Post First Time RV Questions

Hello;

We just purchased a 2021 Bambi, which we haven't even seen or received yet. We have no idea what comes with the purchase but we wanted to be prepared before we go to the dealer to pick it up.

I have never owned an RV so the experience is completely new.

What types of things do you pre-purchase before obtaining your RV? Do we need chains? We did have a hitch installed on our vehicle and the braking sytem. Do we need hoses, how many? What are some of the very basics needed beyond the stuff you store inside?

Thank you,

Pam

First off, welcome to the Airstream family!

And finally, don’t forget your food and clothes...whew what a list! To pick-up your trailer at the dealer, you won't need all these things - but it is a good checklist once you have it to get an idea of what you might need. Some of the "biggies" will come with the trailer...

This list can obviously can be "tweaked to fit" your style of Airstreaming. Good luck and have fun!

Hi Pam, welcome to the forum, greetings from central Kentucky

Personally, I wouldn't pull my AS if there were difficult road conditions. I don't use chains and would just wait it out somewhere.

Something you don't tell us is what is your level of expertise for repairs etc. I'll suggest some basic things to get you going. You'll find that the more you travel, the more you need.

Disposable gloves - Lots of them, buy a couple of boxes. They are handy for a lot of things. (Harbor Freight, use their coupons.)

Wheel chocks - Blocks to hold the AS in place BEFORE you disconnect. If you're new AS has tandem axles you might want to get some chocks to reduce movement when you're in the trailer. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Tire covers - They cover the tires to protect them from the UV rays.

Sewer hose(s) (stinky slinky) - We bought ours used so I don't know if they come with a new AS. They are stored in the rear bumper storage. Pull the black water handle, let it drain, close, pull the gray water handle, close. Use the hose at the dump station to rinse out the slinky and the area around the hole.

Drinking water hoses - They need to be for drinking water, not gardening.
You'll need at least 2, short and long for the water filter.

Outside water filter - You need a hose to go from the spigot to the filter, then from the filter to your city water connection. There are various filters, some are disposable and some have disposable inserts.

Pliers - Handy tool for many uses, like tightening the hose to the filter, turning on/off the water because your neighbor took your spigot handle.

Bubble Level - We have a 2-way bubble level we put on the counter so we know when the AS is fairly level. It's small,don't remember when I got it, probably Lowes in the tool area.

Spare set of keys - keep a set of keys in your tow vehicle and a set of keys for the tow vehicle in the AS. Keep a set of keys on yourself and anyone traveling with you.

Outside mat - We found that having a mat outside the AS door really reduces the amount of dirt and sand tracked inside. We got a Prest-O-Fit Aero-Weave Breathable Outdoor Mat from Camping World that's the length of our AS. It dries quickly and folds up fairly small. We got the extra large Ziploc 10 gallon bags to store it in. (be careful when opening the Ziploc the first time or the plastic will tear.) Available at Lowes.https://www.lowes.com/pd/Ziploc-4-Co...ags/1000358687

Dust pan and brush (or broom) - You'll need to sweep up sand and dirt (later on we got a small leaf blower for the outside mat.) https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...ge-shop-blower

Flamingoes - Gotta have yer yard art https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thermometer - Outside thermometer so you know what the outside temp is.

Bungee cords - We have a number of different size bungee cords to keep thing from moving when we travel. We keep some on the Zip Dee awning rafters to prevent them from opening when traveling. It happened to the PO. They are also good for securing drawers, doors and objects to keep them from falling/moving when traveling.

Tools - This is where I don't know your level of expertise. Whatever amount of tools you have at home, take a tool kit with you. You'll need wrenches and screw drivers of all sizes, oil, grease, rags and some rubber gloves. Harbor Freight is your friend

Water container - Some places are dry camping or only electric. If you go there you will need to have your water tank filled. If you stay long you may need to refill. You can hitch up the AS and take it to the spigot or you can use a 5-gallon plastic container to bring it to your campsite. I have a container.

That's a start, you'll find there are many other things you will want as well as need. Good luck, congratulations on the new AS.

Hi,

To answer the first part of your question, what comes with the purchase depends on your dealer. Some dealers throw in a bunch of "get you started" stuff, some don't. Ask your dealer if they are providing anything in addition to what specifically comes with the trailer. My dealer provided a water hose, sewer hose, toilet paper, dogbone power adapters, maybe some other small stuff. That is what I remember.

The trailer itself will come with your power cable, cranks for the tongue jack and stabilizers, awing pole, bedding, decorative pillows, whatever parts came with your appliances, TV/blue ray player remotes, and a manual set. Maybe an Airsteam door mat. If you have the electric awning you'll get some additional tools for that. I think that's about it.

Steve

Keep it simple. You want to learn how to maintain your batteries. That will be your biggest obstacle at first.

Get the trailer before you get the stuff!

Set it up at home and work through the systems until you feel comfortable and know what you want/need. Some dealers offer kits for start up camping, others have gifts and samples that they give you and classes on how to do things. Start with a maiden voyage somewhere close to home (an hour or so) and near civilization so you can get whatever it is you need. Last maiden voyage, we forgot COFFEE and something to make it in...had to go shopping, a trip that started with the closest Starbucks.

