Browsing the interwebs this morning and I came across a craigslist ad for a group of camping items for $30. Called the guy and within minutes I was on my way.
Here is a picture of the listing.
(Two person Tent, sleeping bag, Coleman two burner stove, rocket stove, cooktop toaster, jerry can, & pots and pans – for $30)
When I arrived he started giving me items, and dropped the price to $20 for all of it. He included, a 2nd tent, a ground tarp to layout around your camp, a Coleman cooler, 4 fordable camp chairs, two camp tables, a picnic basket, a folding cot, I even got a piece of granite, and a portable pet carrier. Didn’t need those for my van build, but I did need them.
Here is a close-up of the camp stove. New old stock, never been used.
Additional research on this unit and I found that it was Manufactured in December 1984, and a Youtube video shows where the red gas canister can be removed altogether and converted to be used with the 1lb propane bottles using a propane converter.
The red gas tank uses White Gas = Camp Fuel, and since I already have a single burner propane stove, I think converting the two burner stove to propane would be the best option for me, as it will save on having to buy two different types of fuel.
The other items included with this sale are equally awesome as the camping stove, and will definitely come in use once I head out for my first trip, and I can’t wait.
