Ours is fully stocked with everything except perishables. I quite often throw a small carry on together the night before to bring the clothes I am in the mood to wear, but everything is *really* already there...for all weather conditions.

Why make things more difficult than a quick stop to the grocery store for 'milk and cheese'?

I keep the TT stocked with all the stuff the house has including booze, toiletries,staples. I do wait to load my clothes and the dogs stuff until the day I load the fridge.

Keeping RV Stocked

We keep everything in camper all season. We have things specifically for camper. We just stock with perishables day before we leave.

We are pretty much set that if the moods strikes we can be on the road in 30 to 45 minutes from the time we get home from work.

I am a guy, I can ruff it. Sure is nice to have fresh clothes around. I pack those thing with-in 15 minutes of departure, not a big deal. The DW tries to be like this, Ha, add another 45 minutes. This is a small impact to the departure time.

The real gotcha is finding that the items that were put into the camper to live, have been brought into the house for special cleaning or for whatever reason (I am not worthy to know this logic) and have not been returned to the camper.

Was it Mac Davis's song that said "It's Hard To Be Humble, When You As Perfect As Me"?

I have separate things for TT. My DW does not. I have a weekend worth of clothes in TT. DW packs the night before. I ALWAYS have a bag packed and ready to go year round.

We each have a few clothing items in the motorhome like warm jackets, warm socks, and pajamas. The rest of the clothes for in the day before we leave. The weather forecast changes too much to pack early.

I like to leave almost everything in the RV, ready to hit the road. DW does too, in theory. I always seem to be schlepping lots of stuff into the RV the morning we leave, aaaaargh. I suffer, mostly in silence.

Always stocked and ready to go , what with hurricanes , storms but mostly for distant family emergencies . When we return from a trip we are ready to go again long before twenty four hours have passed.

Enough of everything to last for 2 weeks. The only thing I bring before a trip is a Glock.

Love your style!

We have stocked our rv's completely over the past several years. In fact, today we took the clean clothing from the last trip back out to the MH. And when we got back from the market today, several things made their way to the MH before other items came into the house. But, there are a few "important" things that don't stay in the MH - they are brought out the day we are leaving to go camping.
