Need help finding a lantern

I am looking for some ideas for lighting up my camp site around my pop up trailer. I am looking for a free standing propane lantern that can run off of my pop ups propane tank. I have seen the ones that mount on the tank but that wont work for me. I just want to use a splitter at the tank and set up the stand with lantern about 10 ft away from the pop up. Anyone have or seen something that would work?

Coleman sells an adapter hose that connects to the bigger tanks for most of their grills so would think it would probably work w the lantern (both run off the smaller tanks out of the box). No mobility but it should work.

Is this thing on?

How about some LED lanterns. Would hate to see someone trip over a damm fuel hose and pull the lantern on top of them.

That thing is pretty cool I will have to do some more research. The reason I was thinking propane is because I wanted to be able to just utilize the propane tank on the pop up and not worry about extra batteries. The pop up's propane runs the fridge, heater, stove, and soon hot water for the outdoor shower. I figured it would be convenient to worry about one fuel source for all those items.

I have been using the Coleman Max LED lanterns. They collapse for storage and the batteries last for long, long time. A lot safer than gas.

How about this:

http://www.easternmarine.com/3-port-...-lp-hose-59093

Run hose to any disposable cylinder, propane lantern. Maybe tie the hose to the stand with zipties so the hose doesn't dangle.

Another stand option.

I thought there would have been a specific lantern for base camp lighting that threw more light than a typical lantern. Its looking like a tripod, standard propane lantern, and a adapter hose for the bigger tank is the route to go.

what he said.... I've used mine for scout trips and the family trips too. I don't like the idea of fuel lines laying on the ground ready to be tripped over too.

There's something about holding your thumb over that little damn hole and pumping your ass off, then trying not to burn the hell out of your fingers trying to light it that reminds me of how poor we were growing up so for me it keeps the memories around. And if it were about the safety factor I'd keep my nuts in the Ac on the couch.

So far I have just been using my dual fuel lantern attached to my Coleman stove table thing. It has been great and I have recently decided to wire up cheap LED flood lights from harbor freight or something to the pop ups battery for when I absolutely need bright light when turning wrenches or setting up camp. I will continue to use my dual fuel as much as possible though because I prefer the light it gives for general camping purposes.

I use these. I have 4. Two can mount on my camping trailer and two I can mount on my Jeep, in a tree, or on the ground. Plenty of light anywhere, no fuel needed, burn for about 8 hours on charge, and completely mobile.
