We were told ahead of time that ours would come with only three tanks, but that we could add the fourth. The excuse given was FEDERAL transportation regulations prohibited it from shipping with 4 tanks.
HOWEVER...upon arrival, it's got two tanks on a slide-out on the door (passenger's) side and only one in a fixed position...with no room for another on the back side.
I was disappointed in not having that extra 20 pounds, but...it's still equivalent to two BIG, HEAVY and HARD TO HANDLE bottles in a easier-to-handle arrangement.
The stove does have an auto-spark to light on the burners, the oven requires lighting a pilot. But the one time we've been out it was a breeze to light (unlike our Sandpiper).
