IrishCampRV: Good choice on the RV. Ours was very well designed and built, light as well via thoughtful design elements. It even had a metal underbelly! to protect the underside. I got that undercoated with a foamy paint for some added insulation!

R-Vision is the manufacturer of the trailer... lots of mergers and acquisitions going on in this industry... almost predator and prey type environment.

Here is an interesting article and the website is great too:
RUSTIC is good.

Grills are an interesting topic. If you have the propane quick connect on the trailer a standard gas grill will not work. Problem is the gas feed on a trailer is at a regulated pressure. The small grills that use disposable bottles have their own regulator. You can get adapters to make this work but the pressure will be so low nothing will cook. So be prepared to spend more money than you thought for a grill and hose that will hook up.

Frankly all the manual folders or bags that the buckets of bolts assemblers give ya is just the manuals of the stuff they put in the rig if lucky if not just some generic manuals for the barnd of microwave, water heater, AC and such. There is no wiring diagram or logic diagram for the water system and such one has to logically think it out and experiment as one goes. Watch some youtube videos on how to flush the fresh water tank, fill it from a garden hose and or via the water connection and stuff like that. Oh yea and how to winterize, maintain the water heater the fridge etc. None of that is in a manual logically built. I have purchased more than a dozen RVs brand spanking new and have not really gotten a manual that was detailed and enlightening as to how and what for of the particular unit.

My best RV was way back in 1989 based on a fuel injected 6 cyl toyota truck. If had a manufacturing defect so I took it back to the manufacturer who was kind enough to give us a rig for a week. When we came back they went over the operation of each and every system which we audio recorded and took pictures of pertinent stuff. After we got home we built a manual for the unit. The electrical system had the advanced process of auto failover switching from campground power to generator and such. The water system was set up with bypass of water heater and a place to hook a low pressure hose to completely flush the water lines by opening them to drain the water after returning from camping.

Ah well. Long story short Trail light has a generic manual process not a unit and systems specific one. Surf the internet for break fix info and videos for specs and operations and such. All the best enjoy your rig.

You can use almost any grill as long as you can remove the regulator and still have functionality. Lots of grills have a regulator that screws in and can be replaced by a hose that connects to your on board propane supply. The changeover does make the grill specific to your rig as it will not function when hooked up to a tank as the regulator is needed for that.
