That what it said on Weber's fact sheet. The Camp Chef MVP is 15 X 28 X10. The front box in the center is 15" high and 12" wide, so it should fit in there. That's what am hoping as I used to tote my old smoky joe in a rubbermaid tote and while the weber go-anywhere fits in the box I also have to tote charcoal and heck- I got the quick connect. Time to try this out.

They are.
Currently, I'm doing ribs and hoping that the smoke doesn't bring helicopter with a drop of fire retardant.
That's the optional cart for the baby Weber in the background.

It's the same hose I use on my Dickinson.
Exactly what we use at home . Pat

If you mean a single-burner stove such as the ones used for fryers or big stock pots, then I would just look for any one which has a fixed (no control knob) low-pressure regulator on the end of the hose where the hose attaches to the propane tank, and a separate control on the appliance. The entire hose (with regulator) can then be replaced with a low-pressure quick-disconnect hose assembly, just like some grills. Unlike the Spitfire, you would not need to buy a new control.

For instance: but Notice that three of them are Camp Chef brand cookers, two sold by the same store, and one would likely work while another will not... details matter.

Would you want to use both the grill and the separate burner at the same time? I've never seen a "Y" or splitter adapter to allow two connections.

Hi Alf, Robert and Jim et al!
Thanks for all the info on the grills. We think it probably best to wait until we get our 5.0TA..
56 more days until we leave on our adventure to go to Chilliwack! And then the big adventure of meandering all over the west coast before traveling back to New Hampshire...never have we ever wished for the summer to be over!
Happy camping to all that have their trailers and are able to enjoy the great North America around us!

I just bought a new Q1000 to go with my new Escape 19 with quick disconnect hose. The hose had the proper fitting with it as delivered by Escape. I didn't have to purchase any additional fitting. I did need wrenches, screwdriver, and yellow teflon tape.

The Weber Q series of grills are supplied with a regulator and are designed to use high pressure propane from a bulk cylinder or a small disposable cylinder. Unless the regulator on the Weber is removed, the grill WILL NOT operate on low pressure, as the propane coming from the trailer does not have adequate pressure to pass through the Weber's regulator. The Weber regulator is attached to the control knob, and the low pressure propane must be fed directly into the control assembly, not through a second regulator (the first is the one on the propane bottle(s) on the trailer) and then into the control assembly. Unless they have recently changed their design, the regulator screws into an opening with 1/8-inch NPT. That is much smaller than the fitting on the hose I was supplied by ETI.

Yes, I removed the regulator on my Q1000 before I connected its control valve to the QC hose I received with my Escape at the end of May. I needed no other adapter. The QC hose included two sizes of hose ends, the smaller one screwed into the larger.
[edit] The smaller one was a perfect fit for connection the Q1000 control valve to the QC hose once I removed the regulator.

Just got my Camp Chef MVP grill today. With the lid off-removes easily- I can store it in the front box. Lid stows through side hatch. It does work with quick connect. The adapter I got included with the Camp Chef oven is already on my hose & fits this too, but you would have to order it for $8.95(part SPG25-18) The grill has a lot of different options you can do-like a steel grate($19.99) to use pots & pans on instead of using the porcelain coated cast iron grates. It has two separate burners and the legs & two side shelves all stow flush underneath. Paid $167 delivered from Overton's. Although just slightly larger than we need, the unit is solid, stows well. Bon Appetit
