I did the same thing, the parts are available at most local hardware stores or camper supplies. I got a long one so I would not be restricted on being right next to the camper.

Ours did not come with it but I will be adding it. I do not want to have to carry a separate tank for the grill.

Ha quick connect

We have only used ours once but I'm with you. Why care the extra weight and take up valuable space with the extra tank.

We use ours almost every time we go camping. At first, we didn't like the idea of mounting it right on the trailer bracket so we bought a 10-foot Camco quick-connect hose from Amazon...just search for Camco 57282 10' Quick Connect hose...just under $30. Using the hose, it can be used on a picnic table.
But some rainy days forced us to mount it on the camper and we were surprised at how handy that was. As long as we were cooking steaks or salmon (not fatty hamburgers or brats), it was just fine.
I do have a small water spray bottle to keep any flames at bay...flare ups will ruin just about anything!

Who uses thier quick connect?

I have a question on this subject. Went through the forum and didn't see it in here. Mine is plumbed and ready for a quick connect close to the rear of the trailer. I've looked at my BBQ and looks like no issue to take off the regulator and plumb right into the BBQ . But the Coleman camp stove has the little skinny tube that goes into the end of the stove and has the regulator built into it. Is there an adapter from the little nut that screws onto the stove to a propane hose.
I'll await the flow of wisdom😊

If you have a window close to a trailer mounted grill like on the Mini Lite 2502ks, close it when grilling. The smoke detector wakes up the entire campground. I know first hand.

I haven't seen your specific grill, but most have a threaded fitting right at the burner control inlet that should unscrew, where you can thread on an appropriate fitting or adapter to hook your quick connect to. If you can post a close up pic we can tell you. I believe most, if not all grills have the regulator assy thread on to the tank, and there should be a threaded fitting where the hose meets the grill.

Thanks for this thread! I just placed the order for the parts to convert my Coleman Roadtrip to the quick connect! For 5 years I've been staring at that quick connect on my last unit and not our new unit and still... always.... those stupid little green bottles! NO MORE!
