When I looked at the existing drawer I saw I could take out the cook surface with four screws and was then left with a metal drawer with no bottom or back. I cut a piece of masonite for the bottom and a piece of pine for the back and glued and screwed them together.

Then looking at how to hold it in place I realized the screws for the slide rails stick out inside the drawer, so I ripped some 3/4" x 3/4" pine strips and glued and screwed them to the sides of the masonite. I replaced the side rails screws with slightly longer screws that now screw into the 3/4" pine strips holding the insert in place.

Here is the insert being painted:

Here is the insert in the drawer:


Here is the drawer with some rubber matting in the bottom:


Here is the drawer with my grilling stuff in it:


If I ever sell the unit and the new owner wants the grill back they just remove the insert and drop the cook top back in.

Does anyone know if the 17 inch Blackstone can be fitted to go in this space?

Possibly with extensive mods, but I'm not even sure there is physically enough space for one there. I do keep my Blackstone 17"stored on the countertop above this drawer though and take it out and place it on a table to cook.

Even if it would fit it would still be a hot grill/cooking right next to the side of your camper, I wouldn't do it personally.

By the way, propane gear sells a kit so you can run the Blackstone off the rig propane. It takes out the regulator and adds a quick disconnect: https://propanegear.com/blackstone-1...t-m-f-qc-hose/

I certainly agree. Thanks very much for info on the adapter.

I do the same thing. The 17" fits perfectly on the shelf above the grill. I put pool snakes around it while traveling to prevent any damage, but it's a great place to store it when not in use.

I use the grill as a table for my coffee maker!
