Hittenstiehl, FYI, there is a new cap/plug with a whistle incorporated available on the Irish web site. Guess it will be on the US site before long. Not sure if it is really needed but I have always liked whistling kettles.

Pharma,
That looks really cool. How big is it?

I also like your banner. How did you attach it? (I keep hitting my head on the awning arm)

It's just a towel - I always hang something on both sides as hitting your head becomes inevitable...I've seen others use a pool noodle cut with a slit to allow easy attachment.

The fire pit is 19.5 inches wide and 14 inches tall...weight like maybe 20 lbs - not "light" but easy enough to move

It produced remarkably little smoke which my wife who is sensitive to smoke gave it a thumbs up tonight.

It produces a most unique burn with secondary combustion of "wood gas" with the design.

Thanks. I think I may need to get a banner or red/white/blue festoon or something for our awning.

My husband figured out why it's happening. On our 22, the door was at the back. So as you exited the trailer to get something from the truck, the awing arm wasn't Right There.

But the 25 rear bed we just got has the door in the front, so as you exit the door to go to the truck, you have to Look for the awning.

I dropped my 28 FC into service to get a new hinge and shower door hinge, and I walked out later with a new 27 27 FB International! How's that for an upgrade!

Pham, Love the idea of a small fire pit that doesn't produce a ton of smoke! But you sure pay for that fire pit $300! Would love to hear how this works out.

It felt like the most frivolous purchase I've made in a loooong while. It was for my b-day and I splurged.

I'll be using it every night this week - I'll post my end of week review - so far it is positive.

Please be sure to report results of the smores test. Can it roast a marshmallow to perfection?

Please do post a review. Ads for it pop up all the time lately and I'm curious about it for sure! I'm curious about some reviews that say the inside and the lower grate (which isn't replaceable?) starts rusting within a few days.

I'll chime in here again

Not much to really review. Easy to start a fire in it as it is sheltered but ventilated. It burns cleanly. Looks nice. Come with a nice draw string bag so you don't get ash all over your trailer. To clean it, just turn it upside down and shake out the ash. Over time the color changes to a rose gold color, that adds character. Best fire pit I have ever had.

We use ours at home and in the trailer, highly recommended.

Harrumph. Still no answer to the all-important marshmallow-roasting question. Will the Solostove allow you to roast them nicely, or will it reduce them to a combination of cinders and molten goo before you can blink? Enquiring minds want to know!
