Tex-CD, We have a Coleman Road Trip and it's really Great, easy to carry and hook up, you will need an adapter to connect to you quick connect on your Toy Hauler.

Such a silly question..... Everyone knows... it's the "Q" ... the Weber "Q" and "Baby Q"

Don't fall for fancy stuff that doesn't work... The object is to cook your food and do it well... thats what the Weber "Q" does.

Getting the right parts can be tricky as not all quick connects are the same. If your female disconnect on the rig is a Cast Products No.829001, then the matching male connect can be found here along with hoses of various lengths:
Mobile > RV > Accessories > Hose Assemblies - Bailey's Wholesale

I ordered the male fittings (829120) and the 96" hose (826596). A lady named Christy Archer at Bailey's was very helpful. Her direct number is 574-970-1877. Some fittings are available at Camping World. Just be sure they are exact matches.

Keep in mind that the gas coming from the quick connect on your rig will already be regulated. If you run the gas through the regulator on your grill, you will be unhappy with the low output. On many small grills, the valve is integral to the regulator. I use a Thermos Grill-2-Go where the burner valves are separate and downstream from the grill regulator. When I use the grill connected to the quick connect on the rig, I don't use the grill regulator and get the correct heat output.

I had to splice hoses with multiple fittings to to get the configurations I wanted. I took the hoses and fittings to a local propane guy to make sure everything got done correctly.

Weber Q 200

A year or so ago I found the Weber Q200 on sale. I don't remember where. It is large enough to cook 2 racks of ribs at a time.

I carry a 20 lb LP tank for the grill as most of our cooking is slow and low.

The two side trays that fold into the cover for storage are very handy.

I have the baby Q-- great grill, but I don't think it's big 'nuf for racks of ribs. we also have the 300 at the home place.

I've added a temperature guage to my Baby Q, just like the larger ones---

I have a BROILKING Porta Chef. It is made in Canada and sold at Camping World. Bought it several years ago for $150, which I thought was a little spendy. It is rather small, has detachable legs and comes with a storage/carry bag. Only has one heating element but plenty big enough for a big rack of ribs. I have cooked six burgers at one time with room to spare. Also has a rack for corn on the cob or other such items. Also, this is the big feature, it is the hottest BBQ I have ever seen. I don't remember what the BTU rating is but, believe you me, this baby cooks. The added feature is it comes apart easy and fits in a bag for storage.
