I bought my Army son's Dodge Magnum R/T--It's been stored at the ranch for several afghan tours etc.Low miles, Premium sound AND its a Hemi!
Plan is Kathleen and I are going to set it up for touring and visiting friends and family when the crisis is over-- like Clark Griswolds "Wagon Queen Family Cruiser"
I am having trouble deciding on cook stoves, rest area coffee and maybe Trappys chili dogs etc. I want compact and stowable just a small kit for roadside lunches and such. But It still needs to be Cool!
Look over some of my possibles, what do you think?

Take the iron for grilled cheese!!!!!!



Sorry I couldn't resist, I'm trying to figure out the same for my willys cj3b. But mine will need to be period correct and live in the jeep permanently with a lantern and tent.
Honestly for yours the 500 may be the coolest but the newer single may be the most practical.

I have a 421D permanently in the wagon in a 50ltr tote with CI pan, a pot, a kettle and camping dinnerware set just because I have the room and like being always ready🙂
2 burner quickens the meal times by cooking and making coffee at the same time.
I also usually take a single on a trip, stove depends on my mood when I reach for one, but the 500 is fantastic at performance through the heat range and is used heavily.

425 gets my vote.  I use a 425C more than all my other stoves combined.  If you ask me, it's compact, and when you need the second burner, you just light it - no muss, no fuss.

The 500 is cool the 425 NL is more versatile. If having to live with the decision I would go 425

Cool and compact is a #3 KampKook but it does require a preheat which may stretch the nerves for an early morning coffee fix.  My go to stove is still a 425 NL.   Dependable, compact and classic Coleman. That and a 242 and you are good to go.

Kind of this, but if you are willing to "cheat"  you can get the KK Model 3 to have just about instant start by preheating the genny with a Zap Start propane torch.  Linus does that as all his cooking gear is pre WWII, and requires preheat...

Kathleen and I drove 100 miles each way to take my Mom to Costco in Tucson today! She took this photo from I-10 on the south end of the Redington mountains.

Awesome ride! Definitely one of the cooler cars Chrysler made in that time period.

Mike,  besides the stove(s),  you need the "makings" for whatever.  I set this up for camping, but something similar might be worth looking into for your travel setup?

Two sided box  one side has the pantry (and the double doors can act as a wind screen for a stove),

and the other side has a lantern, twp SEVA 123's a fuel station and other parts, and accessories (Spares, funnel stick lighter etc...)
