THe one attached to the bumper of my TT, it swings out and so far has worked just fine, unless it is windy out! I need to cut off the second tier grate, take up too much room!

Love the wood smoke flavor . . .

We use a small Traeger Junior (grill/smoker) that I removed the legs from. It fits in the back of my truck with the hard cover down. You can get mesquite, hickory, apple, cherry, pecan, (etc.) wood pellets. We always smoke our meat, veggies, pizza, etc. first and then finish it off at a higher temp. The flavor of wood smoke can't be beat, in our opinion. We used our larger Traeger for a season, then decided we had to have a small one to take camping.

Traegers are at Grills - Traeger Online Store

Well I decided on a Weber Baby Q120 from Amazon.com
I actually received it today and was easy to put together.
I was impressed with the burner quality as well as the metal grate.
I also was surprise to have the temp guage and the electric igniter (AAA battery) Nice coler and the two foldout shelves will come in handy.

Probably will start out with the small 16 oz bottles then maybe move up to a larger propane tank and long hose.

Not to change the subject but the only difference is you are towing a Honda and I have a Fiat.

Iggy, love that Fiat and it is Italian red!! Have been a Fiat fan for 40 or so years and still have a couple of oldies. I really want the new Abarth 500....

We have a Coleman LX Road Trip grill. It's the fancier version of the LXE. Looks pretty sexy, lol. Got it from CW for $160 something after a discount when it was on sale. We like the interchangeable grill tops. There's one large flat surface one, one for pots and another grate/grilling type for steaks.

We can do 8 pancakes at once which is nice. Can't close the lid with the large grill in place which is a kinda weird design. And when using the grilling grate, you have to use a pan to hold water under the grill (comes with it) but you end up with a pan full of water and grease which you need to dispose of. Not easy in a campground. Heats the grates evenly which is good.

When we went to use it the first time, the ignitor would not start on one side. Fortunately we were near a Camping World store and were able to get it exchanged for a complete new unit. The guy we dealt with said the Colemans are crap and recommended we change over to a Weber but we liked the Coleman setup. Nice to find out that those in the know and where we bought it think it's crap.

One odd design feature is that when it is all collapsed and ready for storage, the bottom does not lay flat and rocks. There is a piece in the centre of the bottom about 1" lower. We use a chunk of foam at each end to keep it secure.

This thing is not small, but it does fit okay in our storage compartment. It sits on top of our portable folding table and it is held in place with a couple of bungy cords. Since these things are aimed at RVers, I'm not sure why they don't think of how people are going to store them and tie them down.

Weber Q 220 here. Picked it up midway through last season and with the addition of a couple grilling plates we carry if fits all of our needs. Fits the back hatch of our trailer almost perfectly. I say almost because I need to tilt it slightly to get through the hatch.

We have a 8lb tank with 6' hose that work great with the Weber.

I just got a Traeger portable grill. It fits perfectly in the basement cargo bay, I get all the different flavored pellets and the great taste of the Traeger. Only have to sit it up on the table, plug it in, and grill.

Small compants? If it works well, why leave it home?
