2011 Catalina 26BH Newbie!

Getting a start on these forums as I am going to need a lot of info as a total trailer newbie!

Was a tenter, now living in luxury, or at least about to.

First question I have is: What is considered one of the best but not a wallet breaker grill to get to use with my gas line that runs out the side of the trailer?

I will see ya out there!

Congrats on the new camper and welcome to the forums!! Not sure if the gas outlet on your trailer is regulated or not. If it is, you would need a hose that attaches to the outlet and to the grill. You would need to remove the regulator on the grill before attaching the hose. I bought a Weber Baby Q grill and I had a hose made up at a local camping store that would attach to the grill and to the outlet. Removed the regulator on the grill and attached the hose directly to the grill. Works great and the grill is excellent.

Good luck!

Thank you for the welcome!

I will have to look at what all is on this thing, picking it up in a week or so.
I really appreciate the info as I was seeing online elsewhere I need to find out of it is regulated.
I want to be ready with a grill for the maiden voyage!!

We are very exited to say the least!

to the forum and congratulations on your camper!

If you are looking for a grill which will attach to the side of you trailer, my experience is with the RVQ and the Sidekick. Between the two I prefer the Sidekick. The Sidekick frame extends farther out than the RVQ, so the heat is farther away from the trailer. The Sidekick is much easier to clean. The RVQ we had did not have a detachable grease trap and it was a mess to clean. The Sidekick has a grease trap. The Sidekick may be used on the side of your trailer or as a free standing grille.

As far as a freestanding grill, the Coleman Roadtrip is a very versatile grill. It may be used with its own stand or as a table top unit. It has interchangeable cooking surfaces which include grill, stove and griddle. There are two halves, so you can mix and match the cooking surfaces for your needs such as one side a griddle and the other a grill or any combination. And it is VERY easy to clean up...VERY easy.

There are many choices. Good luck with what you decide.

Hey all, another question or two before we head out in a few hours for the first dry camping experience.

Any help?

Fill up fresh water tank, drive around the block and it then reads 1/3 full???
