Here's another thread about this:
Coleman stove hookup

I ended up putting a drop-in stove in a frame so it doesn't have to hang on the side rail, but quite often we use it on the side rail table.

There is someone who made their own stove for the outside. I hope I can find it. It was either here or another forum....

Found it. Look through all his pictures, as there are a few pictures of it.

And the Coleman stove puts out far more heat than the old attached stove, so the coffee water boils much faster, which is what is really important here. I think of it more as a fall back in case the small bottles "run dry."

Since I have the outside shower on the A122 (never used as a shower so far), I am looking to mod that a little to use as a hot water dispenser for dish washing/cleanup instead of a kettle on the stove.
I set up a dish washing station by the outside shower using a small folding plastic table. I keep a small bottle of soap and a scrubbie in the shower housing all the time. Post back when you get your mod worked out.

See:

This one looks to be a regular Suburban drop-in stove dropped into some plastic carrier that can connect to the mounting rail. A similar setup could probably be made out of wood or aluminum or whatever material with the same drop-in range cooktop.

There's a lot of information here, thanks!

I think I've decided for the moment to just use my coleman stove with a propane bottle. For just boiling water and cooking things that aren't messy, I'll just use the indoor stove.

I actually wouldn't mind picking up one of those stove/oven combos so I can bake things when away from power!

I came to the same conclusion and use my trusty old Coleman stove with a bottle. But, I keep thinking that someone should come up with a stove that will use our trailer rails and connection. Shouldn't they?

But if they did you wouldn't want to trade up to the camper that has an outside kitchen with stove.

Just picked up the 206 carry out stove. Works great, can be on the rail or on a small table. If you use it on the rail you need to open it first. With My hose extension I can move it up to ten feet from "Shiny" and it sits flat. A big improvement over the Bar B que. My dealer ordered it and I had it about 5 days later. Still had to do that 200 mile round trip but I think it was work it.
