I stuck with Coleman because itís what I already owned. Itís 30 years old and still works well. Most of the low pressure camp stoves Iíve seen are a lot bulkier than my trusty Coleman, but perhaps there are some nice compact units out there?
Jon,
You are correct about bulkiness. That is my biggest complaint about the Ranger II. Additionally, it is not as wind resistant as a Coleman type stove, IMO. On the rare occasion I use mine, I find it needs a separate wind barrier.

Sorry, I'm just trying to wrap my head around why anyone in their right mind would need a 50 foot long propane hose to go camping?

50 feet of hose might be convenient when using a propane fire pit.

50 foot was what I had, and in fact has been very convenient when group camping to set up a central kitchen area,
did I mention I like gadgets and convenience?

It is much better and often more convenient to have more than you need than to no have enough!
