I'm pretty sure it's Operator Error, but just in case I'm asking for help.  I renovated the utility trailer I had that used to be a Venture popup camper but was just four short walls on a frame when I got it.  The walls more or less collapsed from exposure to the weather, so I stripped it down to the frame and wire-wheeled the rust off, and painted it with rust reformer and primer.  No problem there.  I rebuilt a nice sturdy frame with 2x3s and clad it on the outside in a temporary way with…See More

"I've found a few such places, too.  So far I've still had no luck finding the fix for this loittle stove.  No rush, I'll just keep looking."

"Looks like the adapter/hook up is attached via a flare fitting. So, I'd look for a new bottle fitting that has a provision for that flare fitting. Looks like a 3/16" line with a 3/8" flare nut. Been browsing the interwebs but…"

Looking for advice on transforming truck camper...

...into a small trailer. 

I'm selling my truck and buying a van, so I don't need the two camper projects I've gathered.  I only have one set of jacks, so if I get rid of the '68 Frolic, and keep the (approx) '70 Real-Lite, I was thinking of cutting off the cab-over bunk, and slicing off the two feet at the back that currently has no floor and fixing it up and attaching ti to a trailer frame.
