Jobsworth - I just can't fault it for the money.
We've had them for years and years and they've seen a lot of use! The first one doesn't light reliablly after some numpties borrowed it and fiddled with it for no good reason. We tried getting it looked at and adjusted, or buying a replacement piezo lighter, but as the model was no longer available Jetboil just didn't want to know. Still works but you need to bring a lighter in case the piezo spark doesn't catch.All I can say about the clone is that I've not had to test customer service

Well when I had a camper it had a sort of indoor outdoor stove fitted, a Fellows gas twin burner that could be used indoors or swung out the sliding door and locked in place to be used outside the van - of which also produced a better height for cooking on. The cooker unit could also be removed from the ran for even more remote cooking or in my case freeing up space to haul crap to the dump. But cooking without a van fitted cooker, any cooker you like.Just got a part conversion on a Vauxhall Vivaro. No kitchen but most of rest of it done. What would you carry in it for a brew?
When camping we'd just use one of many camping stoves but I was thinking of something stashed for when we stop and want a brew. Or when first pitching up with the van and making the brew while getting straight for the night
I've got the venerable trangia such with the gas conversion makes our dinner and normally brews. We've got various gas, meths and a woodburning stove (honey stove). There's even an esbit stove somewhere. I'm thinking a Kelly Kelly type might be good?
I used to go out with a conservation charity and one branch in Cumbria used a large kettle for team brews from the van. Someone would always get sent back to make the brew while we carried on working. Nothing better than sitting around with a hot brew when you've been working in the wet. It's my only experience of them so never sure they're that practical for a van brew up. Those days we would be working in the countryside with trees and dry twigs close to the van. Usually the person walking back to the van would pick the twigs needed on the way. Easy. It might not be that easy parked up in a layby or carpark by the beach or similar.
I am curious about what people on here might recommend from experience of similar or of the various possibilities.
After reading about it a bit on here I got one of the 1400ml Jobsworth Jetboil type stoves the other day.
Dunno what its like long term but it sure does chuck out some BTUs. Its also cleaner to get fired up than my Svea 123R and more layby friendly than my Kelly Kettle.
