Outdoor grill

What a timely dicussion! Been looking at the new Coleman grills online for a week or so now because they look small and light and have a griddle. I've had a Q for about 7 years now. It used to be my home patio grill but started taking it on the road. Works well connected to any propane source. But I've taken to the small geen bottles which I find on sale at K-Mart 2/$4 sometimes. Only issue with the grill has been if I don't use it for awhile it's a little hard to light. I take the green gas bottle off to travel. Bought a Q200 and stand to replace it on the home patio. Never had a grill last this long before.

If you're just looking for function over form the Roadtrip gets it done. If you're looking for a little extra flash the Paul Jr. version of the Roadtrip is a pretty good looker.

Don't know if in your area but bigk(super Kmart) had some that function exactly like the Coleman road trip fob clearance for 38$ from 129$. Probably. A little lower quality but worth a try IMO!

I am on my 3rd year with this grill from Sams Club. Two 10,000 BTU burners. Lots of room. That said. Not for everyone in that it has to have an adapter for the small bottles or extend-a-stay. If you carry an extra bottle you are all set. I had an extend-a-stay and the adapter was not expensive. It is stainless steel. I was all set to spring on the Weber untill I looked at where it was made. I am on my second American made Weber at home. First one lasted 20 years. But at $900.00 vrs $200.00 it should. Anyway it was $99.00 and so far I am pleased.

PS. I have a $30.00 one with a pizio lighter from Wally World and it has been fine.

We like to cook outside as much as the weather will permit so we have both a propane grill (Weber Q) and a two burner stove top (CampChef Explorer). To avoid having to carry small propane tanks we had a licensed gas plumber install a gas line that tee's off of the coach tank and runs over to the curb side with an easy access shutoff valve and quick disconnect. Probably could have run this myself but the peace of mind having a pro run the lines is worth the money spent.

My last TT came with a Bar B Que mounted to the side with a short hose and quick disconnect. Worked well but I wasn't sure I liked it so close to the TT.
Traded the TT for a MH. I mounted the Bar B Que bracket on a small table and bought a 10 ft quick disconnect hose. I like the convenience of being able to move the Bar B Que around (within reason) and use the MH propane. No need to store propane bottles inside storage compartments.

I reluctantly bought a small stainless NexGrill a couple of years ago when I couldn't find a portable infrared grill. IR makes a huge difference, IMHO. I won't buy another non-IR grill for home or RV.

I prefer the grill that operates off the RV propane tank. I don' have to carry propane tanks in enclosed spaces which is dangerous.

Your RV propane tank is in an enclosed space, is it not?

The Roadtrip grill looks sexy as heck, but it has some dumb design flaws. We've got the deluxe one.

You can't close the lid with the full size griddle on it. I just hate that feature. When you fold it all up to stow it, it doesn't lay flat and rocks like a teeter-totter. I put a block of foam under each end of it when in our pass-through. You are supposed to put water in the tray below, but how are you supposed to dispose of a tray full of grease and water in a campground? When both burners on ours are turned on full, you don't get enough heat out of the burners and it takes forever to boil water with both on.

And it's got really thin pieces on it. I just don't see it lasting that long.

Our burners would not ignite out of the box and we had to return it to CW and get a new Roadtrip. The checkout guy at CW said they are crap and suggested we take a Weber as a replacement, but we kinda liked the looks of the Coleman. Live and learn......

Would we buy another. Nope. Sounds like Weber would be a good choice for a replacement. Once upon a time Coleman made great stuff and was THE name in outdoor camping equipment. What happened?

I am seriously thinking about getting the Traeger PTG. I smoke more than I grill at home and I can do both with this. I will know for sure once I get my new MH and I can figure out where I can store it.

Traeger Grills - PTG (BBQ020 )

Well .... in my case, not exactly. Can't speak about all installations but our Endeavor has the onboard LP tank in a compartment that has an open bottom. My portable 20lb. is in a compartment with a "cord port" in the bottom. In both cases it has an exit point to the outside of the coach. In both cases the cargo compartment is not locked.
