5A near Quebec City

This looks like a 5a I think! I don't see many of those. Too bad it is so far away. Anyone near Quebec City, this looks good for 30$. I think I have enough stoves 🥺

That is a nice stove. It’s being sold with two tanks? The one on the left looks brand new! Unless it was painted.

I thought that was strange too. There is no description in the ad, unfortunately. Looks like one might be he correct one (longer).

Pretty sure the two tanks are the same length?
They seem to look small on three burners.

Thank you!

You might be right, Kevin. Looking at the slots on the front, I am not sure either of them would fit without extending the slots. Probably neither is the original tank.

Interesting, I always thought the 5A had a short tank. Big book confirms that but maybe it’s incorrect. Assumed a 5B had the same but it appears it has the larger tank.

Thank you!

The book is probably right. I just assumed that the 5a and b had the same sized tank. I thought the colour was the only difference.

Some forum members have both. Maybe they can chime in?

And then there is the 5A/B...mid production I assume.

Ed, that one has the same tank as mine. Looks like Coleman had some extra chassis to get rid of at 5b time. Strange that the 5a had a short tank.
