You would think that you can just remove the fire pit regulator and connect into the TT low pressure connection.

If that's the case, have a propane shop make you a high pressure hose that you connect directly to the tank, then to the regulator on the campfire.
Camco do a device to port off the high pressure before the regulator.

So I have come full circle and am also looking at the Little Red Campfire. Maybe that is the easiest and lightest way to go?

I wanted to see how the Little/Big Red Campfire are working out for everyone. With the season long fire bans around us it would be nice to have a propane fire pit, and these look to be the most portable. I don't want to deal with rocks and think I'd prefer the formed logs, seems they are more oriented to be truly portable.

The Big/Little are the same BTU, just a larger packaging and "logs". Has anyone used the cook-top accessory? Definitely wouldn't be the most efficient way to cook, but if you have the fire pit running anyway it is more than 100% efficient

Also, is everyone just carrying a dedicated propane cylinder to run their fire pits? I don't love the idea of carrying a free roaming cylinder in the trailer (and no option in our TV), but I like it more than (wood eating) insect/spider infested firewood being in the trailer.

We really liked the Fire In A Can unit after a fellow traveler shared his with our group on a Wyoming caravan. When the fire closures hit (we are in Oregon, too) we bought a Bond "Aurora" Fire Pit at Safeway, of all places, for $79.99. A visually identical unit made by Bond sells at Home Depot for $119.99.

It works well, but uses chunks of pumice instead of "logs". The lid captures the pumice chunks during transport, and we carry the fire pit inside a large trash bag to reduce the pumice dust mess.

We do carry an extra 7 gallon propane cylinder rather than plumbing in an outlet on the trailer's propane lines. The extra cylinder allows us peace of mind about our propane supply and the portable tank allows us to spot the fire pit anywhere we want.

We carry the extra cylinder in the pick up bed. We added two tie downs to secure it. Takes less space and way less messy than carrying fire wood.

Now that its getting colder we'll really test it out!!

I have a Volcano grill which can also burn wood my question has any one found a way to use the propane burner as a source for a “fire pit”
