U dont want a grill that attaches to the side of the trailer.My brother-in-law has a SOB it came with a brand new grill in the box and the brackett was already attached to the side and a gas outlet there also.
He liked to have never gotten the spattered grease off that white painted aluminium.He said now he know why it was still in the box.
What U have done is a great idea.LOOK MA NO GREASE ON THE ALUMINIUM.

This thread is kinda old, but just in case someone is still looking for a cool outside propane grill, I picked this p today at my local "Megalomart" for $20 on clearance. It's pretty shiney but I think I need to exercise the old Cyclo.

Always keep the shiney side...shiney and up!

Do I see this right? The tee is installed after the pressure regulator at the trailer? Will that give me enough pressure for my grill? And my grill has a regulator too...

Before the Regulator for Me...

I installed our T between the tank and the regulator. So it's on the high pressure side. I use a short flexible hose with a valve and quick-disconnect. This allows me to hook up a 50' hose and route the LP almost anywhere. At the end of the 50' hose I connect the portable fire pit and/or the grill. You could use a variety of fittings to run any number of appliances.

Be sure to LP rated hoses and fittings. Don't do it yourself unless you have experience with high pressure fittings, regulators, etc.

I bought my parts via the web at I called them and described what I wanted to do. They sized the hose based on distance and how many BTU's of appliances I would be running at one time.

At the end of the camping trip I turn off the valve shown hanging under the tanks at the front of the trailer and run the appliance until the LP is "drained" from the line. Then it's safe to disconnect all the lines and store the hoses and fittings until the next use.

The valve and quick disconnect shown hanging under the tanks can be coiled and stored inside the tank cover for traveling.

cat heater inside

They make vented cat heaters for use inside trailers and motor homes. I have one and it works great. Much more efficient than my furnace, but I have been told that I should use it while everyone is awake. Use the furnace at night as they are safer from leaking propane even as the fan sucks the life out of your batteries!
