Boling water inside vehicle and ventilation advice
#1
I hike in GB a lot and ski in Scotland using my Berlingo XTR at night. If at all possible I cook outside but that is not very good in poor or cold weather- which I do get in. Although I do have an electric kettle to my leisure battery it is slow. Recently on a six day hike I used my single burner inside with the side door open to boil a kettle for a drink. Is that enough ventilation? Never cooked any thing substantial and not likely too. I note those slide draws with the burner at the rear in some cars; I could make one of those but even under the tailgate it is not comfortable.
Should I be Mr Sensible and be patient or set up at the side door and lean out.

Sorry the title should be Boiling water ,don't seem able to edit the title.

Well, as you're still here to tell the tale I would say yes   Wink

When you boil the kettle on the gas put enough water in to fill a small flask, then when using your electric kettle use the water from the flask in the kettle, even if the water has been in the flask for a good while it will still be hot and will boil much faster than from cold.

Caravans have burners which are used inside for cooking etc and as long as there is ventilation which with a side door open would be enough in my opinion.

The main thing is to have the gas bottle out side with the side door open and one of the window's you don't want a mouldy camper or one with out a roof.

We've always used the flask method when camping as there's nothing worse than waiting for the kettle to boil from cold for your morning cuppa    Wink

For that price no thanks, I'll stick with the flask method.

With my hiking I am a bit of a stove nerd and I have several. I do have the similar Alpkit Brew kit which I keep in the car for brew ups when not on trips. I also have a Trangia stove. I think I need to use a few different stove types to find out what is convenient to suit the weather. I do like the single Camp Bistro burner as it is so quick.

Most Folk prefer the The Camp Bistro Stove as it is Easy and Fast.
