Most of us bring way too much stuff, except for ...... and dang it we can't remeber that now so we'll forget it again. First trip a friend had to make a mad dash to their house to get their ticket.

I admit to being powerless over housecleaning and social niceities

Pillows and sugar. Now we have pillows that belong to the trailer, since our campground was only about 6 miles from a Wal-Mart.

The biggest thing I forgot relax more.

There are some great posts on how to outfit your rig, what to include in a toolkit, etc. Read through those and you should be in pretty good shape - we were and we left for nearly two months on our maiden voyage.

Best of luck and have fun,

Our Kids.
I hope you're laughing. Actually by the time we got the MH our kids were grown and on their own so our trips almost always include visits with them.
We do now have two drinking water hoses because of forgetting that first time out.
