You may be onto something. I have seen people at the campground using there grills and seamed to be just fine. Just didn't want to mess with it after that.

That could be true as well. However now the wife wants a new one with the outside kitchen, we have neighbors that use and love them. So maybe that will be my next move...
Ether way I can't argue with ether of you guys, seams to let the smoke out and they still have there awnings... I haven't seen one melt yet.

We just returned from our first outing with the new camper (came with the grill). My biggest learning experience regarding the grill? Don't leave it at home! Ugh!

I had taken it out if the camper while packing and in our rush to leave it was left in the garage. Fortunately, we were camping with a small group and had other grilling options. My feedback on the included grill will have to wait until the next trip.

keep a small tablet in my center counsel. It has two lists in it. First is the "don't leave home without it " list. Second is a check list of things to do when hooking up such as disconnect electric and water, hook up electric brake cable, put up the stairs, ect... This comes in handy at times and only takes a minute to check. More than once I have forgotten the steps or my dogs leash.

My 2 cents would be to use it. Granted this was our first trip the the new camper but we used it, It worked great and had no noticeable issues with the awning.Maybe if the room was enclosed I would think about not using it. Just my observation. It's seems cheap to me but never having one to compare it to maybe that's not fair, I was actually very impressed with it.

It does feel very cheap...I was surprised it cooked as well as it did but it worked really, really well. I did not enjoy cleaning it out though.

My propane line is not very long so I am not sure how well it will work in a location other than hung on the side.

I did forget about that part Roo, The cleaning it portion did blow. And I would also mention I wasn't overly impressed with the little grease catcher that has yet to catch any grease, lol. Seems its all stuck to the bottom of the grill.

Same here! Marinated steak and everything...not one drop in the drip pan. Spent a nice half hour just wiping it out with paper towels.

Still pleased with it though. I might try some foil on the grill or something to make it easier to clean.

That's exactly what we've been doing, putting foil in the bottom of it to catch the grease, makes it a bit easier to clean up.

I had posted a mod I did adapting my Weber Q to the side of my trailer in place of the grill that was supplied with my trailer. There were concerns about there being too much heat near the trailer. I used it during the labor day weekend and the side of the trailer stayed cool. [IMG][/IMG]

That looks like a very nice set up. Depending on the mood I am in I can use my grill or my stove. I have a Colman two burner stove that I can hook up if I wish. I just set it on the table that hangs off my trailer. I've attached a photo which shows both the stove and the grill. Right now I can only use one or the other but would like to get a hose so I can hook up both at the same time. I have a post that comes off the bottle that I could attach both to and put a lantern on top if I wished to. Most of the time I just use the grill and it works fine for just me and my dog. Can't forget the dog!
