I'm about to buy a new Propane grill. Trying to stay in the 225sqin size range due to storage spot. So mainly a tabletop style.

I have a top 3 list going and thought I'd ask you folks what you're grilling on.

Coleman grill-stove. Size of the grill is limited, but it is very easy to store. The down side is that the lid can't be closed while in use. The up side is the griddle insert that takes place of the grill section. It is very handy for bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc. It works great for hamburgers and flat meats like steaks or chops. I don't think that it works as well for chicken parts because of the inability to close a lid on it to hold heat.

I had purchased a CharBroil Grill2Go  X200 True Infrared grill, but quickly realized that it is too big to carry easily, so it is in use at home along with the Members Mark pellet smoker/grill and the Vision ceramic egg grill.

We use the little Webber Smokey Joe.  It works well for 2 or 3 people.  It's very easy on charcoal since once  you put the lid on and close the vents, it stops burning quickly.  It's always nice to toss in a bit of mesquite or hickory into the burning coals.  It fit nicely under the seat of our dinette in our 172 and now in our Sonoma.  We light coals with a minute or so of a propane torch.  We just got back from another camping trip and used it 2 of 3 nights, for steaks and bratwurst.

Propane only for this purchase..  Honestly, if I'm going to that sort of flame, I go wood fire. There my Bio-Lite fire Pit shines! Yet not carrying that in the Overlander either.. Space is everything!

The Coleman 225 Roadtrip is on the top 3 list. I have a Coleman cookstove I have used for many years, so comfortable with them.

Those Bio-Lite thingies look pretty neat, but well outside our Social Security budget.  Also, looks like it might not fit under the dinette seat so well.  

We do carry a gas fire pit with little rocks in it in lieu of a smoky camp fire.  It's much easier than smelling like smoke, having to move your chairs, and chopping fire wood.  Runs off a 20# standard propane cyl. or the outside gas port under the trailer.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KY4S388/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  Not good for cooking though.

So Roadtrip 225? If so it's the one I'm looking at. Reason I'm pushing a bit to be specific, and there's several model of Roadtrip now.. 

So far in the Top 3, the Roadtrip 225 is one top. Cost, size for packing, can go either small cylinder or the 11lb I hoe to move up to and cooking square inch surface. If I learned of anyone making perk coffee on it, my research would be over! I am thinking of something like a wok base.. hmm.. 

Let me know if this is the one and your Pro's/Con's on it.
