Outside shelf on BBQ bracket

Anyone out there made a shelf and used the BBQ bracket? I am sitting at my campsite staring at a bracket on my new roo 19 that I will never use for a BBQ. Would be perfect for a shelf tho. I have some thoughts, but no need to reinvent the wheel if there is already something out there... thanks in advance

All of the grills come with a shelf that hooks on the bracket. I guess you didn't get the grill. I love mine.

It has been done (using the BBQ bracket to support a shelf instead of a BBQ). Use the Search function at top right and type in: outdoor shelf. There are several threads dealing with this.

I cut some 3/4 plywood and made a shelf that sits on the BBQ bracket. I rimmed the plywood with a 1 inch lip of stock molding to keep things from rolling off and provide some stiffness. I did have to cut a couple of small slots into the back of the shelf to allow the bracket to exit from the bottom of the shelf. I painted with clear gloss varnish, top and bottom. I slide the shelf under the folded down dinette when I'm not using it. I usually put soda cans on it, and I can access those cans easily by sliding the shelf out from under the folded dinette easier then crawling under the dinette to reach the cans. We never use the indoor dinette anyway and it just becomes a storage space for groceries and other things.
Sorry I have no pictures...

Or you could check with your dealer or contact Sherri at FR corporate - she is the parts contact for Roo/Shamrock (contact list is in the library) and get a price on the table from them. It would be laminate that matches your inside counter tops. It comes with the grill package, but you should be able to buy it separately as well if you want to go that route.

We don't even take the grill that came with our "Rock" with us when we camp but I love the shelf. We put our ice maker on it and plug it in to the outside of the camper. The only thing that I would change is the width of the shelf...wish it was bigger. Have to get Hubby working on that!

Love my bbq and shelf that came with my trailer! Very convenient with the quick connect propane too! I just have to always put it away when I am in bear country ;-)

Our FR Flagstaff came with both the grille and a shelf. Your FR dealer or FR parts should be able to source a shelf for you. I did not care for the grille and instead use a Weber 100 series. I found a propane dealer who sold me the fittings to attach it to the trailer propane connection.

Here is a link to a table support for someone wanting to make their own shelf: http://tinyurl.com/j23lovv

Check with the dealer. BBQ sometimes come with them, I have two I use. Dealer may have gotten one in. I use one under my 5er's hitch sometimes.

We use the BBQ and shelf that came with our Roo every time we camp. The BBQ could be larger/more powerful, but it does the job nicely. The shelf is very convenient for prepping food.
