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?

I would take it off for sure. We unloaded ours under an Easy Up and slept in the trailer...

I have seen people use jack stands under the ramp door and put there cooker on it. Then they have like Freezer curtains across the rear opening to keep Mother Nature out.

I have a toy hauler I always unload the Jr I think the weight on those ramps would cause trouble after a while reguardless of how you brace under it. I havent seen a back cover that seals real good besides I like the heat and the A/C

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.

How many people do you think it will take to push it in and out of the trailer? I think the weight was 800#.

My personal experience is that it weighs a LOT more than 800#. More towards the 1000#+ range. It better be one heck of a tailgate to cook on the XL on it!!!! I stand 6 feet tall and it is taller than me. Durn near had to get a step stool to load charcoal. even with the pneumatic caster package, I had to have an additional person, think man, help roll it in and out of the garage.

Obviously this is not meant to deter you in any way from doing it but i would take delivery then decide what to do.

I have been loading a homade cooker that weighs 700# in and out last year. I may have to come up with some kind of winch to help! I agree about getting the cooker then working out how to load it. I am super excited and am going to make it work!!

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.
