I also think that in the event you are uncomfortable with the proximity, you could fashion a metal heat shield fairly easily that would slide between the grill and camper and hang on the grill mount.

We have a reversible cast iron griddle/grill that is the same size as the grate area. I cut off the elevated "bun warmer" part of the grate with bolt cutters. By using the cast iron we don't deal at all with drippings into the grill body itself and the cast iron plate is much easier to clean, typically with just a paper towel and a little elbow grease.

The grill doesn't smell like grease and food when used this way and the cast iron stores inside the closed and locked grill when in transit.

I do take care to leave the door-side window closed when using it and this solves the potential issue of getting greasy smoke into the camper interior.

Basically these little RVQ things hard to clean, flare up, and are just a poor idea. This is why you see so many Weber Q 100s and 120s sitting on the picnic tables.

I bought a six foot quick connect gas hose so I can move the grill away from the camper. Seems like common sense to me, but to each his own.

We have a long hose also and if we don't have a table, we hang it on the side of the trailer. No problems either way. The heat does not go to the camper wall. Our wall doesn't even get warm.
