I really like this stove. I have a two burner, but it does not have the housing. If the wind is right the flames would go out on lower heat. With the housing on the Ranger II, I had no problem with wind. The stove type knobs offer easy flame control and lighting. Light weight enough for transport, and durable. With its durability and light weight you can cook just about anywhere. On a past hunting trip I used it to cooked eggs, bacon and coffee off the tailgate of my truck. Only thing is missing is a handle so it can easily be carried with one hand, allowing you to carry the propane in the other.
My other two burner from Camp Chef does not have the housing. Had to keep an eye on it so on low the flame wouldn't go out. I loved it. But after getting the Ranger II I take it instead unless I'm going with a bigger group and need two stoves.
With the ignitor, my boys are able to get the stove going in the am to start the water for hot coco and coffee. Just can't be any easier.
Highly recommend the Ranger II stove from Camp Chef. Another of their durable effective products. (Posted on January 6, 2016)

I had been looking for something to use with my camper "quick connect" propane system. We like cooking and heating food outside the camper.
My first thought when seeing this advertised was, "Dang....that is an expensive two burner stove." Then I bought TWO other pieces of junk. Neither worked, one arrived broken. For what I paid for those two pieces of junk, I could have gotten this in the first place.
The stove arrived quickly after I placed the order and we took it out that weekend for a quick camping trip. My initial impression is that this is a quality piece. Heavy, well built and so far, it works flawlessly. I also purchased the camp chef propane house for use with our quick connect. It also works perfectly with the stove.
This is exactly what I was looking for and I look forward to using it for many years to come.
