Essential supplies?

Hi everyone!
We are not new to camping, but new to Airstreaming. Can you share with me some of the items related to AS's that you see as important to carry with you on your camping trips? Spare parts? Odd tools? The First Aid kit is always up to date and stuffed, and I would like my toolbox to be the same!

A rivet gun with 1/8" aluminum rivets, and a cordless drill with a 1/8" drill bit are good to have. You never know when something may fly off, and be easily reattached with those items.
A small tube of Parbond is good to have also (selaing up leaks).
Other than that, pretty much normal stuff, like a level, jack, lug wrench, hammer, pliers, screwdriver, etc.
Oh, and a can of WD40 and a roll of duct tape.
There are severl threads around that will give you more info, just type "camping supplies" into the search area.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Sometimes it is all about knowing the key words to search for! Thank you for all the suggestions and links. I think I will be busy reading them tomorrow! What a group!
