You are on the right track! I just ditched the 3 burner in my 1986 scamp
16 deluxe. The added counter space and weight
savings is WAY worth it.
Also I hated that burner. Having to light
it manually was ridiculous, and that was compounded by the fact that if you so much as twitched on the valve trying to slightly lower the flame it would go out. It seemed like only 5% of the total amount you could turn the valve resulted in a usable adjustment. It was either out, or max.
In my opinion this is the best butane stove for the job! It's light
, compact, and has all of the safety features of the larger steel units.

I love this thing. It has a regulator in it so it doesn't make a big yellow fireball if you move it while it's on.
I also have one of these;

And while I do like it and would bring it in a backpack or on my dual sport bike... it does NOT have a regulator, and it DOES make a huge 2 foot fireball if you so much as look at it sideways.
I actually added a stainless steel braided line to my LP in the trailer and hooked it up with an adapter so I can run these little stoves on the propane
from the trailer OR the butane.
This is the adapter you need to do what I did.

You could go with a single small 10lb propane
bottle as it would still be much cheaper than the butane. I carry 2 20lb tanks and about 6 butane bottles.
