Before the Airstream we had a pop-up camper that was equipped with an RVQ grill that quick connected to the side of the camper. The gas connection was right there by the grill connection so it was all very convenient. I loved it.
There was very little splatter and what little there was went onto the open lid. Honestly, I never thought about the heat factor, but it never seemed to be a problem. It was great to be able to cook outside under the awning when it was raining. The unit produced very little smoke so that wasn’t a problem either.
When I traded in the pop-up for the Airstream, I kept the RVQ hoping to be able to find someone to connect it to the side of the Airstream. Got a Weber Baby Q for a gift last year, love it and have waylaid the plans for the RVQ.
