Question about the RVQ Rail

Unread postby raptureboi on Sun Aug 09, 2009 3:56 pm

Does anyone have any tricks to mounting an RVQ rail to the side of our RV? I can't seem to figure out how to find the crossbraces inside the wall (aluminum) to attach the rail to.

Any help would be appreciated!

It might help if we knew what a RVQ was. To find a stud you might try going on the inside, maybe under the sink the wall should be thin enough to push on and feel the stud. look for tape joints or panel joints to help locate studs.

My apologies. An RVQ is a BBQ tht mounts to a rail on the RV.

My Rockwood 8319 came with a RVQ and mounting strip.

FIrst time I added the side table, the strip pulled off of the side of the trailer. Looks like they don't bother looking for a stud at the factory. I removed the small screw that had been used, and went to a thicker, but same lenght screw, which I coated with Automotive "Goop" and replaced the screws. I also noticed that there was another set of holes under the strip, guess they had missed the predrilled hole when attaching the mounting strip. My thicker screw and goop seems to be holding well.

That said, I'm looking to buy a small free standing BBQ which I will use instead of the RVQ supplied. I'm concerned that that much heat up against the side of the trailer cannot be a good thing. I also found that our RVQ is "adequate" when it comes to BBQing food. I am looking at a mini Weber grill. My wife said she saw one recently at a shop in town that she wants me to look into.

I had an RVQ in my Jayflight TT and transferred it to my 5er when I traded. I fixed the rail pretty sturdily but it started to come off, so it was refixed with liberal amounts of epoxy! Having said that, we were never happy with it - it blew out in the smallest wind and drove me nuts. I recently bought a Weber BabyQ at WalMart and rigged it to connect to the outlet my RVQ used and have it standing on a small table. To do that you need to remove the regulator on the Weber. In order to make it more flexible I rigged up a quick connect system so that I can put the regulator back on at any time, so that I can use the little propane bottle if I want to. It is a great grill - wish I hadn't waited so long!

we have a RVQ from our previous trailer. we didn't want it against our new th so we bought a free standing table and i mounted a quick disconnect to the bottom of our trailer with a 8 foot hose on the RVQ to make it a little more flexable.now we don't have to worry about flareups.

I just picked up a Camp Chef BBQ that sits ontop of my 3-burner stove (the bbq will take up 2 burners).

I'm wit Paul......I use a Camp Chef 2 burner stove that I use all the time when camping.....had a propane quick connect added to the 5er and have a 10 foot long flex line so I can move the stove out of the wind......no heating up the trailer and I can cook a heck of a lot faster and sometimes for more people than the good old RVQ. And I can use the camp stove at home, when tenting, or when ever and where ever I want too.

Total cost was $250.00 for the stove and all the propane lines. Of course I told the wife I needed to get a BBQ box for it and she agreed.....means I can use it as a smoker as well......Now that is 'camping'

Hey Pat, that bbq looks like a GREAT idea. Without charcoal or the rock that you find in other bbqs, I'd be interested in how the food tastes. Does it still have that bbq taste?

I haven't tried it yet, although I know someone who has the identical bbq and they really like it.
I would think it's no different that any other 'gas' type bbq.

Our bbqs still have the "rock" in them, that's why I asked. Didn't know there were "rockless" ones :)

I have a similiar one to Patrick....only a single BBQ box not the double like his.....I used it all of last summer almost every weekend and almost every meal and found (as did my family and friends) and found it tasted similiar to that of charcoal BBQ's, just without the mess. The ones we have can also be used as a smoker which really adds the flavour....

I second the Weber as well. We've got the Q200 and its a great unit. A bit large right now, but the kids will grow into it. Getting back to the RVQ though, we had one on our tent trailer and it seemed to work all right, albeit a bit small and I was never concerned about burning the thing to the ground. The heat seem to dissipate quite well since the actual grill sat about 6" out from the side of the trailer.
There is no such thing as a bad day camping.

Hey Martyn, that looks like a good one.

Do you have a hitch on your boat trailer? Love to see that setup going down the road :)
