just tested this mod...

I got to thinking about a thread a few weeks ago about a bumper mount for a grill. Why not make one that folds away, easy to set up, and would be level with the camper. so here is what I came up with. the whole thing folds on itself, once i remove the grill and base. It stores on the hitch, but facing inwards. the grill and base, as well as the stem all stores in a plastic box inside a storage area. anyway, it only cost me about $10 excluding the hitch bumper adapter which I already had.

I like it.

Now you can plumb into the trailers LP line with a quick disconnect and won't need the mini tank.

That neat. If I'm not @ a racetrack, I could use the flagpole holder brkt on my TT in a similiar fashion. I may have to work on something like that for next year (chop saw is out on loan).

I couldn't find 1 listed on the 'net, but I found a 25' hose w/ male & female 1"-20 threaded connections. Allows me to move the portable BBQ I use, under the under awning if the weather isn't good.

I am not sure who makes the hose but our Sierra came with a grill, rack, and quick disconnect hose assembly. It is mounted in an area under the awning. The propane fitting is behind the right rear wheel.

I like the OPs grill though. I would like to find that grill and make it work with our rack.

Mr. Black, your's is probably a RVQ, that in doing some research is a low pressure grill. Low pressure in that it sources the propane after the regulator. I had 1 that came w/ my Jayco popup.

If the grill (BBQ in Canada) is teed off the tank (before the regulator) w/ a Stay-A-While or a separate bottle, it's a high pressure unit that has it's own regulator.

Good call. Didn't think about that and I should have.
