What is left to buy for my AS

I have been thinking about the thread "what did you buy for your camper today". So I sat down and made a list of items I have purchased for the outside of the AS since we bought the AS 2 years ago. Now I did not include what I already had from my tenting days like lanterns , pots and pans, camp kitchen etc.. Anyway here is my list:

Ford F250 Diesel (2012)
2 Honda 2000 Generators to run AC
Male hitch to fit F250
Cobb Grill
Table for Cobb Grill
Fire in a Can
2 Strongback Chairs
2 Recliners
Outdoor rug
Broom
Small end table
Tablecloth
Set of Stabilizing blocks
Jacks (2)
Air compressor
50 ft water hose
20 ft sewer hose
Screen house
Go Pro Camera
2 coffee pots (all ready had an extra espresso machine)
2 plastic containers for generators
2 gas cans
5 Gal Diesel can
Tire pressure gauge
Tire monitoring system
Megahitch coupler loc
Lock for hitch
Surge Protector

So the question is what is next?

We are getting our AS in a couple months or so...I have not figured out portable grill yet...generators may delay for a bit, undecided....

had to look that one up as I had not heard of it. I might be more inclined to buy the bike rack instead but no one has recommended it.

How about solar and a satellite dish. That's the add on we have in addition to 16" Michelins and Centramatics. All I really want now is to replace my carpet with prego wood or cork. Carpet in a kitchen sucks.

How about a torque wrench?

This is a great list and I think I have some more buying (and packing) to do!
I'm looking to get the above item and I'm not sure what to get. Any suggestions? Digital? Changeable sockets or just get one for lug nut use only...what is the size of lug nuts exactly?

Well, the best crazy over-the-top addition we have made is the dishwasher. Sounds crazy, but it saves a ton of time and water, uses only about 1.5 gallons to wash a full load, and has its own built-in water heater so we can still have hot showers after dinner. It's a win! Plus, it stores the dishes as well! (of course, we have a large crew-- we use many more dishes than most Airstreamers!)

What kind of dish washer is it, and does the heater run off of AC current or propane?

Your list was was mostly like ours. We added:
new TV F350 with the 6.7 litre diesel. Very nice!
Outdoor led light strings (seasonal)
Kayak/Canoe rack for our truck
2 Kayaks/1 Canoe
stand up bike rack for the bed of the truck
portable waste tank
heat tape/insulation for water line to hookup on AS
very nice espresso appliance
very nice Belgian waffle maker
Tempurpedic mattresses
replacing all interior lighting with led's

Want list:
replace flooring (scheduled for sept)
Cuisinart 2 qt ice cream maker (soon)
replace exterior lights with led's (starting this winter)
Airsafe hitch (spring 2014, if not sooner)
sat tv... have thought over and over on this. went so far as to canceled an order... if I had this I would justify being "at home" in the AS instead of fishing, kayaking/canoeing, biking, cooking the evening meal and watching a movie before bed, walking our dog Rachel, taking pictures of nature and wildlife, etcetera,,, so to date this is a nix
