Smile New 235S/rv owner

Experience camper, but getting to old to setup a tent camp. Really looking forward to a life of rving instead. My first of probably several posts to get the experts opinions. I am wondering where others are storing their outside griddle?

We have both a grill and a griddle which we keep in plastic under the dinette seat next to the sofa. We have a Roo 23IKSS.

WHEN WE BRING IT ALONG, the outdoor griddle lives in the outdoor kitchen, in the cubby to the left of the fridge. Most trips, however, it stays at home in the storage unit with the rest of the trailer-and-related things.

Congrats on the new 235?

Like Rumble, I keep mine in the outside kitchen. I have to separate the griddle top, from the bottom burner. The griddle top goes in the ( maybe you got one too?) Black bag with the outdoor shelf, I put those under the fridge. The burner part of the griddle I turn so the burner dial is facing the front of the trailer, and set it on the shelf under the cabinet, against the front wall of the kitchen. Stays there nicely. Unlike rumble I always bring mine,. I've used it every single cook, I love it.

We just brought home a new 233s a couple days ago. We assembled the griddle then put it back in the box. It fits nicely in the storage compartment under the dinette.

Been storing our gas grill (ours ain't a griddle) in a Coleman bag under the dinette table in transit. Hooks on the side of the camper (our Roo ain't a fancy snob high class "RV") when we get set up.

Our grill is brandless and I would not have ordered it but it was included. Figured I'd try it before trashing it. Been using it for 17 seasons. Works fine for steaks, brats, salmon, etc.

I keep getting excited to make a big ole mess o'breakfast or a big time taco bar using the griddle, but my wife reminds me we just don't eat that much.... that or a skillet outside on the outdoor burners is a lot easier to clean up. (I must admit - I do like cooking outdoors and keeping a lot of the food smells out of the trailer).

I'll have my day yet!

What are some of your go-to's to do on the griddle?

I find the clean up much easier. Only the spatula. Rest gets scraped into the little grease trap and thrown away. Wipe with a grill cleaner brush and paper towel and your done No pot or pan in the sink later.


Some go toos are: quesadillas, any sort of breakfast mix you want, paninis, smash burgers. I've done steaks, big tritips, almost anything. Wanted to try pizza the other week but didn't get around to it.

I've found it's really smaller then it looks once you start cooking on it with the single burner control. One thing I'd suggest getting is and IR temp gun so you know how hot your running. On hi it will go over 500* easy and that's way too hot for most things.
