RVQ Storage - Where to put it?

So... we used our brandy-spankin' new RVQ that hooks on to the bumper swing arm on the rear of our '13 Tracer 3200BHT.... Not bad... going to take a little bit to get used to the heat pattern, but did cook up some great tasting buffalo/bacon/bleu cheese burgers and chicken wings last weekend but now the question is.... where in the world do you store it? I don't want this smelling up the storage area, which is also under the front bedroom. Also, don't want to attract any little critters (mice, ants, etc.).
Any one out there have this RVQ and figured out a good storage method?

Made a sheet metal hook and hang it in the basement. I always burn it off after using so there is no smell, thus not critters or varmints and it doesn't get any damage to the igniter for which I made a shield out of 1" alum sq. tubing.

There used to be actual RVQ canvas bags on Ebay for around $5. I use that & just throw it in the back of the truck.

We always kept our's out until we returned home. If it's in its "wrapper", it really doesn't stink anything up (besides, how could you call BBQ smell stink???). But we really had no choice. Got it home and took it out and cleaned it up. You're really kind of limited on where you can store it.

Nicely done "oldcoot"... Mkayers and EdJ... i was kinda thinking along those lines.. a storage bag, container of some sort... I did however, burn off as much drippings that i could and cleaned it up a bit after it cooled down...
"BBQ smell stink".. hahahha.. sorry.. not exactly the best way to describe the ever so tasty smells of bar-b-queuing... ( I do smoke a mean Turkey and Pork butt in my smoker) .... I guess the way to say it better is, I don't want to smell my grill under my bed?!

Guess while i'm camping this weekend at Small Country Campground, I'll figure out a location too... the storage up front isn't bad, but i have the outside kitchen too and there's plenty of room to put it in there, tied down ofcourse

We bought a mortar mixing tub at Lowes. About $8 if i recall, and the RVQ style grill fits quite nicely in it. Keeps everythign neat and clean.

I put mine in a plastic storage tub and stuck it in the pass through storage. I'm not sure this will be my last solution because I had to take the handles off to make it fit.

We have the RVQ 2, ours came with a canvas storage bag that hold the mounting bracket-hose-drip pan and the grill itself. I keep an ice cream bucket with a small bottle of dish wash detergent and a couple grill sponges inside of it in the storage compartment and we we are packing up I wash the entire grill off, let it dry, then pack it all up in the bag and place it in rear storage compartment. I found that the George Foreman grill sponges work prefect for cleaning my RVQ2, the ridges of the grill and grooves of the sponge are identical. But if you have the original RVQ I don't know if they will work or not since I have never seen the smaller original RVQ.

As others said look on Ebay for the grill bag. When I was looking for deals on the RVQ2 for my dad a couple years ago there were 2-3 different sellers with the bags in the $15 range shipped.

I may try my George Forman sponge that I have. I had the round grill and up initial last year, I used it camping but it fell apart.
