Have finally picked up a Baby Q and intend mounting it in a slide to slide it out over the tailgate for use similar to the fridge.

The only problem I have come across is that all the slides I have found slide length wise same as the fridge and I would like it to come out sideways so I have the rest of the tailgate to the side to use instead of it opening to the side of the trailer with nothing to the end of it.

Has anyone come across such a slide either specifically for or that can be adapted to suit, or even someone that can make to order?

Trying to avoid making my own due to time restrictions and the cant be bothered syndrome after working 2 weeks at a time.

I had a similar issue and dealt with it a while ago before "the cant be bothered syndrome " set in :-) (I am suffering that now with a number of non-urgent projects ahead of me.)

I made a turntable using turntable bearings of the type found here and fixed the BBQ to that.

Choose the widest that will fit and all-metal construction (I did find some plastic ones when I did mine).

Even though cheap, mine has been in place for years over thousands of km of corrugations, dirt roads etc and is still working perfectly.

I'm just about to build one for my canopy. I plan to have it slide out sideways and use a locking boat seat swivel to adjust it. I am thinking of mounting it on a home-made drop-slide, but haven't decided upon this yet.

Hi qlpcamper, check out They sell a number of different brands of fridge slides, including sideways slides.

Try checking with Royal Flair Caravans - they have that set up for their inbuilt caravan - as would probably most camper trailer outfits.

I actually removed ours as I now use the BABY Q in preference, so the bbq box is a storage unit - just not big enough to fit the Weber unfortunately.

Make sure the slide gets it far enough out that small fires won’t scare you. I have had a few flair ups with lamb chops etc on the baby q over the years - totally operator error.
