RoadTrip grills are known for their easy-to-use portable design. However, they also give you a great cooking experience with high-heat, even temperature burners.

Not to mention, you can start your grill with a simple push of a button, and clean up is a breeze. Talk about outdoor cooking made easy!

RoadTrip Xcursion VS LXE:

Essentially, the new Xcursion is a updated model of the older Coleman LXE. They both feature the same fold-up wheeled legs, dimensions, cooking surface area. Plus, both have 20,000 BTU’s.

However, the Xcursion features a single elongated burner (see photo below) rather than 2 separate burners. You can still control both sides separately, but the new design distributes the heat more evenly.

I also noticed that the newer version only has 1 side table instead of 2. Now you may need to hold your beer and drink it. (Or if you want 2 side tables, check out the RoadTrip 285.)

For example, the full-size griddle plate lets you cook pancakes, fajitas, eggs and more. Not to mention, the griddle features a non-stick surface for easier cooking and hassle-free cleaning.

In addition, you can get a round steel stove grate. Now, you can boil water for coffee, tea, oatmeal, a pot of soup, etc..

Note: The grill itself already comes with 2 porcelain-coated cast iron grill plates. Therefore, you can use 2 together or one alongside the round steel grate. In other words, you can cook up some sausages while heating up soup at the same time.

Lastly, Coleman offers replacement Swaptop cast iron grill grate in half sections.

Of course, we can’t forget the mess after we cook. I know I don’t want a time-consuming clean-up job on my hands while I’m camping or tailgating.

Thankfully, the RoadTrip Xcursion comes with a handy water pan called the “DripTrap”. It catches all the grease, and you can easily remove it for cleaning after you grill.

Then, collapsing the grill and wheeling it to your car requires no work either. The wheels are even designed for off-road terrain. go figure!
