RV bbq grill questions

Hi everyone,

My friend gave me a bbq grill that he wasn't using anymore, it has the support and everything, but the support bracket is on the camper he sold and he doesn't remember what type it was.

here's a couple of pictures

This is the grill support that would attach to the outside wall, look at the rail (top right of the picture)





And this is the support rail being sold by Camco, How is this going to work?



Also I want to install it on the side of my Ford E250, has anyone done this before?

Maybe this will help, there are many openings on the side and rear of the cover, even tho there is some space behind the grill and the van's body
I was thinking of blocking the rear openings with sheet metal from the inside but keeping those side openings clear.

Thanks for any help

Thanks for all your replies guys! I was overwhelmed haha just kidding

I simply bought the darn bracket on amazon, it was 5$.
It fits perfectly, I will probably install it on the side of the van somewhere.

Ok last question! would you install the BBQ grill under the awning?

Had this same grill on a trailer. I would install under awning if you have plenty of room. I don't like grilling and getting wet. I would build a table with the same attachment for when you are not using the grill.

Must have missed that first post. If there is an issue with a BBQ, it would be the smoke itself but I don't worry too much about it. I limit it to times where the weather forces me under the awning.
