Exterior Grill

My RV came with a gas grill which attaches to a rail along the wall of the RV. I have been reluctant to use the grill for fear of either burning/staining/scorching the fiberglass or getting grease on it or the awning above. Do you use yours? I know I have many other options - just want experience with this type of grill mounting.

We had one of those years ago and I didn't have the guts either.
Even though the chances of ruining the side of your RV are probably slim but who wants the grease and grime on the side of the trailer and under the awning.
I fabricated a tabletop stand that served us well for many years.

I too got an RVQ grill with my camper. I had the same feeling and decided not to use it. I bought a Weber Q to use instead.

Before I bought my Surveyor, I had a Keystone tow behind that had this grill configuration too. Like Cypressloser said, I didn't have the guts either. When I traded the trailer in for my 5er, the grill had never been used.

Been using one on 2 different campers for 6 yrs and no grease on the campers and no heat problems. The grills sit far enough away not to cause a problem and we always use them under the awning.

Used one all last year with no problem to the trailer or awning. The outdoor carpet on the other hand would collect grease that dripped, so watch out for that.

We quit using it this year because I upgrade to a Camp Chef. The sidekick that came with the camper had uneven heat and while it worked, my tax return allowed me to get something better.

Ditto OC ....we have used ours at least 25 times and have had no issues whatsoever. My only concern is that the BBQ is kinda cheaply made and I have really been trying to keep it clean so as to not have a nice greasy mess in the basement. I worry it will not really stand up to a lot of heavy cleaning wiping works just fine but seems worth about $40.00.

This question comes up every so often. If you search the forums for RVQ, you'll find lots of posts. But rest assured, there is no problems using it. We used ours extensively, with the awning, and without it. It worked great for us. We did not get one with our 5th wheel, and I do miss it. Here is a picture from our old Skamper.
