BBQ Mount

We have a new BBQ with the mounting rack for it that will slide onto the rail on the side of the trailer. My question is what is the neatest and cleanest way to install this aluminum track on the side of our Bigfoot so we can hang the BBQ rack onto it. Not a big fan of just drilling holes thru the body and using washers and nuts on the inside. Any type of epoxy or such product that would hold it on?

I would ask why?
I like to be able to move my portable BBQ to where it's most convenient and out of the wind. If you attach it to the trailer, are you going to have a portable table nearby to place utensils, food and condiments?
And, I'm not keen on having a hot, smoking unit attached to the trailer.
Got a picture of the unit or link?

I think that 3M VHB tape would hold it on as long as you have enough surface area engaged.

If the rail came with installation instructions, I advise following those.

If you're shootin' in the dark:

Tape/adhesive will depend for its strength on the condition of the underlying surface. If you're absolutely confident that the trailer's topcoat is perfectly adhered, it might work. If not, mechanical fasteners are probably the best way to insure that you don't get "flaming barbecue fallout" at an inopportune time.
