RVQ grill with a PUP

Our PUP came with the RVQ grill. We've owned the camper for over a year now, but we've never used it.

Before I fire it up, I'm looking for some feedback from people on their experience using the RVQ with a PUP. My concern boils down to the heat, the grease, and the smell getting in the canvas. Have you used it, and did you experience anything like this?

Our old PUP had an outdoor stove top that we used a lot, and we miss especially for coffee in the morning. I had thought about selling the RVQ and buying a stove top to replace it, but I wanted to get feedback first.

TIA!

Used ours with our high wall pup for two years with zero issues with grease on the side, heat or smell issues. Bought a used one for our new camper too.

Used ours 5 years now. No grease or smell on the canvas but do get smoke in the camper if someone opens the door to go in or out (but that is part of camping). we don't really like it, ours does not heat very evenly and has rusted out the tray that goes just under the grill surface. The markings have also come off the gas control, but it got the job done. Just replaced it with a Coleman sidetrip that uses the green bottles. would rather use that where I can move it anywhere.

I had the same concerns back when we had a popup. I took the short LP hose that came with the RVQ to a local LP place and they made an 10' extension hose in about 15 minutes. I can't remember the cost but it was minimal. I rigged up the bracket that hangs off the side of the camper to sit on a small aluminum folding table.

Canvas campers are supposed to have camping smells, like from camp fires, grilling, etc. Just reminds you of past fun!

That's a really good idea, I've actually thought of that before when we looked at buying a LP campfire deal.

RVQ

I have wondered the same thing about the grease and smoke so close to the coach. Our old Viking has a 3 burner stove that we love to use outside, we have never cooked inside it. For us, if we are camping, we cook either on an outside stove or on the campfire itself. I BBQ at home on the gas grill. We have no intention of even bringing the RVQ with us when we pick up our new unit in May. I will probably divise a larger outdoor counter using the RVQ bracket to hold other things...like our Camp Chef oven!.....fresh cookies and bisquits in the morning...yum!

Used our rvq grill for 10 years with 2 different campers.
Never had an issue with any of the questions you pose.

I actually found some pics of my mod. I modified a screen door mesh to hold the RVQ bracket up. There were a few cuts needed to allow the gas line to connect. Table came from Walmart. I drilled a couple extra holes in the bottom to extend the top so the whole thing would fit.
