Just an fyi-- the RVQII grill, mounted on the outside rail is furthur away ( ABOUT 12") from the tt than the combustable surfaces that the inside gas stove is close too. The side of the tt doesn't evan get warm. Larry

I imagine that teams of lawyers were consulted before Jayco put the gas connection and the mounting rail on the side of the camper.
The people who make the grills, probably had their own lawyer meeting.
It would be interesting to find out if they did any worst case scenario testing to see what would happen.

I believe that grills that mount to your sidewall are safe.
But I wouldn't believe a team of lawyers about anything.

I agree. But I still bet they made sure the lawyers thought it wasn't something that would get them sued by people who burned their campers to the ground cooking a few burgers.

I made a work table like I think you are describing, but I don't have the trailer any longer or a good picture of it. Our dealer's parts department sold me the aluminum piece that fits on the stove and is used to mount it to the side of the trailer. I remember it as being $5 and change. It predrilled for the stove, but those holes worked well for attaching a homemade table (basically finished pine boards). The table is supported by a piece of conduit that sized for level and crimped to fit the existing bracket. The total cost was less than $15. It was very useful for cooking with electric appliances, and handy outside storage otherwise.

It's probably the same thing mcfarmall saw, only a simpler version.

It looks like I'll build something. I called my dealer to get the rail I need to match up the the rail on the camper. I'll mount that to the table I'll make, someday soon I hope.

Just reading about the steaks in the fire. We love that, also we do thick cut bacon over the fire. You wont want bacon any other way after this. We use a tripod with a round rack to cook over the fire. You can adjust the rack close to or far away from fire depending on the heat you want. We get people looking at ours every trip we take, should start selling them on the campsite, could make a lot of money. I think outdoorworld.com has them for about $30-40. Definately a must for campfire cooking. Ours is so used after 3 years we need to replace the rack.

I used to have one of those. I used to use it to cook a turkey. I would put the turkey on the grate, and then wrap the 3 chains in foil, making a chimney. Then use charcoal briquettes to cook the turkey raising or lowering it as needed. It used to come out GREAT!
I didn't like it for other things thought because it moves around when trying to pick up or move things on the grate. The grate was getting bad so I got rid of it.

This is our solution. The original Vitco stove was long gone when we bought the trailer second hand.

The grill is small, but there are only two of us most of the time. I have cooked for up to 5 people on it though.

The shelf is a wire rack from Home Depot and uses the standard brackets to hold it up. The brackets are attached to vertical strips of aluminum that run between the trim strip and the track Jayco supplies for the stove. We always turn off the ball valve under the trailer when done cooking.

The stove was $95 from Sears but CW sells it for $120. The shelf cost was about $15. It works well, is easy to store and light weight. Leave the ends of the support rods a little long and they make a handy place to hang utensils and pot holders.
