But it cooks, Grills, bakes like no other oven I know of. It's expensive at $400+ and certainly overpriced, but better in performance and cleanup than most.

Still nimble and competitive as noted below.

Interesting read, Thanks! I didn’t know there were so many small class A’s.
One thing I really like, is our outdoor kitchen, (which he missed mentioning in his review), and the fact that the two slides don’t slide into the camp area.

For outdoor cooking, I wanted the Trager Ranger. Darn near pulled the trigger. Just worried about the weight. May still do it one day. I love smoking stuff.

I didn't know that ether. But I see short class A's when in Arizona quite often. Yes I enjoy the outside kitchen also. But one of the features that sold me on this was the fact one didn't need the slides out to still have full operation of the coach. Most have sink covered or bathroom door slightly blocked or something like that. 5th wheels are the worse. Can't walk from front to back unless you climb over the kitchen counter!!!!

I guess were hooked on the thing, as we don't want to leave without taking it along. Barb does all her baking on it as is much easier than the oven. Does pizza very nice. What's nice is that one doesn't have to watch it like most grills. I set it and leave for hours, and when I get back the meal is nearing completion.

Once the pellets are fired up, it takes very little power to do the cooking as only a small fan and auger motor needs to run. They are heavy however. I can manage the weight of mine nicely, but the bigger ones probably would need help to load it. My feet fold and can still be rolled in the configuration.

Outdoor Grill

Recently, we bought a pit boss sportsman portable pellet grill and love it. It has a 19 lb pellet hopper. It doesn’t fit into a bay, but we have a cargo carrier that attaches on our hitch that we carry it in.
Tried the traeger scout first, but had a bad board and a few other issues. We are serious bbq enthusiasts and own a couple big green eggs, pizza oven and gas grill at the house. After getting the pit boss for the rv, hubby decided to try it out in our backyard. Now a couple of months later that is the main go to, unless we are having a bbq and smoking a lot of meat that won’t fit on the pit boss. Pit boss makes a tabletop pellet grill, but we really like the hopper size on the sportsman. We saw the pit boss stand at a NASCAR race and pulled the trigger. We are very happy with it. We also have a small portable propane grill for the rv and a mini big green egg, but the pit boss is so much easier to use. Just plug it in, add pellets and set the temp.

I guess some people really get serious with these things. At a campground in Nebraska, talked to a guy who has 3 Traegers and one commercial sized one that cost 10k. Apparently he doesn't weddings and such.

I shied away from the pit boss as the one I wanted, the pellet hopper wasn't rain proof. And leave it to me I would forget to cover it.

I think any pellet grill is easy to use and each brand have slight extras that will appeal to the owner. Would encourage others to pursue a pellet grill if you have the space to store and want a simple and reliable way to cook.

Oh gosh yes. I've grilled most of my years, and had so-so results because of flair-up or stuff not quite done etc. This type of grill can make everyone a chef. Plus it's more than a grill. It's an air-oven and more.

The Intent really doesn't have a place to store it. But with a hitch hauler, it fits nicely. May want to lock it as it could disappear easily.

Acquiring one was easy for me. I just wined to my kids about my "so old" Birthday coming up, and they felt sorry for me and the so the Traeger came with a bow on it.
