I also just carry a spare 20 pounder just for the heater. Too cheap to have a quick disconnect hose made to hook up to the grill port on the outside of the trailer. Plus it would limit where you could hold your phony fire.

Do these portable campfires keep you warm? My wife and I full time it in California and get tired of the chilly nights. I'm looking for a solution so we can spend more time outside. I've thought of getting a table top propane heater or a stand up propane heater. The stand ups would be difficult to transport when the time comes. My wife's concerned the tabletop heater wouldn't heat her up enough.

So besides looking like a campfire, do these propane campfires warm you up?

It was quite cold in Key West last February and we always had company around ours when we fired that "Lil Red Campfire" up.

So yes, IMHO.

I think the Lil Red Campfire looks pretty cool. Guess the kids could not roast marshmallows on it though, as I imagine that could get pretty messy if one dropped, and kids always manage to drop them lol.

Hahaha, we cook marshmellows on the one that I posted. If someone gets some marshmellow on it, it just burns off after a bit. Completely clean.

I am intrigued by the little red campfire though. Hopefully I will run across one someday and see what kind of felt heat it puts out.

You can't winter camp with it. But it puts off some good heat

Tooooooooo funny

I had to ask, as that is the most important thing to the kids with a fire, cooking marshmallows or hot dogs.

Friends friends parents friends etc etc in BC have a 3' ring of tubing with holes drilled into it and legs welded onto the ring and hooked up to a propane tank. This was because of the fire ban in BC. no burning stuff outside. It was nice and warm, lots of flame, roasted marshmallows, kept warm, and when we were all done all we had to do was turn off the valve for the tank and they went out.

closest pic i can find of it. top right area
