It is hard. Back in the day i used to carry enough tools that I could rebuild the engine on site if needed. I'm not kidding, only thing I didn't have was a piston ring compressor.

Now I pare it down to enough real tools to change tires, enough to fix electrical problems, enough small tools to do a few minor repairs and leave it there.

Now if I ever go on a trip more than 500 miles from home, I'll likely carry a lot more stuff.

In the passthru I carry chairs, foldup table, grill, lights, step, rugs, tote with gray water struff, tote with potable water stuff (white hoses), and various other "camping stuff". I try to keep the passthru as clean as possible. I consider the front compartment to my man cave where I carry all my tools and anything I need quickly and/or that might not be so clean. If I have trouble on the road, I go straight to the front bay for tools/jacks/etc and don't have to pull stuff out of the passthrus. It's safer to be pulling tools out between the truck and FW rather than have my butt stuck out of the passthru in traffic. I also carry chocks and blocks in this area.

Well, so far from what I've read, I'm not really packing anymore "stuff" than anyone else. That's kind of reassuring.

The most fun is at her Dr. appointments (the look on their face) as I have nicknamed her "Tons of Fun"

Hijacking this thread further- more fun was when we would be out shopping, the various overly enthusiastic employee at the register would ask her when she was due. I'd exclaim, "You're pregnant?! I thought you were just fat!!" and then storm out of the store (provided I didn't need to carry anything heavy).

Always left the clerks bewildered.

The wife just laughed.