For everything on those complete lists there are umpteen various choices and you probably won't have a clue what you'll feel most comfortable with until you are trying to set up and store stuff.

Example: Bubble Level. Yes, you need some sort of level, but there are oodles of choices from really cheap to very expensive and everything in-between. There is even a RV gadget that had a permanent mount inside and communicates with the driver's phone so there is no need for 2 people (one to drive, one to watch the level) to level the trailer. For years we traveled with a 3' contractors' level because my husband firmly believed he had to check the levelness of the trailer in many places (the door, the floor, the kitchen counter -and he used it two or three ways in each place). An old timer laughing at his antics brought that nonsense to a sudden halt after a mere 20 years. Guess what? If the frame is level, the trailer is level -and suddenly 2 inexpensive stick on levels were all that we needed. There is also a free app for your phone that works really well! You just use your phone as a level.

And that is true for absolutely everything. Take your time, don't rush and don't worry...yep, you'll still get the wrong things but it won't seem so tragic if you can return them. This message brought to you by a lady who bought Corelle dishes for a trailer (and exotic square pattern) and THEN discovered they didn't fit where they were supposed to go!

Know thyself!

That list is very comprehensive, but there are things I've never purchased. An Axe?
Maybe I misinterpreted your question, but to go camping the first time, your Airstream should come with full propane tanks, a power cord for 30 amp., a rod for the awning, a crank for the electric jack (if you have one) and maybe a cheap sewer hose.
I'd buy a better sewer hose and keep the one supplied(?) as a spare. Most people like the Camco RhinoFlex.
You'll need a hose for fresh water, I'm happy with the 25' Zero G. It should be approved for drinking water. And it's easy to store.
I'd add a water pressure regulator for the faucet end to protect your hose, JIK. They're inexpensive $12.
I'd get some leveling blocks, I have the Tri-Lynx 00015 Lynx Levelers - 10 Pack and they've served me well.
I'd get a "dog bone" that allows your 30 amp plug to use a 50 amp receptacle and one to use a 20 amp receptacle. It's handy to get the fridge cooled down at home before leaving.

Now, we get serious. A surge protector. I have a nice 30 Progressive Industries, that cost about $100, but the top of the line can be triple that.
Consider a hitch lock for the trailer to prevent it being towed away. Prices range from $50 to $300. Theft is very, very rare, but if it's yours, it hurts.

Now you're ready to hit the road, stock up on paper plates or Corelle, some silverware, some storage containers. I avoid real glasses and ceramic dishes.
Have fun.

Since your getting a Bambi you should have a bottle jack (need a board under it) to change tires. Also socket, extension, breaker bar and torque wrench or torque adapter. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0852JLJ...v_ov_lig_dp_it

A great opportunity

If it's not too late to inquire, I will sell you my 2019 Bambi Sport for 45k. I have many, many extras: solar, extra batt, fat starter kit and more. Located in Tucson, AZ.

Find a place to “camp”.. best is your driveway.

Everything you need for a week can be done in the AS... if you need stuff from house, buy lighter wine for the AS... you don’t want to be moving stuff around between trips. If you “store”, you may want to put stuff in big storage bins. You can leave in the AS to keep away from “pests”.. like towels, plates, utensils...first aid items... you get the idea. You can even move into home and clean everything to prep for next getaway.

Edit: you really do need to know how to change tires, Hitch, Level & Unhitch/secure the AS Before you get going. And remember, experience is the best teacher for survivors

Great, thank you.

I haven't purchased one thing and I just wasn't sure I needed anything prior to picking it up in Phoenix and being able to haul it home, over 100 miles north. Just wanted to make sure I had the necessaries so that I don't have to hit up the Home Depot etc with a trailer on the back of my car. I have never pulled an RV so the whole adventure should be interesting.

Darn, wish I had known. I already put a deposit on this and signed for it to be ordered.

Submitted “tongue in cheek”! Anyone else want to see InsideOuts’s hookup and unhook checklist? Also, I might have missed her recommended brand of toothpaste! What an exhaustive list! IF I had seen that before getting an AS, I might have been too intimidated to “close the deal” on the trailer?

As new RVers, the BEST advice I can give is to attend an RV Boot Camp once it's safe to start holding them again. I read that the Escapees RV Club was going to run a virtual RVBC. There is SO MUCH to learn re being safe and efficient when using ANY RV. RVBC graduates are SMARTER RV buyers and, SAFER RVers.

As for your immediate question; contact the selling dealer and get IN WRITING, exactly what IS included with your purchase. If you don't have it in writing (emails are OK), the dealer has no obligation of providing it.

NOTE: I believe that the Escapees RV Club created the concept of RVBC but now, others groups offer similar training.

Make your first couple of couple of trips close to home and/ or a Walmart or equivalent. You will figure out what you need and don’t need and anything else will be a short trip and a credit card away.
