i found some Sidekick grills on Ebay for around $150. our Sidekick grill has worked great for the 6 years we've owned the trailer.

with the grill option, you also got a little folding table that attaches to the side rail. real nice for setting seasonings and plates on.
I would also get the Sidekick or the RVQ on Ebay. Whichever one is the cheapest and you know it fits the trailer. Don't see the necessity for the high priced ones when these work great.

I went with the Coleman Roadtrip LX grill? I know I can't connect it directly to the connection on the camper but I found a the Marshall Extend a Flow Plus that I will get to put on one of my tanks and use the 12' hose to run it. I had a Grill to Go befoer and liked that it had a griddle side. I let it go with the popup since it was about 10 years old.

On a side note, is there way to make a table to use the mount that is on the camper for the grill? Not sure what the piece would be called to look it up. Basically I would get a piece of wood and add this to the back edge and then have a support to lean against the camper. Like what my stove on my popup did.

Hi Cheryl,

Welcome aboard and congrats on your new-to-you Rockwood Roo! I've reading threads about grill suggestions so I'm interested in the feedback on this topic.

Since I'm not ready to commit I ended up buying a tailgrate grill on clearance for $25. Please do keep us updated on what you decided to do.

Have fun camping!

We have the RVQII and LOVE IT!! On our old Kodiak hybrid I had it mounted on the wall of the trailer, but when we bought our Grey Wolf I didn't want to mess with mounting and possibly scratching the metal on the trailer, so I bought a mount that swings off the rear bumper and holds the grill. I had to plumb the gas to the rear of the camper, but that was only was only about $30 of material and 2 hrs or so of work, much better than the $300 that the dealer wanted to do it.

My dad wanted a RVQII also so when we bought our Grey Wolf I talked the dealer into cutting us a deal, then he got the grille as a fathers day present. If you do get the RVQII the easiest way that I have found to clean it is buy sponges made to clean the George Foreman grills.

Grege, the part on the camper you are asking about to hook a table or shelf is the same as an inside table on the older models its about 10.dollars i think table support

We have had Camp Chef " big gas grill" 3 burner. It lasted 8 yrs of hard use before I had to retire it. It's worth checking out 3 30k burners makes it more powerful than most grills used at home!

Coleman Roadtrip LXE and we have the full griddle top for pancakes and sausages as well as the open ring 1/2 top for putting pots on one side and grilling on the other. It is the most versatile portable grill on the market IMO. With a bit of ingineuty you can make an adapter hose to connect it to the onboard low pressure gas supply as well as there have been threads on here regarding that topic.

I also the Coleman road trip lxe. What a piece of junk. Very hard to clean. Teflon griddle, the Teflon is is coming off on the food. You can't close lid with the Teflon griddle on. After 4 seasons the wheels are falling off. My son has the same one and he's experiencing same problems

Not sure why you have the issues you do as ours is 4 years old and is in perfect shape other than some blackening of the vent area. And it is no harder to clean than any normal grill IMO. As with anything results may vary though.
