Gas grill on rockwoods

I have seen some pictures of the gas grill and work table that comes with the Rockwood trailers but I can't tell how it is set up. Where does the grill connect to the trailer? Does it sit on top of the table? Is everyone happy with the grill?

Thanks

The grill mounts to a rail on the side of the RV just as the table. It has a couple of arms that come out to hold the grill a distance from side of the RV. There is a LP hose that pulls out of a cover to provide propane.

With that said, we have used our grill twice since we bought the RV 5 years ago. I no longer keep it in the RV. I would have been happier with some type of two burner cooktop but probably wouldn't use that much either as I prefer the fire pit to cook on.

Thanks. That answers my question. We are planning on using it, but you never know. We also like cooking over an open fire.

Yeah, I wondered about cooking under the awning. It doesn't sound like a good idea.

I have the Sidekick gas grille on my Flagstaff, and I use it often. It has plenty of room between the grille and the awning, and if you're skeptical, reach your hand above the grille while it's on, and feel for the heat. I personally didn't feel any real difference, but I haven't checked that on a dead calm day. Also, it is plenty far enough from the camper, as long as you put it on there properly. It can go 2 different ways! Hope this helps calm your fears, at least a little!!! Randy

Thanks, that's good to know. I think it would be nice to have for those times when it's raining or you just don't want to haul around charcoal to cook on an open fire.

I share your concerns, but we've had no problems using it throughout this camping seasons. Well one problem, the table pulled the strip off the wall, but that was an easy fix. It works OK for the two of us, but I'm thinking of an alternative grill. I have a portable weber in the garage - but it is not as compact as the RVQ

We have the grill and like one other post, would rather have two burner eye rather than the grill...it works ok but I take my grilling more serious that the side kick grill...like the hose connection located right below it....On a one to ten scale, I'd have to give it about a 4...
