To answer a couple of questions and concerns I've seen since my post.

To adapter to a standard lp system would be easy with an adapter hose. Any that converts your propane to the round connector for a 1# bottle will work. To tie into a system after the TC regulator would be a bit more troublesome, but could be done.

As far as putting a pot on and boiling water, should be able to do it but would use more propane than a little side grill.

I've been carrying the 17" with the griddle in the normal position in the back seat for the last 3,000 miles, some of it rough road. No bending of the sheet metal at the four post. No smell even after cooking salmon which is one of the smelliest things I know. We just put a Blackstone cover on it before sliding it into the little wooden box sitting in the back seat. The side towards the door of the box is open, but we haven't noticed any smell, even after getting in the truck at the end of a hot day.

One of the key things to the griddle is not cleaning it too well. Usually after I cook, just scrape then turn off. When I turn it back on for the next use, just scrape again, wipe down with a paper towel then light coat of olive oil. Things like burgers are the worse, but still not a big deal.

Cool down for storage takes about as long as required to eat. I have put it up within a couple of minutes when we had a storm roll in, just didn't put the cover on it until later.

Truck camper is limited for space and for people, why have a huge grill for 2-4 people? I like small and light weight. This works fine for us and I cook for up to 4 on it.

I have a similar one to 2 Piece. Mine is a Weber and I've had it for years. Still works great.

The OP mentioned wanting to spend a lot of time outdoors. I do that but not in the campground. I am usually out sightseeing, hiking and doing photography almost all the waking hours of the day.

Carrying grills and fuel and the accessories are just not worth it to me, especially because space is limited in a truck camper. Most of my outdoor cooking is limited to grilling over a campfire. I have the usual folding marshmellow/hot dog skewers and I kept the roughly 14" top of an old grill. I use it on top of campground grills so my burgers are not on the dirty/rusty grill provided. Without a campground grill I can get by holding the grill up over coals with some rocks.

I’ve got a Weber Q100/Baby-Q, and carried it around for several years in the toolbox I carry on the front bumper. Due to its height, I always had to take the lid off the grill and stow them side-by-side in order to get the toolbox lid closed. So, the grill took up twice as much space in the toolbox as it should have.

I bought this Coleman Fold N Go Grill about a year ago, and so far I like it. It’s just big enough to cook a couple of hamburgers, steaks, or chops, which is what I’m typically grilling. It could easily handle 3, and maybe 4 if needed. You can find it cheaper than Amazon has it for right now. I paid about $65.

It’s small, not very tall, and fits in the space I have for it very well. I haven’t tried this yet, but I think you could set a frying pan on it also.
