I have one. Got a good deal at Target on sale for under $100. The rvq wasn't cutting it. We bought it after our first trip. It has only 1 control for the burners as the roadtrip has 2, 1 for each side. I feel it still performs well. We easily cook for 5 on it.

Weber Q200. Best purchase ever. We have a travel cart for it when we camp and then a larger, heavier duty cart which we use it on at home. Love that it is good enough to use as home grill too.

Bought a Nexgrill from Home Depot and love it. Mine's a little smaller that the one Larry G. described but has about all the same features. Easy to convert to quick connect for hooking up to trailer gas line. Two burners and all stainless steel. Very portable and lightweight. Costco also has one for $100.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I have had a Coleman Road Trip Classic Grill - Blue, for about 5 years and love it. I often cook for 6 or more. Some how I was elected official HOT DOG cooker for our RV club. On those occasions I can put a bunch of dogs on the grill.at one time, enough to feed 15 people. But when OI use it for steaks or hamburgers or just about anything else it has plenty of grilling space. It comes with 1 grill and I griddle but you can buy the other to match. I have a full size griddle that I use to make pancakes of hash browns.

We have the roadtrip LXE as well, and have used it for 3 years.
It works well for us.
Common Complaints I've heard and my opposite experiences:
*Hot spots and burns food - I usually have the flame turned down and haven't experienced the burning. Yes, parts of the grill are hotter but if you pay attention while cooking it has not been a problem for me.
*Gets dirty and hard to clean - I never understood this one. Yes, grease gets on the steel below the grates, but just wipe it up with paper towels and a scrubby when you are done. I thought it was easy to clean...but you DO need to clean it, and not just leave it forever.
*Can't be hooked up to low-pressure quick connect - Not true. There are several videos that show you how to do this and now even a commercial product that you can buy to do the conversion. (It is easy, and I've done it).
*Can't cook with the lid down - again, I've done this but you cannot have the burners turned up all the way when you put the lid down.

*I like the fact that I can grill meat, or make pancakes on the griddle or make soup or coffee on the stove burner. One grill that is versatile for many uses.
*As others have said, it folds down easily and I have the bag with wheels that I store it in.

I'm sure there are other grills that may be better at doing one thing (like grilling!), but this grill/griddle/outdoor stove works for me because one device does several things pretty well.

We love our Weber Q 2200! We use it for nearly everything, and Weber has always been an excellent company when we have needed service.

Not to beat it to death but I took one look at the RVQ that came with my rig, $200.00 option, and my first response was how nice!

After a couple uses my thought changed to what a piece of junk at this price.

The rv industry could do MUCH better if they were serious about a grill option.

is the grill I have, works great for the 5 of us!

When the kids get older I'm going to have to upgrade everything, including the TT!

Buy yourself a Blackstone!

If you have the space, id recommend a blackstone product! I have the 36" griddle and just this year bought the "grill box accessory" for it. It is a little pricey and I have to admit a little bulky, but I have cooked for 18-25 guys with it. You wont be disappointed! Be sure to check out Griddle Guru - Griddles, Grills, Stoves, and Ovens for more details!

Also, a couple others here have one, here is the link http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f2...dle-18027.html

Here is something that will make you sick. I saw one of those Blackstone griddles on the side of the road for the trashman last week.
