Storing a small bbq grill

I have made the decision like many to downsize from my 36' DP to a class B
a couple of things i haven't figured out is which if any bbq grill can you take along and where to store it? I was thinking about possibly a receiver box or platform off the rear but may carry a bike rack so that may not work..

I know I have to give some things up but grilling is a favorite past-time...

Thoughts....

Thanks

I have a small class c. I bought a hitch carrier from Harbor Freight and an "Action Packer" box (Rubbermade) that I bolted to the hitch carrier. I can fit a Weber Q120 grill and some firewood inside the locking box. I put two folding chairs in protective bags (from CW) on top of the box. I think I got the Action Packer from Target.com.

I am right there with you, I love to BBQ and would never consider not having my little one with me.

My old TT had very little storage so I put an alum. hitch carrier on the back (harbor freight had it but got it $40 cheaper, free shipping, on eBay).

A lot of these hitch carriers, also have this thing you can add onto it to also make it a bike carrier. Put the bike on, close to the rig, and then your other items on the rack after that. I, too, used a tuff container (bolted down) to put things in that I didn't want to 'disappear' when I was stopped.

If that does not work for you, there are pass through hitches that allow you to have both the bike carrier and the hitch carrier. I checked into them but decided to only have the hitch carrier.

Why not carry a small grate and cook over a fire? I have a class A and keep a grate in the storage for that purpose.

Camping World sells a rolling suitcase type carrier for the Weber Q series. It's padded and zops around the grill. You can tie it down with a bungee in a stow-bin.

With a Class B, you might not have the space. I'm thinking of getting one for my Q-220, along with a clamp ring for a 20lb propane bottle that I can bolt down in the cargo bay.

Check the boating people. Nearly every sailboat over 20' has a small grill which clamps onto a railing. I'm sure that could be adapted to a cargo carrier or some other part of your gear.

I just pick up all stainless steel travel gas grill that easily fit in our TT rear storage. I carry 20 lb gas for now until I can tap into TT gas lines. Look at SAMs. 99 bucks.

Throw out anything and everything so you have room for a Weber Baby Q...
