I just have to round up some essentials for the trip. So I don't forget anything, does anyone have any thoughts on what I should take with me to travel 2300 miles to pickup a MH and get it back?
Will probably come home along route 66. If anyone has any campground recommendations it would be appreciated.
We plan to do the same thing in about 3-4 months. We'll be going from Oregon to Ohio to pick up a 3051S at RV Wholesalers too.
I have been anticipating everything that we will need for the trip back and hope we can get it all in the PT Cruiser that will be our toad.
Try to visualize what you would need in a motorhome:
Towing equipment for the car (towbar,hitch, etc)
Kitchen utensils, etc. if you will be cooking and eating in.
clothing, of course
set of hand tools...just in case
fire extinguisher, safety equipment, lantern or flashlight
personal items, toothpaste, shampoo etc.
We figure that we will be eating in restaurants on the way there and before we head back we'll hit a supermarket and stock up on food and other things like paper towels, paper plates etc.
I'm sure I've missed a few items but I keep thinking of more as time goes on.
Good luck, we'll be interested to know how your experiences were when you get back.
