My Dad has a kerosene powered Coleman lantern that has to be about 30 years old. It's the kind that uses 2 mantles in it. It's still going strong.

Anyway, I bring a 20# propane tank with me to hook to me Weber BBQ. Is there a lantern I attach to my 20# propane tank. All the ones I have seen attach directly to the top of a 1# bottle.

There's a "tree" you attach to a 30lb tank and the lantern connects to the top of the tree. Then you can connect the stove and BBQ to other connection points of the tree. It can get kinda pricey if you get the whole setup.

Sounds good, but I was planning on keeping the lantern on a picnic table and keeping my grill and tank outside. I guess the extension bar you posed will work if I keep the propane tank and lantern inside my screen tent and then get a longer hose to reach to my grill outside.

That sounds like a very good idea,I have used it both ways with an extension there are a few different types with different openings. They are very handy.

That old Coleman kerosene lantern that may be 30 y/o is more than likely a white gas lantern and some of them can be converted over to propane with an adapter.I know that the old Coleman white gas stoves are adaptable.I have a Coleman lantern that was my parents from when we first started camping in the mid 50's and I still use it.I also had the 2 burner stove from back then and got that from my Mom after Dad died in 1980 and gave it to some friends about '95 and just a year ago they gave it to a young couple just starting to camp and it's still going strong,but on propane now.I think I'm going to give them my lantern so that they can get rid of their 4 cell lantern they have now.

I may have better alt?!? Plus this one doesn't give off large amounts of heat!
I'll go out on a limb here and recomend my newest one. I never thought I would like it, but it was a gift from DW! Turns out its really, really bright and extremely versatile "Coleman LED 4 pac lantern" Its just one lantern. But you can take off each of the 4 smaller parts and use separetly! It uses "D" batts to charge the Li individual batts/units and lasts 75 hours "really Cool!! spendy but really cool!

Have had it about a year now many trips and havent changed batts yet!

Any Camp store, Camping World, Wal-Mart, Meijers (If around) hardware stores, Fishing, Hunting, Outdoor stores, Sears (And thus likely K-Mart) Amazon and E-bay will all have a large assortment of propane lanterns, I have two in the motor home (Different makes)

I also have the "Tree" someone mentioned up-thread,, Got that at Sears more years ago than I care to talk about. (Goes back to my PUP days).

True story: Daughter got to college one morning and turned in her homework, All her classmates were turning in excuses.

Seems the lights went out in Detroit the evening before, I got home from work went out to the camper (A small TT then) grabbed a tub clearly labeled LIGHTS got both a White Gas Coleman Lantern and a couple of propane models, with tanks and came in and, shall we say, Lit up her life for the rest of the evening.

Folks would drive by, See our house all lit up, you'd hear the screech of brakes, a car reversing, THEN they saw the camper and figured it out.


Home is where I park it.

We have the Coleman tree, powers our lantern, table top grill, and camp chef stove. The propane we use is off one of the two tanks up front, we just remove one when we arrive at camp, set up,put away when we are leaving, been doing this for years.
