Bumper grill or Coleman Roadtrip?

Our new unit came with the swing out bumper grill for the outdoor kitchen. I haven't hooked it up or played with it yet but it looks like its smaller then our current Coleman Roadtrip grill.

Looking for feedback on your experience with the bumper grill. Is it an adequate replacement? When we camp I frequently cook for 5 people (4 adults and a 2yr old).

My wife thinks we need to keep the Roadtrip along with the bumper grill but with less basement storage space I just don't think it will be possible.

the bumper grills are garbage. I took my grill that came with camper off and gave it away before I even used it. Nothing but Weber Q for me.

I used mine and it is nothing to write home about. When it wears out I am going to find a way to mount a much better unit on the swing arm because it is pretty convenient.

sam's club sells a nice stainless tabletop grill for $99 . I took the factory one off took pipe nipples and bolts and mounted it to the factory bumper mount. Also got a flat griddle to use on it as great

My Salem Cruise lite has the optional bike rack so the optional outdoor kitchen came with the barbecue and a folding stand for it (like what the hotels have for suitcases). Haven't used it yet but I did realize it did not come with the gas hose to connect the barbecue to the trailer. I'm taking my trailer in for some minor repairs and I will ask about the missing hose. I would think the trailer should come with that. I'll try the barbecue when camping season rolls around and see how it does.

I used my bumper grill all year long and I didn't mind it, sure it's not the best, but it cooked the heck out of hamburgers and hot dogs and made some mean steaks. It just doesn't have a tonne of btu's

Gary it should have come with it. Mine was stuck in beside the fridge in the outdoor kitchen.

I agree about the grille also. It's not bad. I'm not living in my TT so it's fine for camping.

I had the bumper grill and used it alot on both the popup and first TT. Towards then end we got rid of the grill for a Coleman Roadtrip. Both work but now we can bring the grill to a park for a picnic, use it where ever. I have not made it work with the line on the trailer, I just plug it into one of the propane cylinders.

We just purchased from Target a grill made by Stok model gridiron & are really impressed with it. My brother had a Colemen and couldn't control the temp very well & ended up going with the Weber's. The Stok is actually a larger grill than the Weber's and very portable.... One thing g we learned after the purchase is they don't make a cover for we purchased a Colemen cover that fits perfectly.
