We just bought a 2022 HW277 that came with the Elite griddle. We left the Elite griddle in the box and bought the Blackstone 22" Adventure griddle along with a 12' LP extension. We have used Blackstone's at home for many years with no intention of changing to some other brand. Hope that helps

My TT came with the Coleman on a slide out. I got a 17" Blackstone and thought I could just replace the Coleman with that. After getting it; I don't think existing slide out will support the weight of Blackstone. Didn't actually test it out. But, they are quite heavy compared with the Coleman.

I'm really eyeing this thing:

I like that it can mount on the outdoor rail or not have to.

Just not a fan of having it attached to the RV. When the grease splatters on the side of the RV it removes the wax and finish.
Iíve seen types that mount to the bumper and swing away preventing possible grease splatter on the side of the RV.
But everyone has their preference.

I guess that means that most of us are "vintage" too.

We use a portable 17" Blackstone and a bag table to set it on.

Love it can cook eggs/ bacon, pancakes, burgers steaks, fresh vegtables, chicken, grilled sandwiches, even grilled cheese, stir fry and so much more.

Only problem with mounting any griddle to that outside rail is you'll get a good coating of oil and grease on your exterior RV wall right behind it. They just don't make the arms long enough, in my opinion. I do have an RVQ grill that has the same C-channel mount, but it at least has a lid to keep the side of the RV cleaner than without it.

I bought one of these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 to help with this problem. It does a great job keeping the table it sits on relatively clean. There's still oil and grease to wipe up, but not nearly as much without it. It also works great keeping the griddle hot in windy conditions.

Thank you all for the replies, I didn’t think about grease or splatter on the side. I was planning on making a wind / splatter guard similar to the one that comes on the Coleman.

We were using the coleman roadtrip grill the last 6 years.. Last year It stopped working and we got a 22" blackstone with stand on sale.. We really like it.. Its a bit heavier but more versatile we think..Of course when we cleaned out our garage earlier this year and dug it out we were going to toss it and my oldest son got the bright idea to go on utube... Well torn apart the dang thing now works! Spiderwebs in the gas line/tubes..So now we sometimes switch which one we r taking..

Also looked at that that griddle. The only downside for me was that it is Teflon coated. Was concerned about the durability, saw some reviews where the coating started coming off

I suggest you get a table top version of the Blackstone. They are essentially a big frying pan and you’ll get a fair bit of splatter cooking some foods on them so I wouldn’t want grease splatter hitting the side of the trailer, especially the canvas on a popup.
