If you have room, a floor jack...

If we'd have had one in Mexican Water, AZ, when we had our last Marathon tire blowout, it would have saved us six hours sitting by the side of the road and $400 for a tow truck to come Cortez, Co., to change the tire (later reimbursed by our insurance company).

That's the first thing I bought when we stopped at the next WalMart.

I'm still thinking about my top 10, but I do believe it appears that the first item I need is a second trailer, utility, to tow all the top 10 necessary items!

All that is needed is food and drink. The rest just stuff we think we need. I have a 20 page list of stuff I think I need.

A well stocked bar is the most important thing for a road trip, Cheers !
