Mounting a Grill

Preparing to do some full time Scampin' and am trying to find some sort of swing mount for above the tongue and propane tank to mount our grill to. I am having trouble finding anything like this and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. In my mind all it would really be is a cylinder attached to the tongue with another cylinder that can pivot and that the grill can mount to. I am thinking it could lock in to place with a pin that when removed the grill can swivel so that the grill will open parallel to the side of the Scamp. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Erik V.

I attach a small table (about two feet wide by a foot and a half deep) to the back curb side of the trailer. I place my grill on that. Bought a set mounting rails from the rv place for about $5. Added a support leg to brace the table. It's pretty much what the popups use to mount the stove outside. Need a flat run of trailer side so to not put a curve in the mounting rail which would make it impossible to attach the table mounted rail. Won't help you at the front though.

If I had to reinvent the wheel I would start at your marine supply. Bass Pro, Cabellas ETC.
I would us an offset seat post, seat base and mount a lower socket on the frame of the trailer. easy to remove when not needed and will look good without much effort.

Erik, I have a grill for my pontoon boat. It has a 2" table pole mount bracket on the bottom of it. And a 2" base mount. You can use the same style base.

Why do you want to mount it? What's wrong with putting it on a table, or on the ground?
What do you do to shield it from the wind if it's mounted on the trailer?

I mounted a side table on the Casita for a couple reasons;

I like a level grill so eggs don’t run off the griddle and the grease channel for bacon and such flows the right way (into the catch basin). I was spending time leveling the picnic table but it finally occurred to me that the trailer was already level. Not the biggest issue I face but I often find the small things annoy me the most.

I found an unobtrusive mount at an RV store for about $5.

I mounted it under the trailer awning for protection while cooking in a drizzle. I don’t normally bring a separate awning for over the picnic table. Sometimes I can’t drag the picnic table under the trailer awning.

Nor do I carry a separate table for the stove, although I’ve seen some nice ones with telescoping legs.

As I alluded to, I’ve been to campgrounds with picnic tables that I can’t move either by design (the stupid cement ones at LBL) or they’re too heavy. Everything I set up, I have to take down. No one to delegate to. Hanging a shelf takes less than a minute including finding it under the stuff that travels on the bed.

So, it works for me.

Excellent point about the level trailer, Steve. Even though I use a 2'x4' folding table for food prep under our awning, there are times when the ground makes it impossible to level (and thus, use).

Erik, I googled sailboat grill mount (because I've seen them on boats before) and found

This bumper mount style is kind of interesting.

Did you see the over the hitch swing out bar and grill table that Flygal made. It even had an umbrella holder!

Lots of pictures of her mod in the thread Front Hitch Tike Bar Table

Carol beat me to it. I saw Flygal's grill table at the Spring NOG 2013. Very, very nice!

Yup it was sad to see her little bar roll away when she sold that trailer.... hoping she comes up with something as creative for her new trailer real soon

Doesn't anyone see the problem here? Why would someone want to cook near their propane tank, isn't that like using your propane grill inside your garage? I like to keep flame and heat and flammable items away from my home not attached to it? The further away the less chance you your mobile home will be damaged by unfortunate accident. To me cooking on top of your propane tank next to your other propane tank is dangerous.
