Oh, and we don't like the idea of hanging s grill off of the trailer due to safety concerns.

I share your concern, however we have used ours several times to grill steaks at the end of the day. A few times have used it when hooked to the camper but they put out alot of heat. I opted for an extension LP hose and set the grill on a picnic table. Makes great steaks too.

We'll see. I see real benefit in doing the cooking outside. It's snowing today and checking out that grill will wait. Lol!

Yes, agree nothing quite a good a outdoor grilled food.

We got snow again late yesterday/last night and 16 degrees this morning. Sun is out now and melting a bit.

And last Saturday, it was 68 degrees that really cut down the snow fast.

That time of year with wide temperature changes and weather changes....is how it is when living above the 45th parallel.

LOL

I use mine, on every trip. Works great at the lowest heat, and the bracket holds it a ways from the trailer.

Well we finally were able to do some things to the RV. We took the grill out of the storage bag and immediately decided that it should either go in a yard sale or the dump. The outside looked like it had been dipped on a vat of grease and then baked and the inside was even worse. Someone had obviously never bothered to clean it. We will be looking for a small inexpensive gas grill to replace it with but will retain the trailer bracket to use as a side table. Oh, the storage bag is in pristine condition.

Well, a table is always welcome. The propane hookup could be used with an extension to a lantern or a heater or gas fire pit

Yes, it will make a nice side work table stand. We can use the gas connection and hose for our next grill. May need a fitting to convert it. I saw your grill in your picture. Looked nice and handy.

We use a converted Weber Q. I still have the one that came with our XT 276, the Q blows it away.

We just received this little grill today. Will give a review when we get a chance to use it. The small size should work fine for us and anyone else we have as guests. And it will take up less room in storage. I also like that it has legs so it can be used boondocking where there is no table.

Yes, it does. Though we also decided to use their 4' hose because it will connect to our outside propane connection. The one that came with the old girl would need an adaptor. So we'll just give to whomever wants the old grill.

Good that you can connect to your outside propane connection as heard those little bottles don't last long and get expensive to keep buying.

I hope you get many delicious meals off the new grill.

Thanks Eagle. I think we will like it. We have 5 short trips planned. Reservations at 4. One place is total boondocking on the tip of the leelenau peninsula, the others all have at least electric. One has full hook ups. Two are Lake Michigan shore sites. All are midweek to avoid the crowds.

You know you'll have to remove the regulator on your grill right? The outside propane connection is already on a regulator and you can't have 2.

Yes, on second thought We'll take our home grill tank along and won't be tied to the trailer.

Do you know if this fix would work for a fold and go Coleman Stove? How would I find out what fitting I need to adapt the stove to my quick connect low pressure connection on the trailer? Thanks!

"MEOW!"

We bought one of these and have been quite happy with it. More durable than I would have guessed and I am able to cook very well with it.

I asked my dealer about hooking it in to the gas on the camper, and, well, see the BIG post someone else made about what you have to do to make that work...

Just replaced my FF grill with a new Weber Q. I bought the adapter kit but to be honest it is so easy with disposable tanks and fold down stand it is too easy to worry about attaching to camper and attaching camper gas. Wish I did this 2 years ago....
