sidekick barbecues

Does anyone have a sidekick barbecue and the table that also be used on the same rail? Are they worth the extra money? I am thinking of getting one for the TT but also putting the table lower so that it can be used with the chairs. Does any one have an opinion on these items? Just another remodel of sorts for spring for the DH to do.

ours came with it but i probably wouldn't order one as an extra option or pay a dealer for one.

too many better grill options out there and the side table isn't that big.

I agree with Bikendan. We had a Sidekick on our 3065W and although I used it quite a bit, I wouldn't have ordered it. There are numerous gas and charcoal grills that do a better job of grilling than the Sidekick. The main benefit is that it runs off the trailers propane supply.
I currently have a Coleman Roadtrip and don't care for it at all. I'm thinking about replacing it with a Weber Q.

My trailer came with one as well - I use it every outing I do cause it is very convienent for me since I dont have to carry extra propane or another grill.

If this one ever burns out I would most likely buy another one to replace it - whether the same one or not - not sure but it would be another mountable grill.

if i wanted something similar to the Sidekick or RVQ, i'd buy this one from Camco:

Camco RV - Stainless Steel Mountable Grill - 57305 - Gas Grills - Camping World

you'd still have to install the side bracket, though.

that would be a nice direct replacement for the Sidekick for sure cause it mounts the same along the rail and I bet the hose connection is the same.

Thank you for all the input. Looks I'll rethink the sidekick and maybe consider other ones.

My 2011 Flagstaff came with the grill and table. Use them, but wouldn't order one. Wayne
P. S. Don't know what they would cost.

Ours came with them as well. The grill is somewhere in the basement still in the box but we do use the table for the coffee maker if and when we use it.
