Campfire grill

We rarely cook inside when we're out in the camper. We mainly use an electric skillet, and a campfire grill to do 90% of our cooking. Cooking over an open fire is one of the best parts of getting outdoors. We do have a range and oven, but so far we've only used the range once to boil water and have never fired the oven. The campfire grill I currently have is a simple tripod grill similar to this:

Its simple to set up, take down and does not take up hardly any space. But its kind of a pain in the rear to use. My wife bought me a pair of heat resistant bbq gloves which I love and will be taking on all future trips. That's made life a little easier. But Ive got some downtime before our next planned trip and have been contemplating a new campfire grill. Ive got enough scrap steel laying around, I could probably weld up something similar to this:

Does anyone else have a similar set up? How do you like it? I want something easy to set up, tear down and doesn't take up too much space, but is also a joy to use. What does everyone else use?
Suggestions?

I bought something like that and love it when I cook on the fire.

Cool deal, the fire ring actually looks similar to a house trailer wheel?

I have an Adjust a Grill from Bass Pro Shop. I have had it for a long time and love it every time I use it. I love that you can raise and lower it with some hand tight set screws. Then when you need to turn something over. You just swivel out from over the fire, turn them over, then swivel it back. Your not reaching over a fire.

It depends on where you camp. Many of the areas where we camp it is too rocky to push things into the ground far enough to support much weight. I also question if the food on the second level would get enough heat to cook properly?

We are on our second "Aussie" charcoal grill from Lowe's. Easy to transport and lots of cooking surface and under $50.
