    So my new Flagstaff pop-up camper came with this nice stove but it’s kind of tight with the pans that I bought. I bought some fold up pans from Walmart because they are deep but yet not as wide. I can barely get the two side-by-side. I like the stove because the burners go down to a low simmer.
    Has anybody found some lightweight pans that work good with this type of stove or maybe just one large one to take up both burners?

    Something I've done is to unhook one of the sides on the stove as that can give my pan just a little more room on the burner. The issue with my pans is the side flares out. My 10" cast iron pan fits perfectly, but I can't always use that especially for something I really need to get under to flip. I also don't usually have two pans going at once either. I've boiled water in my percolator and had a pan going but the percolator has a much smaller base. So it doesn't take much room.

    Try some of your home stuff - figure out what sizes work best, and then go search. That was one of my biggest issues with the factory stove - the burners were so close together if I needed to use a larger skillet I couldn't use the other ones. They also tended to blow out easily in the wind, and sucked at boiling water in those conditions as well.

    I have some nesting pots from GSI that worked pretty well, and some anodized aluminum ones from Coghlans that also fit. In the end I got so frustrated with it I cut the hose off and used it to adapt my Coleman Road Trip to the quick disconnect, and use it outside. Then I picked up a Camp Chef Weekender and a quick disconnect hose for it, and never looked back. Way more power than stock, and enough room to use 2 big skillets at once - it is basically an oversized camp stove, smaller than the big burner ones you normally see, and bigger than the typical Coleman camp stove.

    I wanted to like the stock stove also, but as stated, limited power, almost non ajustment of the flame, and it was never level. So doing pankakes and such was a pita. And that was with the old high pressure stove. My TT dosen't have an outside propane hook up, and tbh, im happy about that! I use a Coleman roadtrip ( one side is usally converted for a stove burner , blackstone, and a ellectric burner. Between those 3 i can cook a lot of stuff.

    The last camper I rebuilt and changed out the stove for a blackstone, it worked great. I was hoping someone had pans to fit a stove like this or a nice deep skillet.
    Thanks everyone
