Low pressure propane grills

The Interstate has an external low pressure outlet quick connect for a propane grill. I would like to know what specific grills people are using and recommend. It's easy to find a high pressure grill but I'm having some difficulty with low pressure ones. The Weber 200 has been used on other RV blogs. I would really like a more compact grill than that.

CHARLIEOSCAR - You should look into Torjik CONVERTA•Q and Torjik CONVERTA•C. These are adapters to allow usage of Weber Q & Coleman Roadtrip LXE , both portable grills. Works, easy, last long time. May work on other grills too, but with choices between Weber & Coleman, how many more choices does one need?

Camco makes a stainless steel low pressure grill. A rail mount is available. I have used one for four years.

We use the o-grill 3000, http://www.pro-iroda.com/ogrillorder.asp.
It’s worked well for us. It was the smallest grill we could find at the time (about 3 years ago).
It does have a regulator, which you will need to remove. We found a YouTube video helpful for that. We put a quick connect fitting on it for ease of use.

How is the rail mount installed and secured on the AS? Very interested in doing the same.

I really like the O-grill.

The AI is problematic because interior stowage results in grill stink and makes your B-Van smell like a rib shack.

We needed a grill small enough to fit in our StowAway carrier with all of the rest of our outdoor gear* and the O fit the bill.

I got all ready to do the low pressure LP mods and quick connect and then realized that using the little Coleman bottle was convenient, didn't take any room, was available everywhere and is relatively cheap. So I have temporarily abandoned the project.

I also am not limited to placing the grill close to the van.



* chairs, folding table, hoses, electrical cords, tool box, door mat/rug....oh yeah and 2- 1 pound lp bottles

I also use the Olympia grill but on a foldable table, connected to the Interstate. The iron diffuser grate works pretty well at spreading out the heat. The Low setting is pretty darn high and is all I use unless I'm torching off the debris.

Here's an Amazon link to the one I bought and it has the mounting rails included https://amzn.to/2StgDDS


I let it cool down and air out with the lid open and, after putting it back in its bag and storing it under the sofa, my nose-sensitive wife and I have never smelled any residual odors.

Any portable grill will work. May need some adapters, but any will work.

There is a horizontal "rib" that runs the length of the trailer at that height. The rail does not come with the grill, but is only $3 or so. It was white powder coat. I stripped it and clear coated it. It is mounted to the rib with sheet metal screws. When the grill is off, the rail is hardly noticeable.

There is an adjustment under the knob. You can pull the knob and turn the gas flow down. At its lowest point that will stay lit in a mild breeze it is still pretty high but not as high as the way it came.

The "mount" came with mine but did not include the rail that bolts to the trailer. Mine did not have the folding legs. The mount doubled as a stand.

You can't go wrong with any of the Weber Q series, there are Youtube videos on how to remove the built-in regulators, I had the Q1000, but upgraded to the Q2200 for more grill space, great even heating. If your looking to go smaller, I'd really recommend considering just getting a gas griddle, I carry the Blackstone 17" which works great for the three of us for weekend trips, get the adapter and it hooks right up to the trailer.

I just bought a Weber Q1200 and the fittings needed to replace its low-pressure regulator with a 3/8" male flare fitting.

The grill and fittings were in stock at my local Lowe's Home Improvement Store.
Weber Q 1200 https://www.lowes.com/pd/Weber-Q-120...Grill/50330263
1/4-IN FIP x 1/8-IN FIP https://www.lowes.com/pd/B-K-1-4-in-...ing/1000505585
3/8-IN FLR x 1/4-IN MIP https://www.lowes.com/pd/B-K-3-8-in-...ing/1000506249

You can connect the modified grill to the Airstream quick-disconnect port with this unregulated hose: https://www.amazon.com/DOZYANT-Conne...oding=UTF8&me=

You can connect the modified grill to a standard 20# propane tank with this regulated hose: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Char-Broil-...-Hose/50330337

This link shows the low-pressure regulator I removed from the Weber Q1200 and the two fittings I added to it. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...ml#post2186916

I have been using the Q1000 connected directly to the trailer for years. As has been already said, you just need to remove the regulator from the BBQ, add a couple of fittings and the quick connect hose and you are good to go. Any hardware or BBQ retailer will have the fittings and hose. I have a 20' hose and a separate stand for the BBQ, as I do not want that heat anywhere near the trailer skin.
