Can go Almost Anywhere
As you know, most portable grills require you to transport them to their location, before you begin to grill. The Coleman Roadtrip 285 Stand-up grill is equipped with wheels that make transporting it very easy, with few problems. With a weight of only 47 pounds, which sounds heavy, but since it is on wheels it is a breeze to change locations with it. It is great for use on a patio, or camping, or you can use it when you go tailgating.
People Often Buy a Griddle For Easier Cooking
The Coleman RoadTrip Swaptop griddle is an excellent addon to enhance your grilling experience. Using this griddle allows you to have breakfast when on a camping trip. It will also allow you to grill vegetables that would be difficult to not prepare. One example, grilling mushrooms and onions to go with your steaks. Another example, grilling stuffed jalapenos as appetizers.
Keeping Your Grill Performing and Looking New
Using a grill cover to protect your Coleman Roadtrip 285 Standup Propane grill, and keep it performing as new is the perfect thing. While this cover keeps moisture, dust, and bugs out of your grill, you retain that new grill feel and performance.
Finding a cover this durable and easy to use, can be found at Coleman for the exact size you need. All you have to do is open the bag up, place your grill inside the bag, and zip closed. It is that easy. With the heavy-duty zipper and bag, it will keep your grill looking and performing properly for years to come.
Thoughts on the Coleman Roadtrip 285 Stand-up Propane Grill
I have found the money along with the ease of use, this is an excellent grill for tailgating, camping, and home use. The one-pound gas cylinder used most often is certainly handy for tailgating and camping, but having the option of using an attachment for using a propane tank makes it even more desirable.
For a longer cook-time, for example, simply add the hose and tank for home use, few grills offer you the option for home-cooking or taking your grill to grill for camping or tailgating.
Either way, the ease of use and portability of the Roadtrip 285 is an excellent buy. You can grill for the length of time you desire then move your grill to another location easily. The weight may be a bit heavy for some but by paying attention to your path it should not be any more of a concern than it would be pulling a suitcase while traveling.
I watched my younger brother use one of the Roadtrip 285 grills for several years and he never had any complaints with it. I have used this particular model myself and found it to be easy to use and very versatile.
This grill is great for grilling at home or taking on a camping trip. If camping is not for you then you can also take it to a park for that special time away from home but want to grill for friends and family.
