Yes, fully agree, I only have the one tow vehicle so not as much of an issue for me.
One of my planned mods is a storage box though. The box that Escape has is really nice but a tad pricey. For the interim, I am thinking of picking up an "Action Packer" cargo box (Canadian Tire) or something similar and mounting it on the front of the trailer. Whatever I do, and even if it is just for the interim, it still has to look good.

I have a Dickinson Spitfire 180 grill which I connect to the low pressure quick connect on my Escape 21. I am looking to purchase a Camp Chef Ranger II to use as well. If I install a tee on the low pressure line on the Escape, would there be sufficient gas flow to operate both the Dickinson Spitfire 180 and the Camp Chef Ranger II at the same time?

I posed this scenario to Reace a while ago, and he said it should be just fine

Wow, it has been quite a while since anyone posted in this thread, and since then there sure seems to be a lot of happy Ranger II users out there, myself included.

We love using this stove. You can boil water fast, yet cook at a super low simmer. The 3 rings of flame ensure good coverage across the entire pot/pan surface. It works good with moderate winds, as the flame seems to be unaffected by them. Not sure about high winds as we have not had them yet, and might be cooking inside then anyway.

It is great that it connects easily to the trailer LP QC, a very convenient thing.

What container are you using. I am using a clear Rubbermaid container that is just a smidgen too small. It fits side to side, but I have to pull the knobs off every time to store. Curious what others are using too.

I had considered making a tough fabric bag, but worry about the knobs that protrude, and the feet would wear on it while stored rather quickly. I think the feet design is about the only weakness of the stove, and wish they had of used something flat.

someone on the forum posted about the sterilite modular stackers, the 10 gallon/38L one fits perfectly.. and went in the 19' rear hatch fine too.

Yes. You could just attach to the 3/8" flare fitting with the hose supplied from Escape and it will work just fine. I did add a quick connect fitting to the stove and to the end of the hose to quickly attach and to use for my BBQ or fire pit too, which all have a quick connect fitting on them.

I used one of these 90° fittings as the one on the stove aims straight out the side. This allowed me to point it rearward.

I also bought one of these splitters so I can run to appliances at once.

I bought a couple short male pigtails, a short hose, and another longer hose from these guys.

Jim, where do you store the stove for travel?
