Has anyone tried to connect one to a one pound canister? If so did you use a pressure regulator?

Yes you would need a regulator, no I haven't tried to connect one to a one pound cylinder, however I have a couple of LP gas camping lanterns.

We love ours! We do not use it in the Summer but during the other three seasons it gets used a great deal. I encourage you to put one in...

How do you keep the mantles from falling apart when travelling? It seems like they are so fragile after they are lit that they would fall apart after a few miles of trailering. Do you need to replace every time?

You don't.....

Zip-tied a bag around it, and replaced it as needed.

We put one in every trailer we have. Nice light and perfect for taking the chill off on cool evenings plus no power used.
We have had mantles last an entire season and many thousands of miles.
Many broken mantles could be a sign of other problems like wheel balance or alignment.

Everything camping is on sale right now, up here in the Northern Hemisphere. I looked at some lovely Coleman gas lights last night, but kids... there's just too much potential for burns.

we tell our kids "don't touch, it will burn you" and they don't. The stove is a lot closer than an overhead gas light. So far they haven't burned themselves on the stove. I would hate to get rid of the stove out of fear they might burn themselves.

And if they don't listen, they'll likely only touch it once.

I have no kids and don't plan to ever have kids so that's not a concern at all. And my Bassett of chihuahua certain won't be able to reach it

I guarantee they won't touch it but once...

If the light is mounted where it is supposed to be it will be high enough that it would take an older 8+ year old to reach it. If they haven't learned not to touch things by then you have other issues to deal with.

FWIW when I was growing up my grandparents had oil lamps, didn't get electric in the house until I was almost in high school. Even as a toddler I knew not to touch... got my hands slapped more than once. They also had a big wood cookstove that you wouldn't want to touch either in the wintertime.

I was talking about a freestanding Coleman lantern, should have perhaps made that clearer.

An installed one, no worries.

Same rule applies. My brothers and I grew up around Coleman lanterns camping with my parents. None of us had any inclination to touch the lantern (or the gas stove, or the camp fire, etc).
