Shake down preparations

I'm sitting in my living room, surrounded by the things we bought yesterday, and contemplating the list of things to arrive via Amazon before we pick up our dream on Halloween. (Keep in mind that we've been tent camping for 25yrs, so we have some stuff)
Tire gauge
Sewer hose
Water hose
Water filter
Leveling blocks
Torque wrench
Sheets
New fuzzy blanket (Because the whole point is to drink coffee and be cozy!)
Java Press
New outside chairs
Outdoor rug
Indoor runner
Dry food storage containers
Cutting boards
Ziploc bags
Mixing bowls
Measuring cups

Its a battle between
"Yay, so many cool things!"
Or
"Oh my lord we just bought an Airstream, let's not spend money ever again!"

Let me know what you think we are missing, our brains are so frazzled

Big old box of nitrile gloves. All the fashionable people wear them at the dump station.

Or perhaps a container of hand soap.

Basic tools should always be in your tow vehicle.
A roll of duct tape is always a good idea.
Wheel chocks to keep the trailer in one place.
Measuring cups....zip loc bags.....there must be some pots and pans some where?

Small electric fan. I have a battery model with 20volt tool battery.

Calm down, if you've tent camped for years you will be doing it now with a really stiff tent.
