"Driveway" camp. Or go to a local KOA for first will find stuff you need/ want. Go to Gwillies or other "reuse" store before buying new stuff.

I would expect the AS to come " outfitted. My used one did.


Peace and Blessings..

A few things you should consider include the packets for the black water tank (my dealer provided a 'starter kit' that included a couple of these), a drain hose for the black water/ gray water tank (also included in my starter kit), a roll or two of the special toilet paper, an adapter that goes from 110 v to the included 30 amp ambilical electric cord (also included in my starter kit), and a couple of 3 foot lengths of 2 x 6 to level your rig (shorter if you have a single axle but I am assuming the 25 foot you listed in your signature block is what you are picking up). Most everything else can be picked up when you discover how nice it would be to have it.

Congratulations on your new trailer!
Get you a WBCCI membership and some camping reservations!
The dealer will usually include an RV "starter kit" which includes a water hose, sewer hose, RV toilet paper, tank chemical- everything you need to leave the dealership and go straight to a campground. You will think of things that you would like to have or that would come in handy as you go.

A Heavy duty power cord extension

I don't know what kind of camping you will be doing, but some state parks have you parked in the grass. The easiest /nicest parking spot might not be right next to the power box. The best RV extension cords are sold in RV supply stores and are sold for less than $100. You won't need one all the time, but when you do need it, you'll be glad you have it.

We have a 16' Bambi so space is minimal but I found a collapsible dish drainer at Target. It fits nicely under the sink.

A patio rug to keep the sand and mud out of the trailer is a wonderful thing.

So, one year later..... what did you end up putting in your Airstream? What would you recommend now to the 1 year ago version of you?

I bought two camp gas grills, neither one fits any of the compartments. Before I buy a third maybe I should measure.

I bought two Smarter tools inverter generators, haven't used them yet.

I bought two sets of Walmart leveling blocks, one set isn't enough.

Got a hitch grip, works good.

Got the bracket jackets to quiet the equalizer hitch, haven't tried them yet.

Bought a bigger tow vehicle. yikes

This is such a personal choice. For me, I have nothing that I do not find beautiful or useful!
We edit often.
You will figure out your items.You may not need a pillow top for your mattress, high thread count sheets, Windsor Court slippers, an All Clad kitchen, full on bar with muddler, art and other decor...
Good luck!
