Suitable for use both for RVs and in other outdoor situations, the Olympian RV 5500 is a high-quality lightweight stainless steel barbecue that is designed to increase the flavor of cooked food without causing dangerous flare-ups that you don’t want around your vehicle.

Multi-Purpose Mounting Bracket

Use with Your RV or Trailer

If the RV or trailer has a preinstalled mounting rail, the provided mounting bracket can be used to hang the grill from the side of the RV or trailer. The mounting bracket can be attached by holding it at a 45-degree angle over the mounting rail and sliding it onto the aluminum mounting rail and then slowly lowering towards the trailer or RV. The horizontal mount channel on the side of the bottom housing has small tabs that will lock into the grooves on the support arms. Slide the grill to the desired location and then allow the tabs to lock in place. Make sure the grill is square on both support arms.

General Outside Use

The mounting bracket doubles as a table stand if you want to use the grill away from the RV or trailer. Set the mounting bracket on the table or other flat surface with the support arms pointing up. Position the grill with the back toward the springs on the mounting bracket and slide the support arms into the vertical mount channels on the side of the grill. The mounting bracket has leveling rubber bumpers for balancing or leveling the grill.

Standard or Disposable Propane Cylinders

Your new grill is designed to operate with any RV or trailer equipped with a low-pressure quick-connect propane outlet. When you receive your grill it will be factory equipped with the proper propane gas quick-connect and hose assembly to connect to your RV or trailer. If the RV or trailer does not have a low-pressure quick-connect propane outlet, you may purchase an accessory hose that will connect your grill to a 5 lb or 20 LB propane cylinder or to a 1 LB throwaway cylinder. There are several other options to use your RV or trailer’s propane if you are not already equipped.

Terrific Grill What a great grill! I used it 4 times now and it’s the best small gas grill I have ever used (and I am a grill-a-holic). The quick connect hose that comes with the grill works great with my Jayco TT that came equiped with the quick connect fitting underneath. Sure is cost effective not having to use those small LP cylinders. So far I have not found any hot spots, but I do use a piece of aluminum foil on top of the cast iron drip plate which makes cleaning a snap! Priced at just over $200.00, shipping included, it was the best bargain I found anywhere.

Broken straight out of the box We’ve got a camping trip this weekend with a crowd of 11 for dinner. This grill seemed perfect, that is until we mounted it to the camper. The tack welds for the cover and the burner broke upon installation. Even if the grill makes a great steak or burger, it’s hard to justify $200 for something so poorly made.1 year later: From 1 star to 2 stars. We got our replacement with no hassle. The second grill was constructed much better. However, we bought this grill because we liked the stainless steel look. Upon first use, it turned brown on the outside because it runs so hot. The entire grill is brown and black now. It’s very hard to regulate the temperature. Use your money to buy something else.

Surprising quality and capabilities I bought this after much experience with Blue Rhino, Weber, and others. They were all too big, too small, too heavy, too cold, difficult to clean, low quality, all kinds of faults.With the Camco, I’ve found a “sweet spot”. It’s big enough, light enough, hot enough, and just-barely okay-priced (for me).Pros: small/compact but enough cooking area, light weight, great heat, well-built; A unique and effective cast-iron cooking grate under the grill.Cons: needs a regulator for using a propane tank; quirky base/stand for free-standing operation, finicky spark-lighting adjustmentThe Weber Q200 was the best grill I’ve owned prior to this. Fairly even heat with a large cast-iron grill. But BIG, and HEAVY, it took up way too much space in my RV storage locker. The Camco fits CROSSWISE in the same cargo space and takes up 1/4 of the space for 3/4 of the cooking area. The Weber, despite its huge cast-iron grill, did have hot and cold spots. But the Camco…
