Definitely the Weber Q120. It's the perfect size.

I've got a Vista 26P and don't have near the storage, but I carry both types of grills. The Weber Q100 and use the extend-a-stay hose and a good ole' Wally World $9.99 sheet metal charcoal grill. Best of both worlds. Order your Q through Walmart and request deliver at your nearest store and if they are doing as they used to, there is no shipping charge.

Nothing like the smell of real charcoal and the resulting taste of burgers or steak.
We have been traveling with the same Weber Smokey Joe portable grill for years.
Hint for RV use buy one WITHOUT a vent in the bottom.

We have the Baby Q 100. I added the side fold out trays and I do believe the Q120 is the Q100 with the side fold out trays. I do believe the new ones come with a temperature gage too. We have had ours for 4 years now and I bought a 5# propane cylinder for it. I have taken it apart a couple times and wire brushed the burner and power washed the inside to keep it working well and nice and clean. The burner does not have the BTU rateing that a Coleman does but it works on the principal of getting the cast iron grate real hot and it does a great job searing the steaks. When I cook fish (on a soaked cedar plank I will use a meat thermometer to indicate when it is done.

I am currently reading The "Long Long Honeymoon-Living in a Small Tin Can" written by Sean Michaels (and his wife Kristy-I hope i got the spelling correct) and they have and recommend the Weber Baby Q. If you follow the RV cooking lady (Evander?) she has a Weber Q200.

Another vote for the weber Q, with extender stay hose kit. DW loves it. That's the only thing that matters

Just a thought as I sat here after posting an earlier reply and reflected on how spoiled I've become on camp cooking and roughing it nowadays. Back many years ago, as a single parent I started camping out of an open pickup truck with a singles square dance club where most, including myself, brought ragged old home grills to the camp site and when I caught one on sale, I bought a Coleman liquid fuel stove. Thought I was in camping heaven. One of our group, who was really struggling brought a small four legged grill, dug a shallow hole, used brush and/or charcoal, and did some fine cooking in his cast iron skillets and porcelain coffee pot . I still carry a Coleman, two grills, charcoal and gas, got a stove, gas oven, convection oven, toaster oven and crock pot in addition to my cast iron skillets. Yep, I'm spoiled.

We use the Weber Baby Q and like it to the point when we get home we take it out of the RV and use it instead of the at home monster that has all those knobs on front and multi burners. Weber works best for us but get what works best for you.

Bought a Weber Q100 at CW in Oklahoma City last spring. My old,old fold up portable gas grill failed me during a family get together so I recycled it. Really like the Q!

Me too. Bought ours when we bought the coach over six years ago. The 1 lb cans are a PIA, the 20 lb tanks is too big and too heavy, the 11 lb tank is just right.

My vote would go first to the Coleman Roadtrip. Small bottle, adaptable to large bottle. It's got almost twice the btu's as the Weber Q100/120 or even the Q200/220. It also has 3 different types of grates available for it. A standard grate with porcelain coating for normal grilling. A flat griddle for frying or doing things like pancakes, and a stove grate for placing pots/pans on it. Good for heating up a pot of something or frying up bacon in a pan when you don't want the grease spatters in the mh kitchen. The higher btu's help with boiling and cooking. It's also very easy to remove the grates and cover the under area with foil for easier clean up after cooking burgers, about the greasiest and most flame producing things you'll cook. I also like the slide out trays on each side, which give quite a good area for setting tools, plates, etc. Then after it's been used it folds up fairly compact to go underneath.

I won't say a bad thing about the weber. They're great products and it would be my 2nd choice, it's just not as versatile in my opinion.

We've had our Coleman for a year and a half and it performs very well and still looks pretty good. It's seen some heavy use with tailgating and camping. It's like a Timex.

We have a 2 burner camp chef stove also. Large bottle. Purchased from Costco 10 years ago. We bought a large Lodge Logic cast iron griddle for it so it can double as a grill when necessary and it works well too. It's got 3 times the btu's of the Coleman, so it's good if a planned meal is going to be a spaghetti feed where a large pot of water needs to be boiled.

Hope my info is helpful in making a decision.

I use a weber Q220. I've had it up to 500 degrees while searing steaks. I also tried to use it as a burner for cooking bacon outside in a pan resting on the grate, that didn't work well at all. With the lid up it doesn't do well.
