The list is great. But bring CASH in many bills: 1's, 5's 10's, 20's, etc. Sometimes, it's an all cash "thing"

And also bring change. We ran into all cash toll booths in Pennsylvania and Illinois and had to go back to the trailer to get change while we waited at the unmanned toll booth that would not take credit cards or bills! Quarters are nice at the laundromat also.

Empty prescription pill bottles are a great way to carry quarters.

And on the subject of laundromats, a handful of Tide Pods in a Ziploc bag make carrying laundry soap easy.

Here's how old I am: Another great way to carry quarters is in the little plastic cannisters that 35mm film cassettes used to come in.

Hi, I keep quarters in both, pill tubes and 35mm canisters. I use liquid detergent and use a shot glass to measure it.

Quarters go in the washers and dryers in public laundromats.

I thought that 15 was about a dozen more than I needed, but then noticed something about "commonly used for FILM CANISTER ROCKETS"?!

So then google led me to this:

After watching this guy's video, I'm buying all of the film canisters.

After watching this video, my husband also suggested using the canister that his diabetic test strips come in. Would have to snip the strap but should work the same way. Way cool and not as sticky as the mentoes in a coke.

Excellent suggestions on what to bring. My contribution is on what NOT to bring, as I did buy all this 'sfuff', taking payload space on my F350, weight to carry around, and NEVER used so far. Unless you plan in boondocking, you can save yourself the money and space:

Generators. I got 2 Honda Handi 3KW each that in parallel provide twice that much juice. I started them both once to make sure they work.

Truck tool box with a gas tank (for the generators, the truck is diesel), 46 gallons of it, gas not used and obviously getting stale.

Picknick table. All RV parks offer that (at least the ones we visited).

Patio mat. Is huge, takes a lot of space. Never used it either, still in the expensive canvas bag we had made for it (also made bags for lounge chairs, BBQ grill and picnic table).

BBQ grill. We rather go to restaurants or friends homes that invite us.

Compressor. To winterize. It is huge, there are other ways to winterize.

Huge tool box with every possible nut, nut driver, wrench, etc. Way overboard unless you truly enjoy the work.

Router. We got a Pepwave (Peplink) SOHO Surf for which we waited two months. We connect that to the Verizon Jetpack which is already a wireless router and puts the signal in the air for our devices to use. For us, the wireless routers is redundant.

Dyson space heater (A9). Too big and expensive. Bought one at a sale in Target so we keep it in the house. For the AS a Voronado is (IMHO) much better and a lot cheaper, we love it. Second smaller ceramic space heater for the bedroom aft.

Lawn chairs (from the Airstream website) while solid, pretty and comfortable, have yet to use them once. More stuff to carry, make canvas bags for, take up payload space. Just our experience YMMV.

Yes to have: a drill to a) retract/extend the stabilizing jacks, b) operate the hitch if batteries die, c) remove the lock nut over the propane tanks, etc. A torque wrench to replace a tyre with the spare, set/release the locks of the Blue Ox sway bars instead of the handle that comes with it. Clear elbow for the waste hose. Marine quality room fans by the TVs. Wireless camera for the inside. Nest Protect. 3 sets of every key.
