So I went out and took this picture...

This is all of my blue Coleman and Sears camping gear that will be used in my trailer.

Thanks for the pic Jeremy....brought a smile to my face! I need to find a Sears lantern with a black ventilator that I can spray the tank on to match the Rocketear. I've got a rattle can of the matching metallic silver that hasn't been used up! Is that a newer stand for the stove or an original with the label on the leg? Doug

That is an older aluminum stove/cooler stand. I bought for $10 an broke it the fist time I used. I had to make a few replacement piece & re-rivet it back together. I have my eye on a 2 gallon water jug right now. I still need to make a box for the 502 stove.

About 3" square X 30" long. The oldest ones are green steel, the they were aluminum. The new ones are aluminum & plastic.

I like it because I can put it next to the trailer & have total access to the galley.

Shouldn't you paint your trailer to match? :)
