I have one from my Truck Camper days, in California for the last few years there were a lot of camp sites where they wouldn't allow wood burning but a propane fire pit was OK. It worked out great. Fast Forward to today, I have it with me in the TT but just realized after reading this I don't have a tank to connect to except the 2, 7gals for the trailer, kind of inconvenient to use those. I am going to have to look for a way to connect it to the low pressure quick disconnect for the BBQ or Outside Kitchen.

I love mine, don't leave home without it, bought the connection that attaches to the side of my 364.

But of my kids are border line allergic to the smoke of the fire and after a wood fire, they usually get sick. The propane fire pit attaches directly to my propane feed on my 364 and is so simple. It might not be traditional but at the conveniences (kids not sick, ease of use, no firewood to buy, etc.) outweigh that

Dear friends of ours now use one for camping due to the Hub being a dbl lung transplant recipient. I love a campfire, but the convenience of that propane set up cannot be denied. And I'd gladly trade a wood fire any day for more time w/my friend.

Correct, it's more like a propane BBQ grill than anything else. I'll run mine for 3-4 hours (like from sundown to bedtime,) and sometimes a little longer. I usually carry 2 20# tanks in the truck bed for the fire, but you could just as easily connect it to your camper LPG supply...you can buy a "Y" connector that goes right on your tank, one hose to the camper supply and the other to your fire pit.

I've used mine a number times. For those times where you can't burn, it's a nice touch. There are quite a number of styles out there from $100 and up. Don't know if these will be compatable with TTs Lp system. I dont think the Little Red cf is, since the gas control is integral with the regulator and POL connection. As far as low pressure Lp vs high press Lp that probably won't make a lot of difference since the gas volume control has considerable range from a normal setting where it doesn't have a huge flame to overkill
