I use Solaire SOL-EV17A grill ( https://www.amazon.com/Solaire-SOL-EV17A........=Solaire+SOL-EV17A&qid=1576126650&sr=8-1) It is propane gas grill and what I really like about it is that it preheats very quick, in just three minutes. Very convenient when you very hungry and want to eat now and don't want to spend much time to set it up and preheat. I use one-pound propane tank, but you can use a larger tank as well. Stainless still, easy to clean and easy to assemble. I use it more than 5 years and it still works as the day I bought it.

We use a small table top-uses 1# bottles, think I paid less than $20 from local discount drug store, though several years ago. Folds up pretty compact, easily fits in compartment.


This is the same one that I use only in black. Only issue is that in really cold or wind it does not have a pile of heat. But for the price cannot be beat!


Mine is kind of like that though also in black and cheaper looking. Also my top does not hinge, it just lifts off. I think it was $20 at Walmart.

Edit, here it is, looks like it's $30 now

After downsizing to a 20’ C (about same size as a truck camper) we got a Coleman fold-n-go with a skillet attachment, cooks great for two

Thanks for all of the great input! I opted to try a small Coleman Fold N Go for an upcoming trip where we will be only staying for a day or two in each location during our travels. Since it will only be the two of us I think it will be big enough to cook for us, and easy to setup and store. In the spring I might look at a little larger grill for those trips when we will be cooking for more than just two people.

Have used my Weber Q100 for YEARS. Store it in the rear of my truck when pulling my 5er. Use adaptable 20# tank.

+1. I've had mine for 15 years. Replaced the grill once. Fits in the TC perfectly. No mess. One suggestion: Don't turn on the propane with the lid on then press the piezo igniter. The lid can go up a few feet when the propane ignites.

Works on the boat rail, on a table with a tripod, and thinking of ways to mount on a camper jack. Canvas bag for storage keeps other gear clean.

This is the one that we have. It is small however it is perfect for the two of us and fits into the basement of our Northern Lite Camper.

How are any of these grills at searing, though? My experience with similar grills is that they're pretty anemic.

To sear properly you need something that gets ripping hot, and those $20 grills just can't. If all you're doing is warming up some hot dogs that's one thing, but slow cooking burgers or a steak on a grill, you end up with a dry piece of gray shoe leather...

I have a Weber Q2000 and it's barely adequate in the searing department even with a 20lb propane tank.
