BBQ grill supplied with new 2511s

Has and/or does anyone use the BBQ grill that hangs on the side of the camper.

On purchase, ours came with a grill that is supposed to be hung on the side of the camper, we think its position is just way to close to the side panel, especially for fiberglass side.

Anyone have any thoughts and/or pictures on this subject?

My new 2511s did not come with a grill. It has a flat surface cooker, from the Suburban mfr. company. The new 2020 2511s no longer are shipped with the traditional grill as supplied with previous 2019.5 and older models.

We used our Rockwood's BBQ mounted on the side, for the 10 years we owned it. NEVER had any issues and though not the best BBQ out there, it was fine for basic BBQing.
No damage to the siding at all.

Traded the oem grill to the dealer for two nice folding rocking chairs. Already have a nice Weber propane grill we prefer.

They aren't great, but they'll cook food. I'll probably be asking Santa for a weber Q2200.

We have the Weber Q1200. Small and compact fitting nicely in the back of our F-150. Grates are porcelain enameled cast iron, igniter,drip pan, thermometer and nice folding shelves on each side. We still use the disposable one pound cylinders as it allows us to set it up anywhere and we donít have to worry about tripping over a propane line.

I had the same concern using this hot appliance mounted on the side of the trailer so I purchased the Weber Q1000 grill and the linked below Shinestar conversion kit to use the Weber with the trailers propane system. The regulator removal from the Weber was simple and I have tested the grill with the trailers propane here at home with great results. No actual cooking yet but we are heading out this week for a boondock shakedown and will use it then. We did use the Weber with the factory regulator and a bulk tank and it cooked great. I wish I had bought the Q1200 as the temp gauge would be handy for pre-heating.

I like this setup as there is a quick connect at both ends of the hose.

Note: I would have used the Rockwood supplied grill set on a table as I do with the Weber but there are no feet on the factory unit.

If you decide to keep the oem grill our last one was the ďhang on the trailer bracketĒ that you could flip and use it on a flat table surface.

I use a Weber Q1200. It has more BTUs per sq inch than the larger variety.

I carry it with one of these:

Hatchdog,
I have a Weber Q1000 and I bought a 2" thermometer gauge from Amazon. Simply drill a 1/4" hole through cover to install.

Our 2604S has the grill, as did our previous 2109S. I never liked the shelf that was provided for the grill on either trailer, so I bought an inexpensive folding wire grill stand from Amazon. Never had issues with the proximity of the grill to the sidewall with this set up.

I'd not have ordered the optional outside grill with our 2006 Roo (way back in 2005) but it came with the trailer and I thought I'd try it for a couple of times and then throw it in the trash and buy a good grill.

That was 15 camping seasons ago and the grill is still working well. And the trailer wall is still fine after those same 15 years. I store it in a Coleman canvas bag under the dinette on the road.

I'll not get into the debate about the quality of your grill, especially since you didn't ask about that but will say we've used a grill on the mounting rail for many years on several R/Vs and never experienced a single issue of excessive heat on the side wall or the awning. (if under)

Not a heat problem, we just rarely use it. It's more like a gas stove outside. We like to grill on the open fire. Can do perfectly well without it or an outdoor kitchen, but thats a personal preference. The weber Q is what we use when a fire is not an option, compact and actually a grill.

I cook all the time on my grill hooked on the side of my Roo 23WS (2017). No problems. I even use it with the awning open, again, no problems.

When we ordered our TT we had the dealer substitute a 3 burner stovetop in it's place, glad we did. My Weber Q , converted to tt's lp system is going on 12th season. Added a smoker box to the Q that I fabricated out of ss which works nicely
