I would like to find a 3 burner stove for my new Jayco Travel Trailer. My Starcraft Pop Up had a nice indoor/outdoor stove top that hung on the side of the trailer. the Jayco has a rail, for hanging, and an LP quick connect. I see there is a grill available from Jayco, but no stove. Any suggestions where to find a stove that will hang on the side?

You can't hang it on the side of the camper, but the Camp Chef talked about in this thread sounds like a great stove/oven combo.

I have a Camp Chef 3 burner stove that I love. Their procucts are good quality, but not cheap.

When my grown kids were inspecting our new fifth wheel, one asked why we bought a trailer that sleeps 4. My reply was that we couldn't find one that sleeps 2!

I've heard some complaints from folks with RVQs (the grill that hangs on the side of TTs) that it gets awfully hot and they are concerned about possible damage to the side of their TTs. Not sure what the percentage is that has this problem - it might be just a few. In any case, though, I think the suggestion for the Coleman stove is a good one. Perhaps you can find or build a shelf that can attach to the side of your TT and put a Coleman stove on that.

I searched high and low for indoor outdoor pop up stove. I eventually found one on Ebay. For $50.00 bucks or so. I could have had a dealer order one from the factory but the price was outrageous. Anyway I suggest you look on Ebay or Craigslist. They do appear there occasionally

You are a smart guy to do this. I much prefer cooking outside to inside.
I have a Webber gas grill with a flat top that I put over the top for eggs, pancakes, etc. but I'd really like a couple of burners. I don't remember where but there are a couple of companies that make burners.
Go search online, there's lots of options.

We just used our coleman stove from tenting days. Not connected to the rail nor the quick connect (differing pressures). Best part of all is cost efficient.

We really missed having the high pressure outside stove that our Coleman popup had. The following pictures show how we added one to our Roo. There's usually a big difference in the performance between a high pressure stove and low pressure stove (Camp Chef seems to be the best low presurre unit out there). There is also a big difference when it comes time to installing one or the other as well. There is much more work and materials needed to install the high pressure stove.


We really liked the high-pressure stove that came with our Coleman popup. Found a new one on ebay for short money for our Roo. Outfitted the stove using a piece of shelving board so that it has some counter space to either side.


Here’s the connection fitting on the camper side (#600 male).


Here’s the connection at the tanks. Each tank has one these modified (1/4” elbow) Marshall adaptors. Each tank is still connected to the low-pressure regulator/change over valve. The hose with the #600 female fitting has to swapped over to the other tank when the current one runs out. If the stove doesn’t light, that tells me that the changeover valve has swapped the tanks. I can reach through the holes in the tank cover to swap the stove hose over to the other tank.


Here’s the same high-pressure (16 psi) regulator that’s used on the Coleman/Fleetwood popup campers. The hose from the regulator to the tanks was made by MB Sturges Inc. for about $13 (1/4”mpt x 16” hose x 600 swivel female). High pressure LP flex line out from regulator to 3/8” soft copper underneath camper.


Here’s the stove stored behind the sofa inside the camper.


Sofa put down for better view of stored stove.


Stove removed. Velcro “loop” material against wall to protect surfaces. Bracket on right side made from old stove base. Hook & loop strap holds stove in place on left side.

How bout a Weber Baby Q? We traded a unit with an RVQ that we grew to love; got a Baby Q & like it just as well. Plus we can move it where we want it!

Well done. Nice Job. (Keep an eye on those rubber hoses if you leave them exposed 24/7)

The pop up stove and RVQ are both unique, effective and efficient because they easily attach to the side of the RV. Neither produces enough heat to harm the side of the RV. (Some claim the RVQ doesn't even produce enough heat to cook there food!)
I agree there are many other options available for outdoor cooking, however none of them attach to the side of the RV. I have used my RVQ for 4 years with no damage. I imagine the OP has had success using a pop up stove or he would not be seeking another one. The idea that RVQ's cause damage is based on assumption and not actual use. They now make a shiny new stainless version of the RVQ and pop up stoves are still popular. There are RV'ers out there that like the convenience of the attaching the stove to the side and don't fear the scorching myth.
