Subject: Anybody use their pc for camping?

I've seen previous posters mention it - but no details.
Currently I have a 6 qt mirro. But I'm taking an extended road trip next year and I'm thinking a pressure cooker would do the trick.
I'm looking at either a Fagor or Kuhn-Ricon.
But I'm concerned about using a pc on a campstove. Seems like the coleman campstove I have always burns hot - I've never felt like I can drop the heat as much as I would like - I think this might be a problem for using a pressure cooker.

Also I can't decide on size - I would primarily be cooking for one - occasionally two - and because I can't store the food for long. I would at most do enough for two meals.

I'm wondering if the 4 qt is the right size - I'd like to go smaller - I've looked at the 2(?) qt that look like saucepans - but I'm not sure how they would work for soups.

I'd appreciate hearing from people that used a pc while on the road. What size did you use? What kind of stove did you cook on?
Is there anything else I should consider?
