    The bracket on the back will fit over a rail that is attached to the side of the camper. The bracket is a sort of "U" shape. I assume your camper has this rail mounted on the side? I believe most do.

    Right under the SERIES logo in your picture is the rack that the mounting bracket hangs from

    OOOH... that was NOt your camper in the pic from swordfish... but you still should have a rack on the side to hang the bracket from

    So the legs to the grill can slide in from the back not just from the bottom. I'll check this out tonight. Thanks.

    I just pick up one of these today off of Craigslist. I took some pictures and hope they help. :)


    From this position, lift your grill straight up to remove from stand. If you flip the stand over, you will see the track opposite the side with rubber feet.

    This track slides over bracket on PUP. I slide from left to right to avoid obstructions. After this, slide your grill back onto the posts of the stand. You should see two more tubular ports to do this with. This time, secure the grill in place using the attached "r" key pins. Best to lift the lid of the grill first making holes for this more accessible.

    It's a Sidekick RV-500. I paid $30. Still super clean. Only used a couple of times.

    That's a steal (pun intended).

    Thank you for the find, @jmcelvoy. I had a "I want that" moment and got one from eBay. It puts the stock RVQ grill to shame. The electronic ignition is flawless. The only flaw is the design of the 3 handles. They stick out too much that my old toe box for the grill is too small. I will have to repalce the handles.
