Coleman 295 Lantern

blogEntryThumbnailI have owned a Coleman 295 Powerhouse Unleaded Lantern for many years. Mine was made in October 1992, 21 years old; all Coleman's have the date stamped on the bottom. I bought the lantern from a fisherman and used it occasionally on campsites, at motorcycle shows & in my T4 camper van.

As I have been sorting out my gear for our year living off the grid, I came across the Coleman, still in the original box & looking in great condition. At first I thought I would clean it up a bit and sell it but I have now decided to keep it as a standby light & heat source.
