What's in your toolbox?

I'm starting to put together a list of must have tools for the trailer. What do you consider to be "must have" tools to have with you for a camping trip?

I carry a small air compressor, bottle jack, a voltmeter, cordless drill and the usual assortment of hand tools. It seems I always need them for something!
