I would say no one uses those for camping.

Most tenters, if no electricity, would use propane from small bottles or, if they are die hard campers, Coleman Fuel with some sort of single or two burner stove.

And then some get one of these.
Not true.... we use emergency stoves all the time when backpack camping when we have to carry everything in. It is much more lightweight than carrying a bottle of fuel. Of course, a fueled camp stove is better, and that is our prefered method when family camping....but if space is a huge issue.... this is the way to go. If heating a large container... use more than one tablet. But... if you have electricity... an electric pot is a God send!!

My only suggestion to you (if you are cold natured) would be to insulate yourself from the air mattress. We have tent camped at WDW in October and we use air mattresses... however, the air in the mattresses will take on the air temp (of course) and your body heat is not enough to heat it. Some evening temps can get cool (atleast to me they are cool) I have tried mattress pads... etc... depending on the temps, but laying on a sleeping bag, with a sheet over it works best, in my opinion. My husband loves tent camping in the mountains in the late fall to early winter, freezing rain....... in the tent... even with a camping heater...it's cold. I've gotten lots of practice hahahaha...
