I use a Coleman Road Trip (the blue one), but wish I'd bought a Weber. Road Trip doesn't have enough height under the hood to do a pork loin. Is great for burgers or steaks. I find the water tray to be a pain to take care of. Also have a Weber Smoky Joe for ribs and chicken if its just the 2 of us. Otherwise cook on the fire pit if its clean enough.
I have a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker that's the real deal for BBQ. I use at home for briskets, turkeys pork shoulders and ribs and I'm going to see if I can squeeze it into the back of the truck. My camper came with the RVQ and it actually works decent - pain to clean and only has one burner.

the Roo/Shamrock hybrids usually came with Sidekick Grills, not RVQ grills.
what year and model of Roo/Shamrock do you have?

by the way, Zwicker, those grills you mentioned at the end of your post, are all high pressure grills and will not work with the trailer propane pigtail since it's low pressure.
at least without doing some modifications.

Sorry, could be a Sidekick. My old 2008 Shamrock had, I recall, an RVQ. Old one had a side bracket mount to the camper that detached in the middle of cooking (good times). New one has a bumper mounted swing-out bracket that at least holds. Regardless, with either one, the grease goes everywhere except into the drip pan,

I've had a Coleman Roadtrip for 4 years now but just upgraded to a Weber Q2000. I found the Coleman hard to keep clean - the burner "pan" is attached to the cover and screwed into the body of the grill. To really clean it well, the pan/cover assembly needs to be removed. Kind of a pain and time consuming. No disassembly required to clean the Weber. Also always never liked the shallow lid on the Roadtrip. We pan grill veggies almost every dinner, and the grill lid doesn't close, even with shallow grill pans. Love the Weber's deep lid, no complaints so far.

I have the Coleman Road Trip (Blue one) and yes, I modified the regulator to use with the pigtail. Works like a charm.
