Airstream Weber Grill

I had trouble getting my old portable gas grill to heat up when I plugged into the quick connect gas outlet. I broke down and bought the Airstream branded grill for RV low pressure propane systems. It is really light except for the incredibly heavy cast iron grills. Lots of aluminum and plastic. I heated it up to burn it in before I put my filet on it. It took a little while to bring to heat but it got up to 475 before i killed it.

I will let you know how she cooks next time out. But it is a big upgrade from my old setup.

Same here. Got the Q 1100, removed the regulator and installed hardware and hoses as needed to connect to the LP port beneath/beside the battery box. Works great.

Nice! How long is the feeder hose? Can you get a reasonable distance away from the low pressure source on the AI/trailer when you grill?

These are perfect grills for light to medium duty camp cooking.

We bought the predecessor to your grill, a Baby Q, back around 2005-06. Cleaned after every trip, still lights first or second push, grate, burner and body still in excellent shape.
This is the most versatile grill I've ever owned.

I suspect if you ever sell the Airstream the grill won't be part of the package.

Bought the first one one 2007. Weber Q200 then later bought the Q100 in 2012. Found that the smaller version actually is a better fit for us. I pull the lid off to get into the storage compartment in the back of the AS. I also have the stand, which works great.

Airstream Weber Grill

Could someone post a picture of the Airstream branded Weber grill hose and connection side on the Weber?

I am not able to see the entire hose in the pictures above, thank you!

Looks like my original Weber Q xxx which has performed exceedingly well for 8 years. Id rather use it at a greater distance from the trailer, though, so the little propane bottles work for me.

Thanks for the pictures!

So the hose looks like a normal, long, quick connect hose.

Is there a pressure regulator on or built into the grill?

To use the Weber Q with a low pressure source like the external connector on an Interstate you will need to remove the built-in regulator on the Q grill. It was mentioned earlier in this thread.

It's true that the Weber models in general have a pressure regulator which makes them incompatible with the low pressure source on our Airstreams.

The idea behind the specific AS/Weber branded grill that the OP just bought is that it has no regulator at all so that it will work, without modification, with the low pressure propane source on the trailer or coach. AFAIK, this Airstream/Weber Q grill is only available from the Airstream store.
