You guys recently steered me the right way about a really good camp stove. This Camp Chef Everest stove is by far the greatest camp stove of my life. It is the best meeting of simplicity, size, convenience and power. It is 3 giant leaps from those old 60s Coleman pump stoves. Here is my Everest in my new CT.

Now please tell me what you think is a really good 12v mini vacuum for cleaner for our trailer. Maybe a rechargeable?
I want something I can take along that will really clean the floor and blankets as needed.

Slow, already knows I agree. One thing on Coleman white gas and cold weather is to have a leather pump cup instead of the neoprene ones. I have seen videos of researchers camping out in the Antarctic and they where using pump up Colemans.

Propane stuff is ok for many people. but when the going gets rough I would rather have a white gas appliance. In a pinch can burn auto gas in them. And I also like the ritual of lighting the things.
