Here's a discussion with pictures on the baby Q conversion. RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Convert Weber Baby Q to Low Pressure LP

Mine does not, it's too tall. Picked up a large size duffle bag from Cabela's that it fits into pretty good, it'll have to ride in the truck bed. It's Not water proof, so I'll tuck it under the tonneau cover if it looks like rain. The grill is heavier then I imagined.

Another member here told me his fits in the front storage, either they changed size for the 2015's or there's a trick to it. I didn't spend much time trying. I'll take another look when I get where it's warmer.

When I tried to download a manual from Weber, the product selector distinguished between 2014 and an earlier version... so my guess is that they did make it taller a couple of years ago.

I am finally making the change over to the onboard propane for my BBQ. I am using the supplied propane hose from ETI for another purpose. It just didn't seem any easier than going this direction. WEBER Q RV Quick-Connect Plus Kit w/ 12' M/F QC Hose - propanegear

Here is link to video with lots of info that will help anyone looking to convert any Weber Q grill to their RV using the Weber Q Quick Connect Kit mentioned above.

The Q100, formally known as the Baby Q and its replacement, the Q1000 are essentially the same size. Weber changed the base (the feet). Both will fit in the front storage compartment if the lid is removed and the bottom is put in first and the the lid is then replaced. The pins which hold it on are 1/4-inch and Bimini pins for boats (quickly removed and easily reinstalled) can be used in their place. Other 1/4-inch pins with protruding "balls" on one end to keep them from slipping out are available at Ace or other hardware stores. I carry my grill in the back seat, however, in a tote with the leveling sticks I use and a short and long propane hose. Because it is in a tote, we have never noted any smells from it.

I found the fittings I needed to convert my Q100 at Lowe's for under $10. I am fortunate to have a custom hose fabricator about 20 miles from my house where I can get low pressure female and male fittings. I put a pigtail with a male fitting on the Q100 so I do not have to wrap a long hose around the grill while being transported. All told, I spent around $35 to convert mine.

Does this conversion mean that we can no longer use our Weber with smaller propane bottles when we are away from the trailer?

Correct, you'd have to come up with a way to rig in the regulator, which is removed when you convert, along with the flame control.

It can be done using additional QD fittings, but you would want to make sure that the small propane bottle remains in a generally upright position. This is guaranteed by the Q100's/Q1000's design before the conversion is done. I have an easily carried 1 gallon propane cylinder and a regulator purchased at Lowes with a female QD so I can use my grill away from my campsite.
