We are currently shopping daily to outfit our new baby. Today's purchases included a patio mat, storage boxes and an extra grill grate for the BBQ grill that is ordered and should be delivered tomorrow.

I got the 24 gallon lockable rubber maid storage box per the forum from Amazon.

Amazon.com - Rubbermaid 1172 ActionPacker Storage Box, 24 Gallon - Lidded Home Storage Bins

My 2,000 watt Honda generators came with a large diameter fuel cap with closable vent. It is larger in diameter than the handle is wide, so the storage lid bulges up and will NOT seal. The unit sits on one side of the box and there is a five or six inch space beside the generator for other stuff. So the unit is protected from rubbing other gear and is not readily visible. However the five gallon gas tank and dual feed flat tank do give the impression there is a generator in the back of the truck.

Hi Hibby. You asked about a attachable sunshade I think. Zip-Dee carries one ( read that as $$$) but it is good quality and they offer excellent service and delivery. I have one but have not yet installed it. It snaps onto the awning tube with attachable snaps that they provide. I asked for some additional snaps so that I can put some extras along the tube and move the shade a little if needed. There may be others. It will not roll up with the awning. I'm sure it would add to much bulk to the roll and it wouldn't seat itself to be secured. I hope this answers your inquiry. There may also be other options if you check around.

Aqua enamel pot, pans, stock pot & kettle...very light weight! Thought I'd give them a try before buying the stainless steel Magma nesting set...should work out okay for our first newbie adventures.

Do most folks line their overhead cupboards? Good tips for packing & minimizing contents shuffling around. Do most of you use storage shelves, padding between kitchen gear?

Today we got the Keurig and a few other minor things. The trial run for the Keurig revealed that the new travel mugs are too tall....ugh!

Those are pretty! I love the colors!! I did cover the bottoms of my cupboards and drawers with a nonskid shelf liner. It seems to be working when we towed it to/from the storage lot.

Every flat surface inside the cabinets in ours is covered with non-skid shelf liner. Stuff still slides around, but not as much.

Got the Honda EU2000i and Companion to run my AC and appliances from Wisesales.com. They bundled the oil spout and parallel hookup cable at a reasonable price. Then got the propane conversion from www.motorsnorkel.com. Once you run the generators for 2 hrs (initial burn in) the conversion only took about 10 min. According to my estimates the generator will run 11 hrs at full load on a 20# propane tank so about 20 hrs at 50% load. I also have the hookup to run them directly from my two 40# tanks on the front of the trailer. Only time will tell if this eliminates any carberator issues during storage.

You must have huge mugs. We have the smallest Keurig (B130 Desk Pro) and when we remove the overflow catch we can put in the tall mugs.
