What do ya want to know? In a perfect world, maybe there could be a hookup and then both a grill and cooktop supplied. Owner can use one or the other at the same time, or separate with owner supplied splitter and hose? I don't use a gas grill when camping, only charcoal or my pellet grill/smoker.

Or this? I don't like the tv setup in the outside kitchen. For us it's not practical and takes cabinet space. The grill and stove combo will be perfect and to be able to exchanged griddles tops will be a plus!

I personally like the Weber Q....Used one for years. Would be nice to see it over the flimsy camp stoves offered on lots of outdoor kitchens.

another vote for the Weber Q. MUCH better quality than the tin can grills that come with campers.

We love the outside cook top that Puma and Sabre already use. That was the BIGGEST thing that we looked for in getting another camper.

We also liked the sidekick or whatever the brand was that you could order on Pumas.
We used both on a daily basis while camping.

If you can't have both, keep the cook top please, grills are easier to add on!

Weber Q200. Current cooktop just needs something to hold lid up, could stand to be a bit wider, and it melts the plastic that it's mounted in. Pics in my sig show my added quick connect and Weber Q200 retrofit.

Both !
Our 32bhok came with the cook top.
I added a hang on rvq grill.
Use them both every trip.

I like the bumper swing out grill.

Probably going to make one this spring if I can get oc to engineer one and send me the cad drawings.

Weber Q here, but I don't want it on the trailer. To messy/smoky. I like being able to set the grill away from the camper.

I don't like the idea of grilling less than a foot from camper. Use my Weber Q on the optional folding stand.

I am thinking about pulling the cooktop out of the compartment on the side, moving the divider under the bunk to make the compartment deeper and carrying one of these in the nice bag they sell, I'll need to figure out how to use the existing gas connection to fuel it so I don't have to carry an extra bottle with me. Of course this requires me to pull it out and set it up when I want to use it but I've been in some sites where I had to use a step stool to use the grill that slides out.

I have the bumper grill that goes with our outdoor kit. Don't think I will ever use it. I would not have bought it but it came with the camper. propane burners in the kit? I could leave it or take it, one burner, two at the most.

I have always used a separate outdoor grill/burner with a spare 20lb propane tank.

I like the pull out stove- we use it fairly often. I do want to change the wind deflectors to put chains on them to open up the space somewhat.

I'd love a bumper mount grill with multiple grill options - I prefer charcoal for grilling but I know most like a LP grill. That said, the fold out arm on the QB needs to be double-jointed to make it past the slide.

And! I'd like for the grill to be able to live back there while we travel. Right now my cheap $20 Walmart grill takes up precious basement space.

Ditto. I added a second LP coupler at the back so I can run the Q and the cook top at the same time from the "big" bottle.

I mentioned this in another post but I would like to see a slightly bigger cook stove on the OK as most griddles I have used are a little too big and cover the burner controls. Plus the wind cover is a little flimsy and needs some sort of support if you want to flip it out of the way for cooking with bigger pots.

I mostly use the cooktop and have a separate grill I set up a little further from the RV that will run on the smaller camp style LP tanks. I had a bumper grill on my older RV and even though I used it, it was a pain to set up and especially to clean!
