Somewhere at home, I have a canister type deal from 60s or 70s with holes in the side that fits on a stove like that. It makes it into a rudimentary room/tent heater. Picture the black knight's helmet from Holy Grail shoved down on top of that.

I use a Coleman multifuel stove and lantern. I haven't needed the customer service yet. At the rate things are going they will outlive me!

I'm kind of wanting to replace them though. I want a propane stove with more BTUs and a more compact solar powered led lantern.
Camp Chef Summit on sale today. I now have 20,000 btu per burner. That should work better at high elevation and winter months in particular.

I built a chuckbox around my Coleman 425B to hold all my cooking gear. I have a large brim lantern too (I forget the model number). Both work like a charm.

I've found that the white gas stoves work better at high altitudes, since you can tune the pressure with a few pumps, whereas the pressure of a propane stove is what it is. Doesn't much matter below 9k feet or so, but living in Colorado, it's pretty handy.

Thunk
Congrats on the new stove


Colton
That is a way cool build

I had intended to light up the 426 3 burner yesterday but I got side tracked when my wife brought in the Monday's mail and there was a package with fly tying materials from a friend. I will have to light the stove tonight.

Thanks! I invested far more time in its construction than any sane person should, but I'm pretty pleased with the result. (It also has legs that stow away for campsites without a picnic table to set it on.)

That really is a nice outfit you made there, Colton. I'm going the lazy route and buying a camp kitchen. I'm done with Tupperware boxes. I just want to grab my stuff and go, so organization and simplicity is the goal.

When I was a kid, I wanted a Honda 50...scratch that...I STILL want a Honda 50!

The Coleman looks like the ones SEARS used to sell in the Big SEARS Summer Catalogue

We had a Yamahopper QT50 when I was a kid. I rode that thing over every square inch of our property.

I met three hunters here in So Cal who use the Rokon very effectively. The hunting terrain here is characterized by little "honey holes" separated by miles of barren, steep and rugged country.

Sweet! I have been looking for one of those.

Last weekend, for $10 at the flea market:
