    Fear it, for it will crush little stoves beneath it's massive-ness....is that a word? Haha. Yeah, this thing is wicked cool, works super and is a TANK. This one too will make many a camping trips this summer!!! Check out the pics of my 8r thread coming shortly...I've set the 8r atop this one just to show off it's size! Oh, I found a pic of some 200a's and a little wick-style lamp sittin on it and added that here.

    Great stove :clap: . That is one that you do not see at all. I also love my three burners and look forward to using them this season also. It looks as if you should be able to use a oven on one burner and a skillet on the other two if needed. How do you think it compares to the 426 or 428? Thanks again for sharing it and I look forward to seeing some pics of it running. Just have to love the blue flames!

    dday- I'd imagine it'd run an oven and a dual burner skillet pretty easily. As far as it against a 426 or 428, well, hard to tell. This ones packed way away for now as our Coleman 3 burner is our camping mainstay. As soon as it sees daylight again, I'll make sure to fire'r up for some photos.

    I'd say it's begging for something like this...

    Yeah Ian, griddles are definitely nice for cooking massive amounts of food! We never go camping without ours....although ours isn't a cast-iron one like in your link, it's just a standard non-stick type griddle, but boy howdy I don't know how we made it all those years without one! Being able to do bacon, sausage, hashbrowns and eggs at the same time for four is pretty sweet.....and that's just two of the three burners. I wouldn't mind getting a square cast iron skillet though for when we're camping "light" and only have our two burner, hahaha.

    Hi VD,
    Just wanted to let you know that you gave me the 3 burner PW bug :doh: . One came up the other night on ebay and I couldn't resist after remembering your beautiful Preway. Its not near as nice as yours, but I think I'll like it :) . Photos to follow when it arrives. Take care,
    Dan
