Tool kit

I am a semi newbie for the airstream world but not to the repair world. We live in western Montana, and do some boon docking and also some road trips.

I have another 5000 mile road trip coming up and was trying to cut down on my tool inventory. I have a 1982 Excella 31 I have replace everything but axles on the running gear, have pulled trailer 7,500 miles since I purchased and only one water leak, plumbing.

Most of the tools have been used by others or for routine maintenance. The tools are carried in back of my pickup in 3 tote boxes, and 1 small grip, as I call it what i use all the time grip, Attached is my current list for tools I carry. I feel sometimes I carry to much and sometimes maybe not enough. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Please let me know if I really do need therapy, as my wife says.

The one thing I learned from my gramp ( old AG dealership)was if its mechanical it will break.
