The grill that came with my camper is sitting in the basement and that is where it will stay. Have been using a Weber Baby Q grill for the past 4 years and is the best grill I have had.

Would you consider selling it?

We had a ppp up for a couple of years and did ALL our cooking on the outside grill. No cooking inside the PU as this seemed less safe. Had no problems.

Now that we have a TT we still prefer to cook on outside grill as much as possible. In fact, we have a table where we also use a portable electric skillet & coffee maker.

Completely understand: just the two of us and the attached grill was adequate if slower than I imagine the Weber you reference. I also have a 30 year old Coleman stove and do a lot of cooking on it as well since I'm not real crazy about cooking odors in the enclosed space of the trailer. Since new/used trailer does not have an attached grill, I will be using the Weber "Go-Anywhere" I just bought for $50.

I bought a 10 ft extension hose at my dealer and use the grill on a table away from the camper. Call me silly or paranoid but smoke, grease, high heat and flames seem a bad mix 2 inches off a fiberglass and canvas trailer I wish to keep.

Just my opinion

Opinion is valid: can never be too safe.

I've been pondering this topic for several months. I wouldn't mind using the grill setup on the trailer but also concerned about the downsides. Do I buy a RV grill or table top grill?

Yesterday while dropping off my trailer I was talking with the finance manager when he asked if I ever used the grill rack. While waiting for me to answer he took a drink of his coffee at the same time I asked if RV grills were decent or not. The poor guy chocked on his coffee so I guess I got my answer.

If it works for you why not use it? I'm not at the point that I would get my value out of a grill, RV or tabletop. Hopefully someday that will change.

(To be honest I wouldn't mind having an RV grill )

I don't think I've see anyone else grilling on an RV grill other than me, and we camped around 25 days last year. As I stated in a previous post, I'm sure you can get a much better grill with a tabletop or on a stand. On the other hand, they are all functionally the same unless you haul a backyard size into the wilderness. I don't really care if I grill next to the trailer or on the picnic table--the steaks taste the same and the bottle of Shiraz just as good.

We use ur RV queue grill on the side rack quite a bit. Have modified it simply with a Caphalon cast iron griddle/grill reversible plate that sits right on the grill racks ( we used a bolt cutter to remove the upper level of that rack )

We've made breakfast, lunch and dinner very easily, with only the cast iron plate to clean (the grill itself has never seen any food on it, so we never have to clean it which is the big plus for us )

I don't want another grill to carry, we carry enough stuff and are trying to simplify so making use of the grill that plugs into our high pressure line is great.

I modified the table that attaches next to it on the camper side by moving the hardware to a large size bamboo cutting board, this gets rid of the cheap Formica/particle board table with something more functional and durable.

I think you mean the low pressure line, it is between 10" & 11" wg which is very low, about 5.8 psi-6.4 psi respectively.
