Everyone is different, but we use our outdoor grill for at least one meal a day weather permitting. I usually cook the meat and sometimes vegetables outside and my wife usually cooks rice, potatoes and such inside.

You are asking about grills and people above are showing pics and discussing griddles. These are two different things for different purposes. So, I'm not sure what you're asking about ...

I have the older grill, not the griddle that they're including now (and pictured above). I used mine once to try it out. I found it a bit lacking in build quality and the heating was uneven. I much prefer to use my free-standing Camp Chef Pro 60X.

I'm also not a huge fan of cooking things right on my camper wall ... particularly aromatic and greasy foods (bacon, sausage, etc.). Again, I much prefer a free-standing solution.

Our TT came with a propane grill that hangs from the side of the trailer. I have no idea what brand it is or what it looks like. It is still in the box it came in.

My griddle pictured above is used 2-3 times per week just as my Weber Q grill was used 2-3 times per week. We have never used our grill/griddle next to our sidewall. Normally it is outside of our awning footprint so as to eliminate grease on the walls or awning. This is our first year with the Blackstone griddle. While it is certainly more versatile than the the Weber Q I still like the Weber for small items like burgers and brats.

We cook outside on the grill almost exclusively. I even use it to heat my cast iron griddle for breakfast (scrambeled eggs, pancakes, etc.).

I use the one that came with my TT just about every trip, and several times during.

Works great for the price. Not a fancy cast body, just tin but it cooks my steaks, burgers, or brats.

On the initial outing it didn't heat well but once I removed the kink from the hose under the TT it worked fine.

Like I said, nothing fancy but it works.

I was referencing the Griddle that FR includes with purchase. Sorry for the mistype. Looks like the griddle gets use by a lot of folks for a variety of things. Removal from away from the side of the trailer seems like a good idea if you were going to fry anything greasy.

The grill FR provided with my trailer is a piece of crap and embarrassment of the Coleman brand. So I went and got my own 2 burner table top gas grill.


I grill all year long, diehard Weber fan at home. Snow, rain, nothing stops me.


Griddle frying and grilling are 2 different animals. I like open flame grilling. I have frying pans for the other stuff. Kind of like your preference for McDonald's or Burger King. I'll take flame broiled over fried any day.


This is the grill FR included: https://www.forestriverforums.com/fo...ll-197842.html

When I bought my two V-lites they came with grills I said keep them and give me credit for them. Nothing but a fire hazard in my opinion. I use a charcoal grill set out a way from camper. I use it for every meal that I cook at camp ground. Later RJD

You have to realize that the griddle is a very recent change. Previously for years, it was a bbq grill not a flat top griddle.

We traded the the dealer the crappy bbq grill that came with the trailer for two rocking lawn chairs. SCORE!
We already had our Weber Q.

We have a grill that came attached to our bumper and it worked okay, but not great. It rusted through after about two months, so we replaced it with our LL Bean O Grill (like the Weber) that we have had for over 10 years. We also have a 17" Blackstone Griddle that is freestanding and will find it's home once the camping season gets underway.

The griddle that came with our Rockwood looks pretty cheap. The tech during our delivery had major troubles lighting it. It’s engineered to hang on a rail on the exterior of the trailer. I’m afraid it will flare up and damage the gel coat or splatter grease and discolor it.

We don’t intend to use it but love our Blackstone flattop. It’s essentially the same thing only a lot nicer. It was a kit purchased at Walmart including stand and hood. I’m going to buy a hose to connect to our trailer propane bottles. We used it in our previous TT with the small green propane canisters and love it. I like the char and ability to cook a lot of different things together. It’s different than the Coleman road trip grill which I also really like. The flattop is easier to clean no doubt.

Our plan is to continue to use both. We cook almost exclusively outside to keep the heat and mess to a minimum. We’re not full timers but we cook outside on the flattop or grill every meal.

Been camping my whole life. But have had my own camper since 2012. Finally bought a two burner camp chef two years ago. Not sure why it took me so long to get one. Always used little stoves and cheap bbqs and got by. My camp chef is probably the best purchase I have ever made for camping. Will never go without ever.
