Hi, on our last trip, I carried a five gallon gas can filled with gas and a large water jug filled with water; We have run very low on gas before and we actually ran out of water as we were hooking up to a full hook-ups sight. We were boondocking for a few days. I did not have to use either of these, but on a trip like this, I would recommend it. From Southern California to and through Alaska and back in 50 days and more than 10,000 miles.

Dah List

It is impossible to remember what to take/bring/replace. I have three lists, each for the van, the trailer and the motorhome. During a trip, I take notes of what is missing, depleted or needs to be added/deleted (my wife tells me that I should enjoy the scenery instead). Once the trip is completed, supplies are replenished immediately so that the vehicle is always ready to travel.
I will be glad to share my list with anyone who will request it by email. It is three pages long. Be sure to specify the type of vehicle (trailer, motorhome, etc) or you will get three lists.

Cheers,
Giuseppe

I've done lots of tent camping, and inevitably one of my first homecoming chores is to make a list of stuff to bring ...next time.

Since I love lists, and I've never done the trailer thing before, I thought I'd ask the experienced to share their Ultimate Airstream Road Trip List.

Anything goes - whether it's tools, kitchen utensils, stuffed animals for company - whatever you put on your list.

And I'll share mine...when I come home!

What a great list! If I had found peanut butter on there somewhere I would have said, complete.

warm blankets for sure. extra pillows. my chairs and table. tables cloths for campground picnic tables.i keep all of our hygiene needs in basket. therefore it can be carried to the shower. although we have a shower i carry it just in case Houston has a problem.i guess i'm a little primitive because i don't carry a sat. dish. sharp knives. i always for get those!

I have found the most useful item to carry to help solve those "I forgot to bring the flimgibbet!" problems is a six pack of beer. Take it with you when you go to the guy in the next camping spot with the huge 5th wheel, 6 slideouts, two labradors, and dually Dodge and ask to borrow his flimgibbet.

This is a very useful thread! I wish we had thought sooner to keep a notebook to record all of our trips in!

I have friends who claim that they pack "tea & crackers". Others tell me: If you forgot it, you don't need it.
I, instead, have a list for our motorhome, trailer and red-neck-converted van. Each list is vehicle specific that reminds me of everything I need to do before during and ending a trip, as well as all the items, including food I need to pack for the trip (at age 73 we carry a lot of baggage).
Anyone interested in my almighty list, please requested it by email at joecodi@clearsightusa.com. Please specify type of vehicle (MH, trailer).
Cheers.

I carry a laptop computer. Each day I take a few minutes to log the days most memorable events. If in transit, I log location mileage and fuel expense.
With such detailed records I can always refer to it for info on the location, route, eateries, etc. Photos supplement the experience.
Cheers

The list keeps growing

Many thanks to everyone for the great lists. I'm a newbie and getting ready to head out on my first solo shake down cruise. I can pick out a good Merlot, but I have no idea which fuses I might need. Also, do I need a water pressure regulator?

Absolutely you'll need a regulator and leave it attached to your white hookup hose so you never forget to use it.
