Been using these for years. First as an emergency backup in the house in case power went out. It became my ‘go to’ stove. The Compact didn’t have a stove so I got another just for that. Recently replaced it with a newer Gas One model that takes butane or propane.

Henry - thanks so much for posting. My wife will be happy to know I no longer hold the title of 'Man with the most cooking devices in one camper'.

I think you'll be happy with the Coleman. We use a 413F two burner along with their collapsible oven for most of our camping meals (both from a yard sale in the late sixties when I was in college). Coffee perks on a nineties vintage 533. Light comes from a couple of fifty year old lanterns - their hissing sound is unmistakable. Coleman's liquid fuel gear has been a big part of camping experience.

Charcoal has its place as well. Grilling is usually done on the Son of Hibachi (also from my school days) and the Cobb does a really good job of smoking when we have more time in camp. I'm getting better with stews and cobblers from the dutch oven but still need more practice.

In fifteen years, the Scamp's stove has only been used for coffee when we've overnighted in a rest area. The microwave has been fired up a couple of times to nuke a bowl of soup when it was too cold to cook outside.

I don't have any electric or propane appliances unless you count the Campfire-in-a-Can which makes a pretty mean S'more.

We camp fairly often in the Smokies - Nantahala NF mostly and sometimes Smokemont in the Park. Let us know if you get that far east sometime.

Hi Al, we may be going east this camping season, and if we do I will try to connect with you somewhere. Been thinking about the Campfire in a can device. Have not tried the Cobb, but do bake occasionally in a dutch oven.

Don't do much with charcoal when using the Trailer, just a bit too messy and takes too long. We like to walk and by the time we get back we are tired and I don't want to wait for the charcoal then the grill to warm up. So propane has been our mainstay.

Take care

while camping out in Europe we noticed a lot of campers were using those little pocket stoves.

I have one just haven't used it yet
