About Coleman Grills
The Coleman company was started by W.C. Coleman who saw a light in the darkness, quite literally.
As a young man, he had decided to take a stroll after a hard day of work where he sold typewriters, on that stroll he saw the light, to more specific he saw a flame that was fueled by gasoline it was the era’s standard lamp. W.C. Coleman was instantly caught by the steady light which enabled even him, with his poor eyesight, to read both small print books and medicine bottles.
With the potential that he saw in the light, he saw a vision for a company that would bring the world into a new light, which eventually came to be synonymous with fun and the outdoors. Now the Coleman name is on just about anything that you can find that has to do with the outdoors, from camping tents and sleeping bags to grills.
Coleman is a trusted name that has been around for quite some time, and over the course of that time, they’ve gathered quite the fan base for their products and company.

Charlies Rating and Final Thoughts of the Coleman Roadtrip
The Coleman Roadtrip is a pretty great value for a small price, it definitely seems to be worth it. It’s easily portable and one of the absolute best things about it is that it is so easy to clean! The porcelain covered grill grates make cleaning it a breeze and frees up more time for you to enjoy.
The matchless ignition is also a pretty great perk that also frees up time. This grill is pretty durable for what it is and handles everyday wear and tear like a boss, it’s great for outdoor grilling with a few friends and family or for a small getaway. It’s also great for a solo trip where you want to get away, unwind, and still eat good food.
One of the only real downsides I’ve found with this grill is that it does not have a built in thermometer, but to be honest, since you should be using a meat thermometer to check the temperature of your food, it really doesn’t seem like that big of a deal to me. All in all, it is a great grill with plenty of features at a great price.
Overall Rating: 4.6 / 5
