We opted to get the Weber Q-Grill (gas). It utilizes the small gas cylinders. We wanted the option of having the grill detached from the coach and not using the on-board propane. Having the flexibility to use the grill on a picnic table or small grill table away from the coach was a consideration. I was not comfortable having the grill mounted to the side of the vehicle. Heat and normal grill flare-ups could potentially damage the vehicle paint was my thought. Mount brackets screwed into the side of the vehicle could also be a source of rust in the long run.

I have a coleman raodtrip grill... I like that it uses the little gas canisters and it grills well but it uses up too much space. I really only need something half the size

Wow at today's values - yes I wish I still had it. Mine was in the #3 category as it had a later model 911 engine. I bought it in 1997 and sold it in 2002 for what I paid for it. It was a very fun car to drive, but at some point I realized it was just an old car.

We like the O Grill. Smallest propane grill we could find, easy to store in the Interstate. Runs on the propane canisters, but we chose to remove the regulator and run off the onboard propane.

914's were probably the most basic of all Porsche's. No frills, very light and responsive as hell. While the Boxster follows the same basic premise, it is far from being a basic car. Lots of fun as well.

I have a 1967 Porsche 912 but with a 1983 911 motor. It is also lots of fun which I will learn again next week when it emerges from the body shop where I am having it painted. The values of these all early 911's and 914-6's have skyrocketed in the past five years. Hopefully I share in that when I sell the '67.

Here is a pic of it from about a month ago at the body shop just after it was painted its original color, Polo Red. I have a set of the original steel wheels with hubcaps that will go back on the car when I have it back home.

We wanted something that sears well, like our gas grill at the house that has an "infrared" feature, so researched grills and found our Charbroil Grill 2 Go. We highly recommend this grill - uses the small propane tanks, but cooks at very high temperatures. Got ours at Camping World, and cost was very reasonable with online pricing.

I've tried a few different stove/grill options for the Interstate. To hook up to the low pressure propane outlet, I bought a Camp Chef Ranger II Table Top Stove. It was rated the hottest and most durable in my research. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LWIAPA/...332200_TE_item. I connected it via their RV hose, which you can buy here: Camp Chef RV Connection Hose | Amazon.com: Outdoor Recreation. It easily fits under the lounge in the back and puts out a really strong flame. I carried around a cast iron grill plate to grill on it, but used it more as a stove. I was generally happy with it, but it seemed like overkill since I really only needed one burner.

My next purchase was the volcano. I liked it too. I never used the propane option, but used the charcoal option. It works well. Ultimately, it went in my garage because I found cleaning it was a bit more work than I wanted. I also didn't want to carry charcoal. The volcano and the charcoal take up a fair amount of room under the lounge. If I cook on charcoal, this is the one I'll use. It's worth noting they do have a propane hookup, but most people said it was weak and not worthwhile.

My final purchase was the Iwatani 35FW Portable Butane Stove Burner, which can be found here: Amazon.com: Iwatani Corporation of America 35FW Portable Butane Stove Burner: Kitchen & Dining. I gave up on trying to connect to the Interstates propane outlet since most of those grills/stoves were large. Instead, I tried to find a small, portable stove that doesn't take up much room and burns hot. After a lot of research, I settled on this one and have been very happy. It's very small, efficient, and burns hot but can simmer. I'm pretty happy with it.

The last thing I bought, but for other reasons was the Campfire in a Can. In Texas, a lot of parks have burn bans so I thought this would be a good alternative. I love a real campfire so was skeptical that I'd like it. However, I've been pleased mostly due to how simple it is. It produces a strong flame and doesn't consume a lot of propane. I can easily turn it on or off without worrying about a mess. It fits under the lounge and comes with a grill rack so you can technically grill over it, though, I'm not sure the heat would be even across the rack. I bought this quick connect valve (http://www.amazon.com/Camco-59853-Pr.../dp/B007HG7TFO), which had the parts I needed to connect it to the low pressure propane outlet on the Interstate.

I have only used my volcano 3 with propane and it gets plenty hot. I usually run it on the lowest setting possible as the 'volcano' wraps around the pot. I also have the collapsible hood. It is great for dutch oven cooking as well as grilling. One of the reasons that I purchased this grill is so I would not have to carry charcoal, but could have a campfire with wood if desired when a fire ring was not available.

Happy Hunting,
Kate

I found that the "white" mounting rail is actually exuded aluminum. I used a small propane torch to heat it up to remove the white paint with a wire brush. I then polished the aluminum on a buffing wheel and sprayed it with a coat of "clear Rustolium". It now matches my AS!!

BBQ Mounitng Options.

After striping the BBQ mounting rail, I attached it to the second rung of my rear rack. Works great. I had tried to figure out where to mount the BBQ rail to the side of the AS, but could not find a convenient place where there were "studs" close enough together to provide a solid mounting point.

(PS: as noted in a different post, I fabricated the rear rack out of some solid ZIP DEE bar stock and brackets directly from ZIP DEE. The Rack is also the mounting point for my bike rack.)

Based upon your photos of your AI with its grill mount, I have purchased the same grill & mounting system. If you attached the aluminum bar, did you use a backing plate?
