I did see this post, but thought the 21RR and the 17RR would be too different. I think you gave me the place to buy the heavier tie-down... thanks! Clint

Ok ladies and gents has anyone added an outside grill to their 19rr. I am thinking about the RVQ II grill that I have seen on the web RVQ II Grill Portable RV Grill $199 with FREE SHIPPING except HI, AK & Canada but am unsure about the weight hanging on the outside wall and getting the gas line connected. My dealer had reservation about installing it, saying it could void our warranty. Any thoughts from the crowd?

Not sure that I would want to "lock" myself in to grilling right on the side of my camper. For about the same price, I bought a Weber Q220. The housing is completely cast aluminum (no rust), the cooking grill is cast iron, and the burner is stainless steel. I feel the thing will outlast most grills in this price range and Weber makes a quality product. Also since we are empty nesters now, I went with the larger Q220 (versus 200 or 120, etc) because it is also our main grill at home now. I found the optional cart/stand at Camping World for $35 (normally $50) and I also bought the adapter hose, so at home I keep it on a 20lb LP tank and just use the small, disposable LP tanks when camping. This gives me the option to leave the cart in the camper and just set the Q220 on a picnic table at the campsite, or put it on the cart and roll it to where I want to cook. I have had times where it is windy while camping and I will roll my grill down wind of the camper and use the camper as a wind block. Personally, I would not want to have to have my grill in a fixed location right next to the camper. Especially under the awning, where I tend to keep a lot of other things out of the weather, including sometimes my motorcycle.

That's my 2 cents... the one benefit would be you would be cooking with the main LP tanks on the camper, so you wouldn't have to deal with the smal, disposablel LP tanks.

CQ - very interesting grill that Volcano. Watched the video on how you can bake a cake on it with the dutch oven. Pretty neat.

Thanks Tom and CQ for the info. I will check those grills out for a possible alternative to the wall mount model. We had a wall mount model on our previous trailer and really liked it for cooking breakfast. Most of our true grill cooking has typically been done over the open fire.

Rear ramp door extension

I have see some flip down jacks similiar to the legs on the bench seats, but they do have to be strong enough. I was wondering if anyone has done such as this?
I had this mod done to my trailer. The ramp is attached to the top (when closed) of the door and folds out the back to extend the ramp out so my Goldwing will clear. Bumper Docks were screwed into the outside of the rear door to jack it up. It works pretty slick and the bike clears with about an inch or so to spare. If I get into a bind I can jack up the front of the trailer but I never want to do that unless I really have to. It hasn't happened yet. I can attach a photo if necessary.

Here is a mod that I did to my camper that I did that I do have a photo of. It's very extensive and you may want to hire me out to make it yourself as it can be tricky.



That's right. I attached, with velcro, the remote control to the low ceiling above the master bed. That way I never lose it and I can even turn the channel without taking it down. I'm so handy. I kill me.

Man, that had to take the better part of an afternoon to get that done! I like it. I am always misplacing the remote!

Even the simplest of ideas can be great ideas! I think I am going to do that too! Thanks! (plus your post gave me a good chuckle)
