We've had a Weber Q 1200 forever for many campers. It won't store in your camper unless you find a spot for it inside when traveling. I keep it in the bed of my truck. I also have an cast iron griddle for it for making breakfast and as a heat baffle when I want slower, indirect heat.

Not sure. I've never tried it. I usually put my grill away from the trailer and use a smaller bottle or a 20lb tank if I have it. I think the the outside connector is a low pressure line and may need something else to work with he weber. I'll hope someone else can chime in who knows.

We were considering the little Weber. We could have brought the one we use at our ranch (its awesome) but for a change up, we picked up a 17 Blackstone, which also is awesome. We didnt get the connection hose yet but we well have it by spring.

klash,
I have a venerable Weber Q 100 that originally came with a regulator to use on a stand-alone tank, which I did for years. In that configuration, it will not produce a useful flame from the A-S low pressure port. When the regulator crapped out, I removed it and purchased the proper fittings (fireplace shops and some plumbing supply shops may have this) to make the conversion. The Q grill can be bought new without the regulator. (The "Airstream" model)
I also carry mine in the pickup bed. There are not many grills that will fit in the (valuable) space in the single outside compartment. I installed an A frame tool box from Harbor Freight that likewise would never fit any of the grills commonly available.
When shopping, look for a model with a thermometer built in. The Q's come in different sizes - if you go that route, pick one that fits your storage options.

I use the Weber Q, Airstream edition. It connects directly to the low-pressure propane port on the Airstream. It works beautifully. I also bought the collapsable stand for it, which is nice. I transport it in the bed of my truck to and from campsites, and I store it in my garage at home when not in use. I bought the optional griddle insert for one half of it, which is very nice. You can see it pictured below at the front of the Airstream. We use it extensively when camping and it has been great.

Yes it will, I have both it and a Blackstone converted to work on the outside low pressure line. One thing I found out, both of these work really well converting them over, but a Coleman 2 burner type stove (propane) just doesn't want to work. Just an FYI.

We have a Magma grill. We have a long hose to work off of the port. Also have a regulator to us the small propane bottles. It is stored in the bed of our RAM.

Pro-Iroda O-Grill Portable Grill

Like many folks we used the weber Q grill for many years and it works great. However if you are short of space it can be a hassle and requires two hands to carry. Several years ago I stumbled across the Pro-Iroda O-Grill Portable Grill. This grill is much more compact. It can be stowed lying down or standing up. It has a nice handle, comes in a very nice case and has a cast iron grate. Our's is currently 6 years old and working well.

I have an older Coleman Fold and Go Grill that I converted to be able to use the AS low pressure propane. Not fancy but functional, very compact. It easily fits in one corner of the front exterior compartment. Usually set it up on an REI camp roll table that fits nicely inside the front, side, exterior compartment.

Baby Q

We carry our Baby Q in the rear compartment. In our previous Airstream, 04 25' Classic, we could fit the Weber into the rear compartment assembled, the opening was about 1" taller than our current unit. Our 15 30' Classic requires that we remove the lid, place the lid inside the compartment, put the grill in and put the lid back on. We had purchased our Q when they were first introduced, before we owned an Airstream, so it is older that 12 years. We use the grill the majority of the time with the griddle covering half the cooking area, but we do carry the grate in the box the griddle came in and have used it at different times. We cook almost exclusively on the Weber when we travel and have learned how to cook almost anything we want on it. Just recently cooked a deboned chicken stuffed with boudin on it and it came out perfect. The one outstanding tribute to this grill is that it will stay lit and cook in some pretty stiff winds, something most will not do. I seriously doubt that there are many Weber Q's that have been used more than ours, and we highly recommend it.

I've read people complaining that unless you are direct grilling burgers and steaks there is not enough low heat control to do other kinds of cooking. We've never had that problem. I did not think about taking the lid off to store it in the compartment, it might even fit in our GT. I'd rather not do that though because I'd be afraid of grease dripping in there and attracting varmints during storage. Agree it's a great grill

Wow, this grill is super compact! Does it work with the low pressure propane onboard? I didnt see an adapter on the website.

Any idea where they are selling these nowadays? Can't find them available anywhere.

I bought mine from the Airstream Supply Company. It comes ready to connect to your low pressure propane port.

EDIT: I just re-read your comments and realized you were talking about the other grille.
