Camp Chef Triton 5L Portable Water Heater

Instant hot water wherever you go! The Camp Chef Triton 5L is our favorite portable water heater for camping, overlanding, vanlife, and other vehicle-based adventures.

Things can get messy when you’re outdoors. Some diehard outdoor enthusiasts seem to wear dirt and grease as a badge of honor. At Trail Kitchens, we prefer to keep things a little more civilized. There’s nothing we love more than cleaning up with a hot Camp Chef shower after a long day of outdoor activities. And while we’re at it, we like using our portable shower to wash off the dogs, gear, and dirty dishes too.

The Triton water heater’s insanely efficient 34,000 BTU burner produces hot water at a rate of 1.5 gal/min. That’s more hot water than any other portable propane water heater in its class. All you need is propane and a water source and you’re ready to go. The Camp Chef Triton easily connects to a hose bib, water storage tank, or portable camping sink. The shower handle has 3 different spray settings, and you can easily adjust the temperature from 80-150 deg F.
