I could not get my grill in the bag without removing the side handles, I gave up and took the useless handles off. I store it in the bag in a plastic bin, but have to stand it up right on it side to fit the bin. I guess it just makes you wounder....

Unless I am "camping" we don't even take ours. Keep it in a Rubbermaid box with the lid. Put in the back of the truck if we are taking it. Too much trouble if we are out sightseeing. We grab most of our meals out when traveling about. Didn't get a bag with mine.

We have a 2013 A127TH...no bag with our Que, but did get the spatula. We keep the Que in the back storage compartment. It's a little tricky getting it in - but no trouble as long as you're hopping on one foot, sticking out your tongue, and crossing your fingers!! :-0

I just spent 10 mins again trying to get it in the bag. No dice, at least with the handles on.

For now, I can haul it in the front cargo rack in a trash bag, but longer term I'd really like something better. Maybe I'll break down and build some kind of a wooden box from plywood that I can mount on the rear bumper (or try to pay off a carpenter-friend with beer to make one )

Bag? I didn't see no stinkin' bag?

We store ours in the back compartment of our A128s. I agree with FarFromStock, if you turn it sideways, then upside down, cross your eyes and fingers, it goes in with ABSOLUTELY no trouble!

BTW: I hate the 3' hose as well.

We use our grill quite a bit as I am always forgetting to buy charcoal!

Not a storage tip, but a usage tip - the Que that came with our A128S had an 'upper' level grill which apparently was to warm buns etc. The trouble is that the clearance between the upper grill and the top cover when closed is only about 1/2" - so it was almost useless. Plus, the upper grill made it difficult to fully utilize the main grill, and it is small enough to begin with (try flipping a burger that is at the back of the grill). So I used a bolt-cutter to clip the top grill completely off and now we have a much more usable grill.

I share the struggles of finding a good place to store/haul the grill. I have a 2 door Jeep so cargo space in the Jeep is a premium and unfortunately the only place I have been comfy hauling the grill.

However I will warn against mounting it to the rear bumper. I've read lots of posts here and other forums of the horrors of items mounted to the bumper causing damage to the camper, camper frame and even the items themselves.

There is a lot of jostling that happens at the end of the trailer. Mounting anything with any significant weight will transfer that weight and stresses of its movement through the bumper and into the frame.

I fear a plywood box plus the grill will weigh in at least about 40 lbs.. That much weight wouldn't be good in my opinion.
