Take a look at the Camp Chef Pro 90 3 Burner Stove. It is the one I use and works great. I bought a few different griddles to use with it and the storage bag that you can carry it around in. I have a quick connect hose kit that I use to hook it up to a propane line on our trailer. I love that thing!

It's a little pricey, but if you look around you might be able to find it cheaper. I have the luxury of having a son that owns a business that carries Camp Chef so I got a very good deal on it and a few other Camp Chef items. They are very well built and will last a long time.

Checked it out, and I can see one those in my near future. May downsize from yours and go with the 60 to save space. Will need to take some measurements of storage compartments.

Sounds Good! I don't think you will be disappointed if you choose to go that route. All their camping stuff is quite nice. Good luck...

My two recliner chairs, a couple of cozies to keep the beer cold and my Coleman Roadtrip grill. Easy to move about, love the cast iron grates and griddle top and is a miser on the Coleman small 1lb. propane bottles, so much so see no need for a bigger bottle or the adapter that you can buy to fill the bottles off of your rigs propane tank.

Weber Q120, and a portable ice making machine ...
poor ice machine has been through sun/dirt/rain .. and still keeps on running. We only bring it on longer trips ... 5 days plus ... but have found that this thing is probably the best investment so far .. outside of the Q120.
No silly trips to the store for cooler ice .. and it just constantly just trugges along ... needing the odd fillup and offload ...

Satisfying for sure. I have to include in that my chainsaw. I want logs that are ready to be split.

I was checking in with a National Forest office as to any specific rules pertaining to gathering wood in that area and was told "why dont you just buy some firewood". I nearly swallowed my tongue and had to cover my ears.

Hilarious! My background is PA state parks- if it's down, you're allowed to collect and burn it. It was quite a shock to go to private campgrounds and be expected to buy wood there (or if local enough, sneak it it).

Wish MN State Parks were so tolerant of down and dead wood as they are in PA. Doesnt work that way here. You are not allowed to gather up firewood in State Parks. You are in State Forests but they are managed by the State Parks and I've had workers attempt to shut me down using State Park rules. They are only able to show State Park rules but I am well versed in State Forest rules. National Forests generally are more tolerant of gathering up firewood but Park staff in MN were the ones that tried to dissuade me from gathering and wondered why I didnt just buy wood. I was told by one staff worker that I had better not "fill my truck" or they will shut me down. I let them know that I didnt have a big truck and I was only staying for three nights at the campground! I'm not aware of private campground rules in MN as I dont stay at any. I stay at National Forest campgrounds frequently in Wyoming and they are the absolute best when it comes to gathering up dead and down wood.

When you say background...do you mean you worked for the State Parks...or do you mean you generally camp at State Parks?
