Coleman RoadTrip LXX Grill – Overview

The Coleman RoadTrip LXX Grill is designed for easy portability and fast, efficient outdoor grilling.

Setting up the LXX is a simple 4-step process:

  1. Lift – place your foot on the towing handle, then grasp the metal handle and lift until the stand is fully extended
  2. Lock – lower the grill and slide back until the leg extensions lock into their brackets
  3. Slide – grab hold of the side tables and fully extend each one out
  4. Light – attach a propane cylinder and push the ignition button with the lid up

With 285 sq. in. of cooking area and two burners blasting away at a total of 22,000 BTUs, is enough to cook for a family or group of 3 to 4 people per batch. However, it is very fast so that you can cook many batches without much delay.

Swapping out cooktops from porcelain-coated cast iron grill grates to griddle tops to stove grates (sold separately) means that you have a wide range of cooking options. Bacon, eggs, and hotcakes for breakfast. Fresh caught fish for lunch and burgers, hot dogs, and steaks for dinner. Brew coffee or boil corn on the other burner while the main meal cooks.

Stainless steel tables slide out from the sides for convenient surfaces to hold food, seasonings, sauces and serving plates. Handy hooks hold tools in easy reach.

When you’re ready to move on, collapsing the Coleman RoadTrip LXX Grill is just as easy as setting it up. The large handle and wheels make it easy to transport to your vehicle where it fits easily in the trunk of any car.

Coleman RoadTrip LXX Grill Review - Grilled Food

Coleman RoadTrip LXX Grill – Performance & Functionality

Size – Cooking Area vs BTUs

The Coleman Road Trip LXX Grill is a 2-burner stove with 285 sq. in. of cooking area. Each burner is independently adjustable up to 11,000 BTUs for a total of 22,000 BTUs. This power allows it to be used in cold, windy weather and still perform well.

However, this high heat output can surprise new users with how fast it cooks.  The good news is that PerfectFlow technology provides fine, consistent temperature regulation even at low flame. And the built-in thermometer allows you to monitor temperature as you cook.

Efficiency

With full flame on both burners a single 16.4-oz. propane cylinder will last one hour or 4.5 hours on low. Because it cooks so quickly, you can cook for a large number of people in a short time and not use up all of your gas.

InstaStart pushbutton ignition means you don’t need matches to light the flame.

The two burners are independently controlled so that for small jobs you can use only one burner to save fuel. Or cook two types of food, one on each side with different heat intensities for each.

Portability

The Coleman Road Trip LXX Grill is designed for portability. It is easy to set up and just as easy to collapse. The stand is wheeled and the wheels can be used in both operating and collapsed condition.

When collapsed, the grill is compact and flat for easy storage.

Durability

This is a sturdy, high-quality grill. Its durability is attested to by its weight.

Coleman backs up the long-lasting, well-built grill with a 3-year limited warranty and great

Versatility

In addition to the included porcelain coated grill grates, the Coleman Road Trip LXX Grill is compatible with all Swaptop accessories. You can cook with a cast iron griddle on one side and a cast iron grill grate on the other. A Swaptop full-size aluminum griddle is also available.

All Swaptop accessories must be ordered separately.

Appearance

The Coleman Road Trip LXX Grill is sleek and modern looking. You will be happy to bring it along to a tailgate party and show off to your friends.

  1. Wow! I love this. It would be perfect for a day at the beach too. I like that it is compact and easily transported. I also like that it is a gas grill, rather than charcoal (less mess and less to carry). I do wish it was height adjustable since my husband is a tall man. Still, it would definitely be a great gift for both day and camping getaways.

    1. Hi Linda,

      Yes, height adjustment would definitely be an improvement. I haven’t found that feature on any outdoor camping grills. Some have adjustable legs for levelling but that only gives you a couple of inches of extra height.

      Thanks for taking time to comment.
