Picked up one of the new Travelers

The grill is permanently built into the cart and folds up just like a dolly. So, it wheels around very easy. Has a piston on the cart to, so you can just pull the lever under the side table and it will fold down on it's own slowly.

Did you compare it to the Napoleon Travel Cart which is much more expensive?
 
Not really, looked at it online, but with few napoleon dealers around here, I didn’t think very hard about it other than dual burners would have been nice.
Thanx for the Reply as the Napoleon Brand is very popular here in Costa Rica.

However, I have seen some posts that down-the-road it is difficult to get replacement parts?? I am a long-time Weber user because they back-up their product and easy to contact their Customer Service even from Costa Rica.

That's something I've read about Napoleon too. And with limited local dealers, I didn't want the headache if there were problems. Overall, I don't hear a lot of complaints about the actual Napoleon grills themselves though. They have some nice features, especially in their bigger gassers.

Lots of 20 year old kettles roaming around out there.
My performer is 14 years old except for some rash around the edge of the lid no reason it won't last another 10 years I do keep it covered. Funny thing is we were discussing the traveler in Feb in a Weber says something big is coming thread. If I was in the market for a portable the fact its not all aluminum like a Q would not deter me at all from buying this and beauty is in the eye of the beholder not trying to offend anyone with a Q but this thing has more cooking space and to my eye is way more attractive, the price is certainly more than reasonable for what you are getting.

As Shane said and I am 67 so I agree: "Personally, I’ll take cooking space, convenience and functionality over lasting forever for $300"

Thought I'd share a couple pics here showing size and heat distribution. The GrillGrates are from my Q1000. I'm not heavily focused on learning all the ins and outs of the traveler right now, so haven't studied things like accurate temp ranges and such. I just wanted a quick visual reference for hot/cool spots.

One interesting tidbit, I've been running with an adapter hose connected to a 20lb tank. I usually shut off the grill by closing the tank and letting it burn out out (like I think most people do with gas grills). It takes a good while for the grill to extinguish, like at least 30 seconds, maybe over a minute. My Genesis and Spirits went out within a few seconds, so seems pretty efficient on fuel.

Thanks for the report. Glad to hear the stand is sturdy. I love my Q but the folding stand is a disappointment.

Does it come with the heating bars?

One thing I didn't like about the Q was the exposed gas tube; exposed to drips and spills.

I'm looking for something a little bit bigger than my go anywhere gas grill.
