Glen--where in your trailer do you put your Weber for travelling? And does it move around?
Our firepit I think will fit in the bathroom with a towel wrapped around it. New one from Costco this year (and it comes with a lid) one we bought a year ago did not last--so returned it..

Folding bikes in the back of the vehicle. We have been putting the Weber (baby Q) on the back seat but would rather have it in the trailer.

My thought exactly, if I use propane it is inside, otherwise outside is B-R-B-Que with a grill or campfire.Just got a new one, itching to try http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The Weber rides in the aisle in the middle of the trailer, atop a 2' x 5' Walmart runner ( rug? ). I have another box that contains the 10 lb. propane tank and misc. stuff that rides along side. It's been on some pretty rough roads and seems to stay put.

For cooking outside, I use the Weber Q and one or two butane stoves. These don't have wings so you do have to shelter them, but they burn hot on high to boil water quickly. They are light weight and cost about $30. Many brands, all the same.
If I wanted to simmer, I'd use one of the three propane burners in the trailer.

It is one great stove...stays lit, easy to adjust, easy to clean, fairly small and easy to store.
Does the Everest simmer down low well?

If you were able to make the connection to the high pressure stove from the trailer you wouldn't supply enough pressure for the stove to work properly.
What is the delivery pressure in the trailer? I am sure I heard it somewhere, but forget.

If you wanted to cook inside, you could just do that at home.
I know, I know, you would not be able to travel to fun places that way though.

I know we all use our RVs for different reasons, but for me, there is something about cooking outside is soooo much more appealing than cooking inside. While camping that is pretty much all I have done, both in backcountry travel, or with any trailer I have had. This is true for all my family and friends that camp with us too, cooking and eating outside is just another part of the social atmosphere of camping.

I don't for a minute expect that others should feel the same way, just stating my preference.

The Everest is very good adjusted down low and is stable and does not blow out. I built a manometer and set the trailer gas pressure at around 11.5 inH2O. I'm with you and always prefer to cook outside unless the weather is really bad then I consume alcohol inside...

If you consume enough alcohol the weather won't seem so bad.
That has worked for me a bunch of time.

Here's the thing. I consider grilling The Only salmon on the BBQ to be cooking, and I do that outside.
Heating a can of beets is not cooking. So, I can do that inside.
Beer, I can drink inside or outside.

I'm on Netflix, two and a half seasons into Breaking Bad.
You'll have to wait. I don't know yet.
