Due to problems getting my trailer onto my drive (ie rubbing on high spots on the drive) I had my starcraft 3612 raised by 4". I took it in to the garage that usually services my vehicles.
 They researched what was entailed in lifting a trailer with torsion bar suspension and the end result was a t…

We never cooked in our first popup which we purchased new and when we were shopping for our current used popup one that had been cooked in was a complete non starter for me. The smell is the bloody worst like a short order kitchen once they have been cooked in. The smells seep into all the fabrics and the Lord help you if you fry fish inside.

+1 on the low pressure stove being worthless outside unless the weather is very nice and no wind. The Coleman or other good camp stove is you friend.

I considered trying to convert the low pressure stove in my Coleman to high pressure then using it only outside. The down fall with that program is thing mounts on the outer door so to lock the camper I would have to take the stove down every time. My Coleman came with a counter that replaces the stove when the stove is outside but in my case the counter piece is were the stove goes all the time and the stove is neatly wrapped tucked away in storage.

I hang the stove on the outside whether I'm going to use it or not. Frees up room inside and with its lid closed makes a handy shelf outside for setting stuff.

Ok i think i will give it a try hooked on the outside. We are going on our first PUP trip close to home next weekend. Thanks for all the information. I love this site [:D] [:D]

FYI, it you haven't ever used it outside, it might take a bit longer to purge the gas lines of any air before the gas actually gets to the stove.

We never make more than Coffee inside the pup [8D] all cooking is either out doors or we eat at a restaurant.

We are often camped where going to a restaurant is not possible or likely, sometimes the nearest is at least half an hour away. We are careful what we cook inside, so there is not an issue like jwoodyu mentioned. [Our usually camp cooking is pretty simple to begin with, inside we do the simplest.] Since we don't have an outside stove, I don't know if there would be an issue with that side of the tenting absorbing odors. When we cooked near the camper, we were at a 90* angle and the breeze dissipated cooking vapors fast.

Since on the topic of inside/outside stove...Is there any online store we can purchase the low pressure quick connect stoves? Our Flagstaff came with the RVQ which is installed way too close to the unit allowing for grill smoke to enter the trailer if the screens are open. I bought a small propane grill I can position well away from the unit.
Would love to snag a stove for the outside as ours is built-in inside and never use it...or paying top dollar at a dealer the only option?

I know the dealers charge ridiculous prices for new stoves, so it's definitely worth looking around. Check Kijiji or Craigslist for used RV stoves.

Alternatively, since you say you don't use the stove inside, you can fab up an angle iron or aluminum angle frame and/or add some carriage bolts or a table mount track that will allow you to mount the stove to the exterior wall. Then replace the counter top inside so you can take advantage of the extra counter space.

I stand corrected. I used the stove outside  on my 96 Coleman for the first time this weekend and it rocked. Either the guy before me worked on it to make it better or it just smokes my old Palomino.

Even though we have a nice stove & oven inside the pup like this, it rarely gets used:




If I use a stove at all it is usually the built in outside high pressure one:





But even that hardly gets used as most of our cooking is done over charcoal on the campsite grill or over a fire in the fire pit.

I have the inside/outside 3 burner and I don't use it inside.  I actually bought an 8 foot extension for the quick connect propane on the outside of the camper and I set the stove on a rectanglular table set up at 90 degrees to the trailer and this gives me the prep space I need and counter space inside.  On the outside of my camper it was actually to high for me and this works better.  I have a popup canopy for over my cooking area and it works for me.  I know everyone does things different so it's just what I do.

We have always mounted our stove on the outside for many of the reasons listed here.  Our Palomino trailer also came with a little shelf to mount beside it, and that gives you more space to put condiments etc.  We don't use it for cooking anything that will give off food odors, but for boiling water, or heating soup, it works just fine.

Our previous PU had an inside/outside stove and I really liked it.  The PU we have now only a stove installed into a counter top.  I used it a couple of times last year when we were on a trip, spending some "one nighters" on the road and didn't want to unload all the cooking gear until we got to a multiple night CG.  But I haven't used it at all this year.  I cook outside using a cookstove, a grill, and/or the Dutch Oven.
