So you would carry one of each?

I had both at my sticks n bricks. I understand the reasoning behind it. Gas is easy, charcoal adds more flavor and is more fun IMO

After camping awhile you might find that you actually use much fewer items than you have packed. I have been getting rid of superfluous items in order to make space for thing I buy on sale: bottled water, soda, paper towels, soap. Winter clothes take up a lot of space, so I layer my clothes for colder weather.

Hello Tebrock....Congratulations on your new rig..... Something we have done for awhile is keep a small (6") spiral notebook in the MH. In it i keep a constant diary of mileage; generator use; locations where we camp; ups and downs of the locations/campgrounds/areas and at the same time if there is something I want to either put new in the unit or something that has to be replaced I have a easy to access record. I also put (on the back side of the pages) any maintenance done (i.e. oil changes/battery checks etc). Hope this helps... bill

We carry the smaller Weber (Baby Q), it's all we've needed. We bought it at Lowe's along with their hose conversion kit to use a 20lb propane bottle. We use ours quite often, so those weenie little bottles aren't an option. It has a little drip pan with a disposable aluminum insert. I'm really cheap and line those with foil and just throw that away every time I use the grill. We did NOT buy the optional portable grill stand, to save storage space...picnic tables work great and the grill will not burn the table. I'm also pretty lazy, so I'm not willing to deal with the charcoal mess. Weber is pretty proud of their grills, but in this case...worth the cost. Bob

Yes, I would, and still might even with the big one. The little Weber Smokey is very light weight and doesn't take up much room. Sometimes you just gotta have a charcoal grilled burger or steak, ya know?

Consider what kind of camping you will do. If at campgrounds most of the time, use their electricity and pack electric pots, pans, grills, crock pot, etc. If boondocking is your thing, pack outdoor cooking utensils and stoves.

With the rig you have you might consider a tow vehicle too. We pull a small pickup truck that will carry a spare tire and other things you may want to take. DW loves using it for additional closet space for hanging clothes and shoes.

Happy travels in your new rig.

When you are out camping or trying out all your systems, be patient and read the manuals. I found many times when I thought the coach was was because I was not operating the system correctly. Once I fixed what I was doing wrong, all worked well.
