove that has a grill on one side & a single burner on the other (an older version of the Perfect Flow Grill). A great combination as far as I'm concerned. I do have to admit it requires more cleaning than a two burner stove, but I like to grill! I can cook a steak or burgers on one side & steam vegetables on the other...

If you want max output, then I'm pretty sure you must go with a gasoline stove, even a high efficiency SMEV stove won't match it. We use an old single burner Coleman gasoline stove and it works fine and is compact, but no more so than a single burner propane stove. Also with propane you don't have all that pumping and mess.... but then a gallon of coleman fuel lasts us for years.

Although we have both a propane and a white gas coleman stoves, we use the propane model as much as possible. The fuel for the gas stove here at Canadian Tire costs $16.29 for the one gal, can[3.8L]. That makes it pretty expensive to use for any length of time.

I have a dual fuel single burner Coleman that's great for one pot. It uses either white gas (camp fuel) or regular gas (much cheaper than 16.29 a gal.)
For a meal, I have a two burner I got from Harbor Freight for $32. I put a quick disconnect on it. I like it so much I'm taking my original stove out and putting on a new counter top w/o the "stove hole". I'll install a quick disconnect on the side of the cabinet (out of direct sight) and just use it for coffee. I don't cook in the camper.
Also, I'll put a quick disconnect on the outside of the camper for outside cooking with the same stove.

White gas, in my understanding, was just unleaded (no additive) fuel. We always used regular unleaded gas in our coleman stove with no problem.
Wonder who took that stove, now that I think of it? Must've loaned it to one of the kids..

I have a Safari Grill, which has many flexible features, but I covet the O-Grill by Pro-Iroda. It is simple and neat, easy to clean.

The O-Grill looks interesting.

We use a 2 burner Coleman propane stove for outdoor cooking. Instead of those little 1 lb propane canisters, which don't last long and are expensive, we use a 5 lb propane tank with a 10 foot hose. I keep the 5 lb propane tank in a milk crate that can either sit on the floor of the trailer or in the back of the tow vehicle for transport.

We use a 2 burner Coleman propane and have added a Volcano stove/grill to the mix as well. The Volcano is good for dutch oven cooking as well as grilling. The Volcano is versatile as it can run on propane or briquettes. We use a 20 lb propane tank with a Coleman distribution tree on it, so both stoves and a lantern can be used at the same time. Good system.
