outdoor stove, or work table I can mount to the side of the camper

My camper has the connection for the propane grill and the rail to mount it to, but I would never use that grill, that so I didn't get it.
But I would like to see if I can find a stove, like a pop up stove that I can attach to that rail, or a little work table to put stuff on.

Has anyone done anything like this?

I haven't but I saw at a campground where a guy built a sweet work table that attaches to the stove rail on the side of the trailer. Basically an outdoor kitchen thing.

There is a table that I bought a couple of years ago that I love. It is card table sized and it folds together smaller than a bag chair.

Or

I bought one of these for $210. It works very well.

I should do something like that myself. Both my trailers came with the outside rail mounted propane grilles and I have never opened the boxes.

I use my Coleman ROAD TRIP blue grill at the rail location next to my trailer door and usually have a folding bag table next to it. I could probably modify the rail slide into a small table but really the wood fold-up bag table does just great. Its a shame not to ever use the propane grill that came with the trailers however...

If you make too comfortable outside you might get an uninvited guest...

I have a X23B and I had a similar issue with my grill. I didn't like the one that came with the trailer because it was more of a grill than a stove top. I wanted individual burners so that I could put pots/pans on them. I ended up doing most of the cooking indoors on the stove top even though I wanted to be outside. I couldn't find anything good that could attach to the rails, but I bought a stand alone two burner stove from Camp Chef that connects to the TT's propane (need to buy proper hose). I love it. I use it all the time. I bought a cast iron griddle for it. I put the griddle on one side, to do pancakes, steaks, etc and I leave the other burner for pots and pans. Here's a link to the two burner outdoor stove.

KillbearCamper,
I really like those big campchef stoves, but they weigh a ton if they are the same ones I am thinking of. I keep saying I want one, but then I think about packing it away in the truck or camper, and decide not to do it. I don't really like to cook inside if I don't have to. I guess I will use my Coleman two burner propane for stuff in pots, and coffee. I do a lot of cooking over charcoal when we camp. I have even done turkeys over charcoal in the past. They come out great. I think the RV companies are missing some sales not offering a stove you can attach to the rail.

Maybe it me, but I am just not interested in attaching something that gets that hot to and you purposefully set on fire to the side of my camper.

I think an inside stove has a degree of fire hazard with it as well as an outdoor stove, maybe more since your more closed in.

It is around 40-50 lbs. I just fold it up and put it in the trailer. It is defintely bigger than colemans, but it can cook a lot. This weekend, I made breakfast on it. I had a bunch of peameal on the griddle, put the beans in a small pan on the corner of the griddle and then I used the other burner to make omelettes. At night, I flipped over the griddle (from the flat side) to the grilling side and I made steaks, grilled zucchini and grilled tomatoes. I like cooking steaks over the fire too, but a lot of times it is really tough to control the heat in the camp fire to get a good sear and then slow down the cooking when you just need to finish the steaks. I can also put all the stuff I need on the fold down trays (S&P, paper towels, spatulas, plates, etc.). Overall, I really like what I can do with it and the weight issue only comes into play twice each trip - taking it out and packing it up.
