I have had our Coleman Road Trip since 2013. I bought it because it fit in a basement storage compartment without any disassembly. I have room left over for a couple 1# propane containers and hoses to adapt to a 20# propane tank.
Except for cleaning after each use I have had nothing else to do to the grill.
The grill cooks well and evenly. On one occasion we cooked 14 strip steaks on the grill all at one time.
I also bought the optional griddle plates which work well for eggs or homefries or anything else you'd use a griddle for.
Yes, I would buy another Road Trip grill if the need arose.

If you full-time, determine where you are going to store it when moving then find something that can fit that space.

I got the weber Q, it's ok, but wish we had gotten the Blackstone griddle instead. If the Q gives up, or breaks, the griddle will be the replacement. I can cook breakfast on it outside so coach does not smell like bacon and eggs all day (even with fan on). Friend had the Emil countertop oven it lasted less than a year, she replaced with another brand which looks heaver and better built. We ordered the induction cooktop, have the Costco Insta Pot as well, That is enough stuff to cook with.

Nexgrill from Home Depot. About $100. All stainless. Cooked steaks, burgers, even breakfast sausages, with easily removable/clean grease pan. Comes with 20lb propane connection. Electronic ignition works every time. Does show usage, but so does the Weber, and others that I have seen at campsites.

Also, new RVs get bugs and road grime...just saying.

Weber Q2200 gas grill. Uses 1lb propane containers. Has wing tables on each side. Works as good as my Weber Genesis at home. Heats above 500 degrees. I get approx 3-5 uses from a single propane cylinder. Goes right into the compartment next to the passenger door.

I was going to recommend the Weber Baby Q, which we've owned for years, but took a look at the Blackstone everyone was talking about. That's a nice grill, very versatile. I don't use my Baby Q very often because it's a pain and takes up a lot of space. I just might be buying the smaller Blackstone and dumping he Baby Q.

I have 2 grills. A Weber Q1000 (no side tables) and a Blackstone Griddle (the single). They are compact. I mostly use the Blackstone but some food is better on a semi-open fire (like chicken). I use a Coleman table tor either,
I also carry a single burner induction cooktop and a Instant Pot. The induction is primarily for windy days and to saute (to preserve the liquid).
Everything stores on 1/2 of the tray in 1 compartment ... including a 20lb propane.

We have been using the Weber Q (electric) and can get by with it. We were hauling around the Smokey Joe and using charcoal and different things in it but since room is at a premium we ditched that. We have a grate and will occasionally do some campfire cooking.

Agree with CaptGizmo.
Have a couple of Green Mountain grills. Work great for just about anything you want to cook.
Also one of the few that actually have a wifi app that lets you adjust temps, time, etc while having a cold one inside. When very very hot or very cold outside this comes in really handy. Don't have to keep going out to check on the grill.
Remember, we are all good at something... I happen to be a good bad example.

Only because the weight of the charcoal grill once you go charcoal or pellet you will never go back

We’ve had a Coleman perfectflow grill for almost 20 years. It is obviously durable, but also compact, inexpensive, and does a great job. That said, the Blackstone griddle Looks like a great choice.

We also have a Davy Crockett smoker. It is fantastic. I added aluminum grillgrates to give us a flat surface for searing and pizza.

Here’s the Coleman grill:
