There are all different brands, sizes, styles and prices of RV gas grills, so you can pick the one that best suits your needs. If you prefer to only have a couple of meals at your campground and try out some local restaurants during your trip then a smaller model should suffice. However, if you plan on cooking lots of more complicated meals then a larger option may be better.

It is important that when working with gas and fire that you act responsibly and safely. To operate a gas grill you should fully read the instructions provided before using it. You should first lift the lid off of your grill and fit the flaps so that the lid is held in place - make sure that it is very secure so that it doesn’t fall down and trap your fingers. You then must attach the grill to your gas supply. Make sure you read the instructions to find out what type of gas is required for your gas grill as well as how to connect it.

There are two types of gas that you can use - propane gas and natural gas. Some grills give you the option to alternate between propane and natural, however most are either propane or natural and you can’t run propane on a natural gas grill and vice versa. A natural gas conversion kit costs between $50 and $100 however, in the long run natural gas will save you money as well as trips to buy more propane.

Many RV gas grills come with many different optional features. The more features you want, the more expensive your gas grill will be. However, if you regularly take RV vacations then a more advanced gas grill may well be worth the money. Some of the available features on larger gas grills include side burners, rotisserie burners, lights, and multiple level cooking services to name just a few. The opportunities are truly endless.

Another factor to look at when purchasing an RV gas grill is the heat factor. Different grills have different BTU ratings. A BTU rating tells you how much heat is created by the grill. Just because a grill has a high BTU rating does not necessarily mean it produces more heat. It is simply a factor of how much heat is produced, and other factors include the size of the grill, and how well it holds and distributes the heat that is created. Ask your RV gas grill salesperson for more information on what BTU rating is best for your needs.

There are hundreds of different brands out there selling gas grills for your RV. Coleman’s gas grills are the best known for campers and RVers. These are quite expensive, but long lasting and high quality. Most large home store such as Wal -Mart should have a huge range of RV gas grills for you to choose from. Remember that if they don’t come with a propane gas tank (if this is your chosen type of grill) you will need to add approximately an extra $40 to the price of your grill to purchase a propane tank.
