Welcome to the forum.

You also need food, clothes, jacket, toilet paper, paper towels, charcoal (unless you have a gas grill) lighter to light pilot lights, cork screw (for the wine and glasses) camera, lap top, (we never leave home with out one, or two) dog food for furry kid, dog toys, bags to lean up after pooch poops.

We have 2 of the items in the kitchen you use the most. One home and one in Bertha. Thank heaven fo dollar stores.

Good luck, and see you down the road.


When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

Welcome, an absolute must is couple good flashlights and a plug in light for outside, a fire extinguisher, duct tape, leveling and stabilizer blocks and like everyone said a good tool box. I use an open top bag from lowes and I am in it 5-6 times a day but with mine something is always breaking or leaking.

I agree with everything, you just can not get it all in the trailer.

I do carry a 12 ton bottle nose jack and a board/piece of metal to put under jack (soft ground) and a wrench or socket to fit the large nut on the wheel hub. I have done brake repairs, adjustments and tire changes while on the road and on the side of the road.

A good quality burbon is essential for when you finish.

Some eye candy is always a plus in any trailer and makes travelling more fun too!

We always carry a few of those extra-large ziplock bags, good for storing and protecting all manner of things----wet, dirty, susceptible to humidity, odorous, etc.
🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
