camp chef

Looks like a great little stove but it is $218 on amazon.ca. And the amazon.com vendors won't ship to Canada.

Console yourself that you don't have to lug around a large, heavy stove.

Ok I am going to ask (yet another) (dumb) question.

The quick connect fitting the gas comes out of. On the escape (optional) QC.

Male or female?

I would guess female from the pics. But can't be sure.

Thanks.

Is there a lighter option that will plug directly into the escape LP exterior propane system like this will? Would love to hear about it.

I donno. Just read some reviews when looking to see what was being talked about.
I use a BBQ and one or two butane stoves. ( and, of course there are three propane burners in the trailer ).

It is not much heavier or larger than a Coleman, and built WAY better.

REI will ship to Canada, and it is cheaper there.

I haven't noticed any issues with size or weight with this stove. All I've noticed is how much better it operates than others I've had and it will truly simmer. The shape is also conducive to finding a perfectly sized Rubbermaid bin to store it in for travel.

I found Sterilite Stacker Totes at WM. The 10 Gal size handles the Camp Chef and stores
underneath the bed in our 21. I got another 10, some 4's and a 19 to store things stacked in the back of the pickup.

The link here is for multiples, but you can mix and match individually though it requires a trip to WM:
