well I can tell you I didn't order one on our camper but the one we got came with it standard ... I guess year change from option to standard? I do use it for cooking breakfast, baking potatoes while the steaks cook on the charcoal grill, warming up beans or something else in a pot for dinner so I like it for those things. Baking potatoes is nice so we don't heat up the inside of the camper with oven but they can be done on the fire too so its a personal call

I have a camp stove and use a little 10lb bottle that fits just inside the storage area at the front.
That is good enough.

Ours has the rack for a grill/stove and the gas outlet but didn't come with one, I just wanted to make use of the gas connection for those things I don't want to cook on the grill.

I have a new side kick style grill that came with my jayco I would make you a good deal on if you're interested. It's new in the box and works off the camper propane system. Pm me if you are.

This is what the dlr charges lots more for. For less than $150 you can get a stainless, twin burner.

I have a two burner camp chef stove and love it. It is very versatile, stores easily in a canvas bag in my exterior storage compartment and hooks to the TT low pressure propane system so no need to worry about additional fuel. I also have the cast iron skillet (highly recommended) so you can use one burner as a griddle while using the other burner for pots/pans etc. Makes a kick-a$$ bacon and egg breakfast! This past year we also make pork fried rice, fajitas, steak & cheese subs, plus burgers and dogs and all the other standard camp fare.

I'm pretty sure Coleman has something but I don't know which model(s) it would be and there may be other options I don't know about. Any recommendations?

Yes, I know, I should be satisfied with what I already have but.... it's all your fault anyhow, reading about all you guys cooking outside has made me realize how much more fun that'd be, plus saving the cooking odors from inside the 5er.
I have been doing this for the past few years for a couple reasons.
1. keep the cooking odor and spatter out of the TT
2. not have to buy the 1 lb cylinders
I did change over the propane regulator to a change over style to be able to isolate the tanks.
Be aware if your trailer is plumbed for quick disconnect system, your propane is already regulated down to 11.5" WC and for instance a Weber Q series or Coleman stove will perform differently than connected directly to one of your 30lb cyls. It doesn't like to be overregulated. Who does!
The Coleman stoves can be had with piezo ign and it would've been handy, but pricy. Biggest complaint about the coleman is it is very touchy to regulate the flame down enough to keep from incinerating things. I've already had to replace the pop rivets on the lid. Get a cheapo table or two from Walmart to cook on, carry 3 wedges, and a level of some kind to level out the table unless you want to chase your eggs and pancakes around the griddle. The program works for us

Forgot to mention that I use a small electric griddle for most breakfasts. It's the PERFECT size for 2 or 3 people, and I can use it wherever I want because I have an extension cord for my awning lights. ALL of the cooking appliances I use are ultra portable and have at least one failover safety.

Funny story about that griddle, I actually "borrowed" it from the outlaws. A while later, they said we could keep it because they were getting a new one. A few years later they asked for it back so they could put it in their MH, I said "No way, it's going in my TT!" Then I got a big one for Christmas 2 years ago to use at home. We use them both so much I'm surprised they haven't worn out.

Is there any specific Coleman stove you recommend, Jeff61?

I like that electric griddle idea, Camper_bob, I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
