Maybe the bumper isn't the best place to put it.

It would take a little more room to get a grill with legs/stand, but if you could put it on the side of the bus (closer to the door), you might find it easier to cook in not-so-perfect weather, and you might be close enough to your kitchen sink inside so you don't need a second one. I like that table/sink combo, but it looks a little shallow for doing dishes. If you've got a limited water supply, you might want a sink you can soak the dishes in rather then a constant rinse.

something to think about, where does your exhaust exit?

if the back, might be a strong smell of residual diesel in the air, ours is out side by the door and it smells for a day or so after a long trip

Just a thought. If you want your grill to be off the back of the bus you could use a removable hitch extension to attach the grill to, and still be able to tow a trailer.

Actually you could put something on the grill and still make a few more miles before you stop and have dinner.

There's a cookbook out there (not Road Kill Cookbook but similar) that has recipes for stuff where you cut up the ingredients, wrap it all in al foil, and leave it on your exhaust manifold. IIRC the cooking time was expressed in miles.

Not a bad idea and it would might make the bus smell good, except for the leak that dribbled on the manifold.

Ya GOTTA watch this:

He has lots of good ideas, but the best is putting gravy in the windshield washer reservoir so you can baste the turkey while you're driving...

Nooooo! We're still talking about cooking. The outdoor bumper cooker, except we moved the food the the exhaust manifold.
