We (wife, 5 year old and me) are planning to go camping next summer (UK). It will be car camping - i.e. drive, set up tent and, knowing the UK, sit in the tent as it rains.
I'm looking at equipment and I would like to know what the advantages and disadvantages are of the various camp stoves that are available.
I'm used to this type of burner, used when I was walking and having to carry all my equipment:-
But, as we're not going to be walking with our gear, weight is not an issue.
What are the (dis)advantages of this type, running off a cylinder of butane:-
Or indeed something like this, running off a regulated large fuel cylinder:-
We'll be camping for a weekend in the first instance, but should be looking to extend to longer trips in the future as we get more confident.
