I can hook up my Airstream with no problems but I couldn't figure out the car transport hitch (and neither could the U-Haul it guy)!

Most of the above. We've been on the road for the last 4 months,so when we go the "distance", I pack the Honda and of course always the Mr. Turbo. At the present time we're located at the NTAC A/S park in Hillsboro. Great place.
Best,

Hi, I bring almost everything mentioned above plus a few really good credit cards. I keep most of my tools in the tow vehicle.

Note: My wife brings me too; And I came with tools too, but my wife won't let me bring them all on Airstream trips. I would have to have a Box Van for a tow vehicle to bring all of my tools. So I do all my fix'n at home.

I was about to panic until Barry added "Duct Tape" to the list! Why heck, the University of Maine offers graduate courses in "Duct Tape Use!" It's even common knowlege that the color of duct tape was carefully selected to match Airstream trailers.

As yes, the infamous Duct Tape. It has saved my bacon a bunch of times over the years although I notice it's hard to get the good quality stuff now. I have to go to the commercial ducting supply places to get it, otherwise the stuff that you get elcheapo just doesn't cut the mustard. I can even repair my credit cards with them if my wife cuts them up so I can't buy more trailer and car parts .

.............carry just about EVERYTHING with me when I travel since my service van is ALSO the TV for my 19CCD. If I don't have it in the van......YOU DON"T NEED IT!!

Most of my problems are electrical or plumbing so I'll add: Teflon tape, Channel Lock pliers, a variety of spare wire, wire strippers, and wire nuts.

The other things that will ruin your day in a big way can be solved with a spare tire and a spare wheel bearing set.

Smooth travels,

Steve

The most important tools I take along for working on the airstream are a coffee pot, and my ice tea jug. For me, knowing when to walk away for a few minutes to regroup and rethink is far and away my most useful mechanical skill.
