Replacement grill on OEM bumper mount?

After two seasons I'm finding that the propane grill that came with the TT is nearing the end of its useful life. I love the location of the bumper mount arm that positions the grill right at my outside kitchen. It is a well engineered setup.

I've found an exact replacement model at CW, but I'd love to upgrade from the cheap grill to a Weber Q or similar. Has anyone found another propane grill that fits our bracket?

I smell a mod coming...


Perhaps someone could fabricate something for you.

If I'm going to do a mod, then I might try to mount my charcoal smoker on the bumper! I could light it, throw on a brisket before leaving home. . . .

Just thinking about it, that might not be a great idea. Too many motorists would follow us to our quiet camping spot.

We've not taken ours out of the box yet. Once I read the BTU output, I just left it behind for our trips.

I would imagine there is a bolt pattern our anchor that can be modified to fit the Weber Q.

A smoker is a great idea..

Pricey..280 for just the mount, but it matches up to a Weber Q

CW is the only place I have seen the exact replacement. I actually like the grill for what it is. As far as BTUs, it can sometimes be too hot when one needs to cook slower. I bought a coleman griddle that actually fits inside it. Last trip out I used it to make bacon, eggs, and fried potatoes every morning.

Funny you should mention it,

I carry an electric skillet and griddle now to feed the masses. I have an RVQ from my last TT. Used it maybe twice. I too get hot spots with both my trailer mount grills. The flair ups when doing burgers got out of hand for us with the RVQ. Too close to the the trailer.

If what you have is the same as mine, it looks like Fleming will sell you parts.

I found this model that looks like it will fit. It is almost the same as the stock grill, but in stainless.
stainless grill
Looks to be about the same BTU.

I use the ss camco grill in the above link and like it. It has a cast iron plate in it to equalize the heat. Not perfect but nice and useable.

jakesz28, funny you mention a cast iron plate. On my old TT I had an RV-Q and the thing had hot spots where food would burn, so I bought a cast iron grill plate the size of the grill and it worked like a charm. I was going to recommend that.
