Our choice

We just went thru this after a long review, we settled on the Roadtrip XXL.It's not as light as I had hoped but it cooks well. I went with the xxl because on the other Coleman models you are not supposed to close the lid while cooking.

we took a chance and opted for the RV grill available when you order from the factory and we are pleasantly surprised with this little grill. It works great and very handy to have it mounted on the wall . . stores easily in the basement Great price on Amazon too. here's the link:

Grills

Our old Shamrock came with a RVQ grill that mounted to a rail under the awning. Wasn't pleasant when the rail started to detach from the camper in the middle of BBQing with flames shooting up. A tech suggested I get bigger screws and insert after shooting epoxy into the holes. Larger screws wouldn't fit within the rail so I used the old ones with epoxy. Worked like a charm with never another problem.
Our new Shamrock came with a grill bracket bolted to the rear bumper. This is a cool set-up as the bracket swings the grill out away from the camper and the awning. The Grill itself looks a little better made. Not worried about the bumper as its welded to a 6.5" Ibar.
I have the blue Coleman Road Trip grill and it works well. 2 complaints: a) the cover is shallow so I can't do a pork loin with the cover down. The Weber cover has a higher dome. b) steaks come out nice and moist with the water tray. But after cooking, removing the tray which now has greasy water can get messy (at least for me) and then where are you supposed to dump it? The firepit I guess.

All these positive postings for the Webber Q. I must have a defective one, I hate it, doesn't get hot enough. I purchased it because I had such good luck with my webber Genesis at home. Recently made some mods to the burner after 5 years of less than par grilling. I won't get a chance to try it until Memorial Day. If it is not any better, it will go on Craigslist and I will buy the stainless one at SAMs Club.

The flames on my Weber Q 200 had gotten progressively lower and lower.
Prior to giving it to my SIL I pulled the burner out, took a brush to all the holes in it and blew it out with compressed air. Fixed the problem and the flames were much higher after I did that.

I still think these could get hotter for cleanup, but if you're having low flame issues that's what I'd recommend trying.

For what little it may be worth, for weight considerations we bought a Weber Q1200 to replace the Aussie that came with our coach. Since the Weber uses high pressure bottles, I had to remove the built in regulator and replace it with a low pressure connector (Camco 59903) and a brass ⅛ to ľ female to female pipe thread adapter to make the grill work with the motorhome low pressure system. I bought a 10' hose to replace the 3' one that came with the Aussie. This system makes for a much more versatile (and capable) rig.

I had a problem with my Weber Q not getting hot enough last year. It turned out to be the hose I had bought to connect to a 20lb tank. Tried the little disposable bottles and it worked great. So, a new hose and all is well.

Another trick I found was to open the gas tank slowly. The regulator on the grill will "clamp down the pressure" if it senses a lot of psi in a hurry.

I bought a nice little temp gauge for mine at wally world and in 10 min I can run it up to 550*. This is a Q2000 bought off craigslist for $25 w/stand, hose for 20lb tank, and the 20lb tank which was full. I bought a new regulator for it because the knob was cracked and bent over. Works great.

I use a Charbroil brand Grill 2 Go. It's very compact and well made. The only downside is you are limited to propane bottles. Reasonably priced.

X2 on Bend302. The Q grills can be pressure sensitive which can be caused by turning the tank on too quickly or bad hose connections. I've seen grills returned because of this condition, which is correctable.
