My 21FBRS came with a small grill that attaches to the outside wall of the tt. We tried it and it worked fine but it is not a high quality grill. Can other grills such as webers be made to attach to the rail on the side of my camper?

I wonder if I can hang a Weber Q100 on the side? It weighs about 30 lbs.

i would suggest against hanging a grill off the wall of a camper. there's alot of food splatter and grease that you will need to clean up afterwards. also when searing food, that's quite a bit of heat so close to the side walls, that would make me nervous about heat damage...

X2!! I too would be nervous about hanging a grill on the wall for the same reasons Himcules noted.

But the camper is designed for this. We used it several times and had no problems with
food splatter and grease on the camper. It is actually hung far enough away to prevent this. I think it is a great idea and just want a more quality grill.

X3. The thought of a fire SO close to the trailer freaks me out. What if there was a grease fire?

I also have the Camp Chef grill, and LOVE it...wish my burners at home were so powerful. We set it up at least 6' away from the camper, and just take a propane tank from the trailer (there are 2), to where the "outside kitchen" is set up, no big deal.

Hanging a grill from side of trailer...

Really that topic should not be in the mix of conversation about Camp Chef grills. As others have noted in this thread, the Camp Chef's have some very high output, and get much too hot to sit up against the TT. They are also heavy and incompatible with "hanging" on TT for that reason, too. The grills which come with campers often (if not always) operate on lower pressure/BTU output and are very lightweight, for good (safety and engineering) reasons.

X2 Vern, the heat/splatter is not a problem with the factory furnished grills, I would not consider another grill without it being the same or less weight. Would definitely consider an all stainless grill of the same weight tho'.

just picked up another camp chef. this time, the denali 3 burner combo with square dutch oven and lid/griddle. saw this at one of those overstock stores that buys from costco/samsclub... killer price for a brand new unit so now i have 2 camp chef grills and 5 high powered burners for the outdoor kitchen! now i can finally prepare proper meals while i'm away from my home kitchen
