Lets talk camp heaters..

Any one use theses? Since we live in Arizona we like to camp in the winter also.. But don't want to be inside all the time when it's cold. Any suggestions?

Maybe a little ceramic heater. Shouldn't take much to heat the camper in your avitar.

Was looking for something to be able to sit outside and cook, read, that sort of thing.

A propane chiminea? Unless those are illegal, then maybe a blanket and a picture of a fire. We have a chimenea, and it puts out respectable heat. A little big to drag camping, but we don't have fire restrictions generally.

You often see the big patio heaters at outside restaurants and bars. Lowes carries a tabletop version of that heater, that uses those 1-lb green propane bottles.

We also like our Camco Little Red Campfire propane campfire. We bought ours on Amazon, but it is also available at Camping world and probably other places. Buy the adaptor that permits you to hook it to a 20# propane tank. It puts out a decent amount of heat. They also sell a small grill that sits above the fire. While they say it is for making coffee, I don't see why you couldn't use a frying pan over the fire...might take a while, though.

Good luck!
