Winter camping seems to be on the increase these days which I think is a good thing. My last boondock camping trip before the snow started flying this past season the high temps were in the low 30's and the lows were in the teens. I just made sure my propane tanks were full,plenty of gas for the generator and plenty of wood for the fire.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

We use the COLEMAN ROADTRIP which comes in very handy two wheel tote. Packs up great and the tote has pockets for all the accessories...

We still use the 1LB propane canister which work great and adds to our back-up propane canisters on hand to run our emergency heat needed when using the MR BUDDY heater when camping off the power grids..

My trailers both came with the outside grills and they were given away along time ago - never opened them up. I was not all that excited of have the grill setup on the side of the trailer. I am sure they are all safe and all but we feel it is much better to have the grill a few feet away from the trailer wall.

One of these days I will make up a nice small table to use where the wall mounted grille attached to the trailer.

I got my my present COLEMAN ROADTRIP back in 2008 - Easy to clean up with the water tray in the bottom to catch all of the greese drippings. The different GRILLs you are using hoses down real quick when you are done using them.
