Anyone use a grill on the outside attached mount?

Anyone use or have used in the past either the propane grill that comes with the trailer, or other unit mounted ion the rail on the outside of the trailer?

If so, any issues with having heat that close to the trailer? Any melting, or other damage?

I have used mine several times with no issues. My only concern has been possible smoke clinging to my awning. I believe you are supposed to close your awning but I have not.

Ours is on a swing out arm. It swings out far enough that heat is not a problem. I've used it a number of times, like when it's too hot to mess with a campfire. It's not of the highest quality but it gets the job done.

We never used ours, and the grill was still new in the box when we sold the TT. I just preferred keeping the heat and smoke away from the TT and awning!

Have used ours almost every trip since we got it & that's been quite a few trips. I had some of your concerns, but try to keep the grease cleaned out of the grill to avoid flare ups (which we haven't had). Ours is not an overly hot grill but has worked well for us. No damage from smoke or heat otherwise. When we got it I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but it has worked well for us so we have continued to use. They are spaced far enough away from the side that you shouldn't have problems with it. Be sure & use the little side table. It is really handy when moving things in & out & when cooking on the grill.

Been using ours for over 10 years with absolutely NO damage of any kind.

Do you think that, after many decades, RV manufacturers would still be attaching grills/stoves to the sides if they caused damage?

I dont know, this is why I asked. You would think that after this many years they could make the seals on the bunk ends not leak, but that seems to be a pretty common occurrence.

I have one that came with the trailer but have decided to not use it anymore after a particularly busy grilled chicken session. No damage or anything I just don't like the IDEA. I have a Weber Q and now use that.

We've only had them for the last 8 yrs and use them every time we go out with no damage to anything. Awning is always out when we use it also. Heat on the side of the trailer or the deployed awning is NOT a problem.

I have used ours on both travel trailer and the fifth wheel. It does the job. We don't cook premade greasy burgers/sausage and have no issues with leaner meats.
