Replace capital grille

My wife and I are looking at a 2021 SS253RB. It comes wilth a capital grille on the outdoor kitchen. We wanted to get it removed and a drawer put in place but the dealer is going to charge 800-1000 to change this out. I figured I could remove the grille and modify the metal platform and put a bottom on it to make a drawer. Anyone else attempted something like this?

Reason we don’t want the grille is we already have the 3 burner camp chef stove and all the attachments. I’d simply replace the hose with a quick connect to use the capital grille port.

Asking a dealer to help with modifying your trailer is undoubtable asking the wrong guy. Don't ask anyone if your better half already agrees with ya and just go to the table saw and cut the material you need. It's so much easier to make your trailer yourself that suits your needs. Might even be a good excuse to get those few more tools you were eyeing up the last visit to the tool store, lol... No one ever has to many of them...

Odds are VERY good the dealer would charge the $800-1000 & not be anywhere near what you wanted or of any quality, basically wasted $$ & still remodeling yourself.

I think what Iím going to do is just utilize the slides on the metal drawer and build my own. Iím sure I could match up the finish with a stain or at a cabinet place.

Good plan ZeroPro. Sometimes the best place to get a stain matched up is a paint place like General Paint, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, etc. If you could remove a cabinet door and take that along my bet is they could nearly match that perfectly. Dealt with those people most of my life and can vouch some of those workers in the back are pretty impressive when it comes to matching stains. Show a picture when your done, other people's modifications are always another persons next winter project, lol.
