I use this one. It works great. With the 20' hose I had made I can move it a lot of places. My TT quick disconnect is right about in the middle of the TT. Under the awning.

Gas Fire Ring

Okay, some good info which has made me re-think.....I love it that this is the toughest decision I have to make. Camper Bob, I hadn't thought about those fire bans so that's a valid point but I do camp where the only fires allowed is a portable firepit. I had this on my "check out" list:
https://www.volcanogrills.com/ as I could use it as a grill or firepit. (anyone used these?) Then I saw one in Camping World catalog that is a pellet firepit and I had a pellet fireplace insert before so I'm familiar with that. They don't give off sparks but I'll rule that out in case it's not allowed. So okay, you guys have convinced me that carrying a propane 20 lb. cannister isn't all that big a deal so I'm going to start with gas and a cannister and then if I get motivated, maybe I'll try out the conversion to use the camper propane like SW7000 did.

I bungee mine into a milk crate. The crate weighs practically nothing, and does a GREAT job stabilizing the tank for transport. I had a bunch of them laying around from a past life anyway, so they were free too.

My step brother just yanks one of the tanks off the front of his trailer when he wants to use it for something else. We had a large family gathering, and we were using a large propane burner to cook breakfast, he just grabbed one of the cylinders off the front of his trailer and off we went. They're really not that hard to remove; mine are 30 lbs though, so like I said, I just carry a spare 20 lb tank and it's quite convenient.

I know the fitting on the camper to hook to the grill is low pressure and that most of those firepits have high pressure regulators. I can see where people make the modifcations to make those work but I would be uneasy about doing this.

I've done some searching with no results but if anyone knows of a gas firepit that is specifically made to hook to the low pressure camper system, please share that info. I am hoping that some entrepreneur has developed such a product.
Vaneta,

How much you asking for the grille? Could you post a pic?

If you have a longer line made, it will eliminate the regulator on the camp chef portable fire pit. You can then use it on your trailer bottles through the quick disconnect and will be regulated by the TT. The line that comes on the camp chef is only 8'. Too short in my opinion for any real use.

So, after some looking around, I found this one:



The regulator is on the end of the hose, so I'm wondering if it can't be removed and replaced with a propane quick connect to let it hook up to the trailer's propane system, much like we've done with the various Weber grills.

FWIW, here's the link to the item in question in the store. When I have time, I'll go down there and take a look.

I happened to see this on my phone and was at Lowe's and saw one of these. I really like it as it is about the right size. The regulator was covered in bubble wrap and I got a sales person who really couldn't help me and part of that is my fault for not knowing what to ask for. So when you check this out, I will be very interested in what you find. I think I want this one

I'll have time tomorrow to take a look. I'll take a cell phone photo of the regulator and post it here. I'm thinking it should just thread on to the end of the hose, so we can replace it with the Camco quick disconnect. i like the idea of a portable fire pit, but I don't want to haul around another 20 pounds of propane when I already have 60 pounds sitting on the tongue of the trailer.
