    No it doesn’t come with a grate but you can find a grate at Waly World or  Cabela’s for a few bucks. Here’s one I just found online that’s available at target  through eBay for 80 bucks  and the legs folds down to make it even more portable.

    The one we have is a propane fire pit  which produces no sparks or embers, this is why we can use it during a burn ban. The one you were looking at is a wood  fueled fire pit and would not be allowed to be used during a burn ban at least up here in Manitoba Canada.

    This is the one that we have :

    Thanks guys

    Ray they are Outland portable fire pits. Costco had them on for 90 bucks last week. Most places they’re $130 to $160. There was a fire ban on this past weekend so no open fires but these are allowed and you can still roast marshmallows over it!

    We took our new rig out to the local KOA this weekend with our friends and their brand spanking new 33′ travel trailer for  the inaugural shack down cruises of the two units. All went well, everything worked and no surprises. Our new second hand 26′ rig with a slideout is unbelievably more comfortable then our old 19′ one. The whether was nice and sunny and warm on Friday and Saturday, we sat out by the fire until  wee hours of the morning enjoying toasting marshmallows and then dipping them into Bailey’s Irish creame, A must try recipe! Sunday  morning we woke up to temperatures one degree above freezing, heavy rain and strong north wind. Also the frost was starting to come out with the rain over night and the Fifthwheel had sunk halfway to the  axles in the soft ground. But  no worries, this new fifthwheel is such a joy to pack away and hook up!! It only took me five minutes to get hooked up and a good tug from Big Red, our truck, and we were on the road headed home.

    Here’s a couple of photos.

    Thanks guys for the kind words.

    The wife and I are taking the new rig out for its  shakedown cruise this weekend. The ground is still frozen solid up here so no sewer and water, just electric service available. Shouldn’t be a big deal as this rig has a 55gl fresh water tank, we camped for 5 days in the old 19″ rig and it only had a 18gl tank. We’re going with another couple who just bought a brand new 33′ Hideout travel trailer so  there will be a couple of christening ceremonies going on this weekend.

    Our newer rig.

    Its a 1993 26′ Wilderness 25P5 in excellent shap, we just replaced the carpet with vinyl plank flooring just to freshen it up and make it easier to clean. It’s got a lot more room then the old 19′!

    That sounds like a “makeup drink” to me!
    After a disagreement with the misses give her a couple of these and she’ll agree to any thing.;)

    We got one of theses Camp Chef two burner stoves from Cabelas and love it. We got the BBQ box and the iron griddle so the stove does triple duty and folds down into a manageable size that takes up less room than a barbecue and a stove. With one of those wood chip boxes in the BBQ box it would turn it into a smoker. I used it at a pancake breakfast last summer with two griddles on it and cooked pancakes and sausages serving over 100 people in an hour and a half with no problem. I love this thing, don’t leave home without it. 😉

    Nice I love these vintage rigs! I brother in-law had one of these ten years ago and we had a great time in it for 8 years, until a tree fall on it in a storm.

    If you don’t mind me asking, ball park what kind of money would we be looking at for a truck like that? The wife and I are “full timers” that are still working full time to earn enought to get the rig we want to full time RV in. I’m thinking this mite be it!
