Whether you’re camping, taking a trip in your RV, or just going on a day trip to the park, a portable grill is a product that is a must-have! With all of the different options available, finding the perfect grill that meets all of your requirements can be an overwhelming challenge. This guide will make sure you purchase the best portable grill for your needs!

1. Keep Cooking Surface In Mind

Coleman Roadclassic Blue GrillWhen deciding on which portable grill will be the perfect fit for you, take into consideration the cooking surface. If you plan on cooking for a large group of people, having a grill with a large cooking surface will be ideal.

Coleman Road Trip Classic

The Coleman Road Trip Classic Grill not only provides 285 square inches of cooking surface, but the versatility it offers is unbelievable! A customer favorite, and deservedly so, this grill includes removable “mix & match” grill, griddle and stove surfaces, allowing you to customize the cooking surface to best fit your needs. 

2. Looking for durability?

O-Grill O-DockIf you travel primarily on rough terrain, like to throw stuff in your vehicle and go, or just have a bad history with breaking products, durability is a feature you should keep in mind.  

Grill 2 Go X200

Built with a cast aluminum firebox and lid and complete with steel latches, this portable grill is ready for any high impact that may come its way! Features also include a “TRU-Infrared” cooking system, a wider temperature range, and push-button ignition for fast cooking.


This next option is not only great for small spaces, but the O-Grill is another portable grill that boasts its durability. Made from rugged steel, the hood and firebox are constructed with stamped sheet metal with high-temp paint ensuring durability all the way down to the finish. Also check out the O-Dock folding table accessory from Camping World.

3. Are You an RVer?

If so, you should consider purchasing a portable grill that can be mounted. Camping World offers multiple portable grill options specifically for those who own RVs!

Stainless Steel Mountable Grill

Stainless Steel Mountable GrillThe Stainless Steel Mountable Grill is a must-have for the RV family that loves to grill! Featuring a patented smoker plate, this grill offers the fullest flavors all the while minimizing the chance of flare-ups. The mounting bracket it is equipped with serves not only to mount the grill, but can also be used as a table if you wish to use the grill away from the RV. This design is intended for RVs equipped with a low-pressure quick-connect propane outlet, so if your RV doesn’t include that, you will want to purchase an accessory hose that will connect your new grill to a propane cylinder. Make sure to read the product description online carefully to avoid any mishaps!

4. Gas or Charcoal?

Although gas grills are really taking off, some may still prefer the taste of a grilled meal cooked over coals! You haven’t been forgotten! If charcoal is more of your liking, check out this awesome choice:
