I have not used a Stretch or XL on the tailgate of a toy hauler. But, I have cooked on a Plat 6 on the back of a toy hauler. Worked well. As I recall, scissor lifts on each side of tailgate. I don't recall there being any cross member used.

I don't see how thats even possible. The Plat 6 weighs as much as a Toy Hauler and I've never seen one that wasn't permanently mounted on a trailer. I've heard of stumps making a special "track system" but I just can't see rolling one out of a gate of a toy hauler without it collapsing.

No question about it, this was a big toy hauler -- 40 footer or thereabouts. P-6 was on a rail system that 2 guys could easily roll in and out. Sweet rig. Bill and Philip of Southern Smoke cook on it regularly.

I wouldn't want to be in front of it on unlevel ground. :shock: It's a bear opening the lid on my P6 I can't imagine that thing with any kind of momentum behind it.

So, if you have seen a P6 roll in and out there is some hope. I really wasnt thinking about cooking on the tail gate. I was going to leave the cooker inside the garage of the trailer and cook on it. Now i am leaning more towards having a winch installed to load and unload. Has anyone seen anything like this in action?

I was wondering if anyone has cooked out of the back of a toy hauler on an XL Stretch without unloading the cooker.
Wondering what you would need to install fan wise or if it was even possible. I was looking for an easy way to go to a comp without having to unload the cooker. Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated?

It wasn't an XL Stretch, but a Stretch and a couple of other sizes. They take a short piece of that flexible aluminum tubing one-size larger than the flue on the smoker, run it up and out the back door, through any curtain that they might have installed across the door opening. I would sure use the fan to remove any heat, smoke, carbon , monoxide, etc. that will fill the back of the toyhauler when you open the cooking chamber, charcoal chute or firebox door(s).

Make sure you have a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed in that back section, too.

I was cooking at a contest recently, and the local fire department was being really picky, wouldn't let anybody have a Stump's UNDER an E-Z-Up (they moved the chimney end out from under the Ez-Up) but I don't know what happened with the smokers in the back of Toyhaulers...I'll ask the next time I see one of these guys.

Having seen the inside of a fairly large toy hauler this year, I would pull it out for sure. Why risk CO inside the camper? The team I saw had a nice set up outside with their smokers. I just don't see how it would work in an easy way.
