New purchase preparation

Hi all - I'm still new to this forum and after some great advice - we settled on purchasing a 2018 international serenity 30'. I read on some forum recently - someone had made a list of "essentials to get" for your airstream. Ican't seem to find the thread - does anyone know how I access it - just want to get my "shopping list" started before our airstream arrives January 2018!!

You want to outfit it as you would a tiny home, in my opinion...all the essentials for living, on a smaller scale and according to your particular wants and needs.

No point in trying to remember and schlep everything out and then back in for every trip.

Have fun!

Maggie

I read those first 2 lists and it scared the hell out of me. After 50 years camping, this coming spring, I have not found a need for most of the suggestions let alone room the carry them. If you need them you don't want to go camping. Then again some get the Camper World catalog and pick one item from each page.

Never used wheel locks, sewer chemicals, bleach on faucets, or sewer seal. The things missing from the second list were a left hand smoke shiftier, a screen room, lounge chairs, and the bate for snipe or green bear hunting.

I am sorry for the comments but you will discover what you need as you need it not from drinking the cool aid.

OK, thanks for the dose of daily humor.
