Best Item for our old Airstream

Just picked up a '73 Overlander. Quick question for all the folks who have Airstreamed for a while:

What items have you picked up that have made camping either easier or more enjoyable?

I'll assume you have a perfectly functioning Airstream. If you don't have one already, I'd suggest getting a new awning.

I have a 62 model, my kitchen works fine, but I plan to carry along a cooks essentials pot for cooking browning whatever I need... since I am a little nervous on using my gas stove...

My Dometic was validated to cool three cases comfortably during the check-out.

When out with the family, I carry considerably less.

Seriously, a well-functioning Airstream is all I need. The installation of a weather radio, though, made my wife more comfortable, and DVDs for the Boyz (should rain keep us indoors) makes camping easier.

Our BBQ is always the best addition. We love doing almost all of our cooking outdoors and the BBQ (propane) makes life so simple and pleasureable. OK, that and two very comfortable lounge chairs.

They were available from Target Stores and may still be but were on clearance the last time we looked. They come up on EBAY often for considerably more $$$$. They have flannel PJ's too. You may look online at Target.com.

A full tank of water works wonders.

Drink, shower, wash dishes....and to conserve the drinking water, I bring one of those collapseable 5 gallon water thingies so that washing hands and such can be done without taking up the limited fresh water supply.

Actually I think the perfect thing for anyone with a new to them Airstream is probably a Tow Vehicle!

Good Disposables

Good paper towels (double as napkins, heavy duty kleenex, even filters for sink drains so coffee grounds, etc. don't go down the drain into the gray tank). Good disposable dishes for picnics, boondocking... to save water usage.

I opt for the Electric/LP water heater and a small electric frig. that should fit into your 27 footer. They take away a lot of worries when camping where you have a hook-up or a generator. I think my husband would vote for the electric jack.
