There are IMHO a number of *big* differences between a condo and and trailer if something goes wrong while using propane
. You will only damage your own property (the trailer) and not likely to damage other peoples property (as you probable would in a condo fire). No one is on the floor above you in a trailer and trapped there should you start a fire - so you are not likely to cause the death of someone else who isnt even staying with you. Probable the biggest differences is that in a trailer the propane
tank is normally a fair distance from the applicance using its fuel. In the event of a stove top fire in most cases it is pretty easy to shut down the fuel supply before things get to far out of control. While most portable BQ's have their tanks right under them or beside them - making it hard if not impossible to shut off the tank if for some reason the BQ turns into a ball of fire.
Last but not least it is far more likely that someone will start up their BQ and throw on the meat and then head into the house to get something and forget about it for a little to long than there is for someone to leave a stove top in an RV unattended. I know someone who decided to do their turkey for thanksgiving on a BQ on their sundeck and left it - it resulted in the fire department being invited to dinner. Not only was the turkey a little over done but the deck caught on fire (caused by the burning turkey fat) and was threating to take the house with it. True story
