We had a Shamrock as well & stored the BBQ & table in the truck box. Our 2009 table was laminated & we left it out in the rain one night. It didn't do well. We only used the BBQ once when our son borrowed our portable Napoleon BBQ. It worked fine but as stated before we didn't want to BBQ so close to the trailer and the bracket for mounting was high. In the newer Rockwoods the table is plastic & should stand up.

I store the table under my couch in the drawer but carry the grill in my pickup bed don't want it flying around the inside of my Roo or gouging my shower tray

We got one of these a few weeks ago:

Works great with the onboard propane connection. I got a little camping table to set it on and just removed the swing out arm that held the cheap grill that came with the camper.

I have the outside grill purchased with my 2016 Rockwood. It is new in the box and I don't intend to use it. I just wanted the installed gas plumbing. I'd be willing to sell it if you're interested. Does your camper have the gas connection? It is not like what used to come on the Fleetwood popups. Those were high pressure lines (tank pressure). The Forest River trailers use low pressure (after the regulator) gas plumbing which means that anything that you want to connect must work on low pressure.

Thank you all for the replies and information. What we were really looking for in the outside grill is a high pressure grill like the one we had on our pop up. It sounds like the Rockwood grills are not the same; we already have a regular propane grill that we can use. We do have the gas connection, if our grill doesn't run off that we might be looking for another one.

Although we have had a pop up for years, I have come to realize that we really are newbies in the trailer world. I'm so happy that I found these boards; I'm sure that we will have many questions after we camp this weekend.

If the one on your pop-up ran off the gas bottle on the pop-up then it most likely was a low pressure grill, not high pressure.

The grill on our pop up ran off the gas connection and was definitely a high pressure grill. I loved it for boiling water - so quick! Our portable gas grill runs off a propane tank; I'm guessing that means that it is low pressure and can hook to the gas connection on our Roo?

Did it run off the gas connection on the pop-up itself? If so, I would have thought it would have been after the regulator, which would make it a low pressure. I definitely could be mistaken, but that is how I understand the propane system to work.
When you say your portable runs off a propane tank, are you talking about the little green screw in cylinders? Or a larger 20LB tank that has a hose running from it to the grill?

Your grill on your pop up shouldn't have or technically couldn't be high pressure.
Your pop up had a regulator right on the tank.
Only way to be high pressure is to hook it directly to the tank.

The portable you ran right off the tank is probably regulated in side the grill.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a high pressure grill ever.

I guess another good question would be how does this outdoor grill work? Is it even worth trying to find? We used the one on our pop-up all the time; although we do also bring a small gas grill with us for actually grilling.
My 2005 had one and I used it all the time. My 2008 had the mount but no grill or gas line so the dealer gave me a 20 pound tank and gas line. It was cheaper for him than to add the gas line that was missing. On the 5th wheel Rockwood it was an add on.

I would rather use it or the microwave than heat up the trailer. Why not use a 2 burner Colman on a small aluminum table?
