Well, at first I did not like my Jayco grill. Of course, I had never used it before, and burned everything. Then I played with it little more and got used to it's quirks, (just like any grill).
This Labor day, I made some rally tasty salmon on it, and by the response of the folks eating, I scored a victory.
If you are grilling for a LOT of people, then this is not for you. Heck, even those Webers don't have a lot of surface space. I can throw about 6 burgers onto mine. Need more space than that? Then get a bigger one.
For my wife and I , the Jayco cheapie will do just fine. Perhaps I will get something else in the future when I have $200 to throw around.

Outside grill

I actually didn't heed the warnings, and purchased the "sidekick" grill from an Amazon supplier.

Knowing full well the '32 doesn't have any wall space to hang it, so I knew i'd be doing the bumper mount.

Unfortunately the ladder is on the right of the TT tail, which put the swing arm out of the picture.

So I'm still working on a DIY mount for it. I've mounted a bumper mounted receiver hitch, and am working out a shank solution.

The grill does OK as a table mount, and it does use the low pressure connection, but it isn't the best grill i've ever used.

I'm thinking of snipping off the warming rack, it's always in the way for me.

And one of the latches' springs broke on the first day. So it's not heavy duty.

I'm too committed now to give up.

I too wouldn't have bought it as an option but once I started using it we use it for breakfast cooking instead of heating up the inside of camper, we started this year using it for our oven too when its hot outside so we keep the camper cool. It works great for baking potatoes or doing our breakfast bake

Our old hybrid came with a RVQ, and it was okay, but not great. Uneven heat and lots of flare-ups. When we were talking to our dealer when buying our Jayco, he said that the grills that come with them aren't great, and they don't even offer them, but would order one if we wanted. He recommended saving our money and getting a real grill, which we did when we got our Weber Q1000. Once modded to run off the trailer's propane system, there's no looking back.

Hey north, did you also fab up a bracket? Looking back, my whole desire for the grill was to use the low pressure gas and use the bumper to support it, thus saving yet another table that needs setting up.

The way I look at it, I could take the $200 I spent for the RVQ and add it to a little more and get a great grill instead of a boat anchor!

I got one with my rig and had no choice either.

The RVQ on our hybrid came with its own bracket, and with the Weber and 10' of hose, that's usually enough to reach the picnic table. If not, we have an aluminum folding table we bring and sometimes use.

If you want an RVQ style then I would go this route since the grease actually has a place to go and tray to catch it.

That's a nice looking grill. It's a little on the spendy side but if the spacing for the bracket and stand is the same as the one shipped by Jayco, I'd consider it in the future as a replacement.

It would be nice to see a company like Weber produce a quality product for the RV industry. I suppose in the big picture the market just isn't there for them to justify it.

Check target stores. We scored a weber q1200 for 99 bucks. Just have to figure what's needed to run it from my camper propane line. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think there is a way I can do this using the regulator from my attached grill that came with the camper?
