Sorry, I had one. Used it twice, hated it so much i got rid of it. I'd caution you to think twice if you haven't seen one. I couldn't keep from spilling the water.

Could have fooled me I think it looks great from that picture and I would have ordered one and I'm not even looking for a grill.

We traded up to the red LXE. It cooks well and cleans up easier IMHO.

Weird. It has really good consumer reviews, better than some reviews on the webers. What did you hate about it? Thanks for your input.

I too hated the Coleman Roadtrip.

Why--

- impossible to keep clean
- very little headspace between grill/griddle and top of lid. Basically you had too cook with the lid open, which became problematic for certain foods.
- the slightest of wind caused serious heat loss and uneven heat.
- lots of pieces, had milk crate of greasy griddles, grates, hoses.

I am grill/bbq guy. At this time I have 7 differs bbq/grills/smoker and this one just didn't work how I wanted it too. I wanted a gas grill to keep in the TT at all times. Between not being able to clean it and all the pieces it had to go.

Replaced it with a Weber Q200. I don't have the griddle accesories, but use a cast iron pan on the grates which works well for me.

I was looking at the Weber, then came across this one, so I thought I'd ask on here. good to know about the clearance between the lid and grill, that's the issue i am having with my current one.

Coleman states that its not designed to cook with the top down.

We have the Roadtrip and it fits nicely in the front storage area in our TT however the points Clubhouse made are valid ones.We've found that lining the bottom inside of this grill around the burners etc..with aluminum foil catches the grease and makes it easy to clean by just removing the foil when done. All in all we like it for grilling some stuff like burgers and dogs and using the griddle for frying peppers,onions,bacon and eggs but for steak,chicken etc... the Weber is the way to go.

I love my Coleman grill. Its a slightly different model from whats pictured above. It does exactly what I was hoping it would do.
