Upgraded bumper mount grill

A black metal gas grill came with our Sunset Trail Reserve 26rb. I found the exact grill in stainless steel on Amazon. Got the grill today. It looks very well made. The original grill works fine but I like the cleanability of 100% stainless.

You're not actually going to cook on that and get it all greasy are you?

That is a nice looking grill.

It was about $190 from Amazon with free shipping. The grill can also be used on a tabletop. It came with a bracket.

Jill, it is a very nice looking grill, but how do you keep the steaks, hamburgers, etc from sliding off or to one side or the other?

The bumper bracket swings in when not in use. It swings out for use. The grill sits on two posts and connects to the trailer propane with a quick connect hose. The grill sits very level and has quite a bit of grilling area. I haven't lost a smidgen of food so far.

Yes it is. It is setting on my thick carpet and it does sit level on a hard surface.

Nope, it sits very level. We will be using it most of the time on the bumper bracket. Once in awhile, we may take it on a day trip and use it on a picnic table.

I believe he is talking about the rotation of the picture you posted.


If you open the picture on you computer first, you can edit, rotate and re-save picture so it will post in correct way.

Right side up view

Here is how the grill is supposed to look when in use. Sorry for the sideways photos.

You should be able to keep those bratwurst on there now.

The bracket you are using for the table top also doubles as hook on fitment to a bracket available from crossroads. It a lows you to hang the grill right on the side of your rig thus eliminating the need for bumper mount grill. I will be mounting my bracket within the next month and when I do I will post a pic
