How much fuel do these burn? Pounds per hour, etc.?
A full 20lb propane tank will generally last me 8 hours if I run the fire pit on high. I've not bothered timing it on lower settings as I vary it up and down pretty regularly during use.

Can you use the low pressure port on the RVs propane?
Yes. I've purchased an extra long hose, proper brass quick connect fittings, and a brass fitting that attaches the hose to the plastic connector on the side of the fire pit. You obviously can't use the original hose that has the regulator. It works well.

It is nice well built unit and I'm sure you will like it. Now I'm on the lookout for a throw away bbq grill so I can savage the igniter. I'm not cheap in just frugal.😁😁 ok, I'm cheap.

We also have the Little Red Campfire by Camco; had it 3yrs. Only about 14" Outside Diameter and use 1# bottles that we carry for outside grilling any way. Burn about 1.5 hrs on medium flame. Great in the AM to warm to w/o building a fire for a short burn. We camp in NM Mtns. and many camps are NO Burn... We Love it.

When I saw this post, I put the firepit in my Amazon cart as I was still thinking about storing the propane in the coach. It seemed like every time I looked at my cart the price got lower.

Today at $89.99 I ordered it. Thank you Neal!

I used our Outland Firebowl the other day at our home base (RV port house). It was fun setting around the "campfire" talking with the kids (20+ year olds). Neal, I also got me one of the 11 lb propane talks based on your recommendation - and I love it. Ace Hardware has them, but they are hard to find - I had to order mine, but got it in two days. At $59 they are not cheap, but a great size.

I saw one of those at an RV park last summer but didn't know the name of it. I'm going to have to look into it in case we run into more burning bans like we had last summer in CO. We already have multiple outdoor propane appliances.

For those wondering how to stow propane bottles, I always carry two propane bottles secured in back of the F150. You could just as easily carry them in any tow vehicle, jeep, SUV, or car. I use my F150 like a toy hauler and it can carry a lot of things that do not stow well in the RV.

Kudos all goes back to ARD (Renee) as she is the one the fired it up while we were both at Mountain Falls RV Resort so I ordered one for myself and the dog. I did see they went on sale at Amazon Land today so if interested dive on it and don't check prices next week!

I would like to get one of these. When I do I will hook it up to the 12' hose that came with the Extend-A-Stay I have already installed on my 40 gallon ASME tank in my coach.
I can't safely carry a portable DOT propane cylinder in any of my basement compartments. Experts say they must be stored in a vented compartment away from any ignition source (whether heat or electrical.) They must always be stored and used upright so vapor instead of LPG will be vented by the built-in safety features if the cylinder becomes overheated, especially if it has been over filled.
Those factors prevent me from storing a propane cylinder near my generator, fuse panels, inverter, batteries, transfer switch and engine exhaust.
The best I can do is store one upright in the back of our toad with the rear windows cracked open when it is on the dolly and remove it when someone drives it.

Propane Fire Pit - Outland Firebowl

So which one has the built in igniter? The deluxe or the premium??? I cant decipher from the info provided on amazon. They are both currently the same price.

Looks like the model 870. As per Amazon:

✓ COMPACT AND EASY TO TRANSPORT: Travel size fire pit is lightweight and portable; easily set up in minutes with no tools required. Matchless auto-ignition feature ensures a fast and simple start-up; all weather fire bowl delivers a clean and smokeless flame with cozy warmth and beautiful evening ambiance. Measures L 19 x W 19 x H 11 with total output of 58,000 BTU/HR.

The larger 24" version was more important for me than the igniter.

Price went back up to $169 for the 24" and $146 for the 19". Amazon sure varies their prices these days.

I bought the 19" because they were both 58,000 btu and we will have to remove something from the basement for it to fit in our coach.
