We keep everything we need to leave at a moment's notice almost. Essentials like TP, cleaners, etc. are always checked to ensure we have enough on hand. Have a check list. Extra clothes and non perishables always in there. Since we had the RV barn built, the fridge stays on, so even frozen foods are pretty much stocked. Love camping.

we keep ours stocked with dry goods, towels, utensils, etc. between trips. The only thing we load up is food and clothes.

You're right I should have stated scheduled departure got rescheduled. Because Mama is never wrong, I just was mistaken about which time zone to use.

Condiments, sugar, salt/pepper, spices, oils and general staple items.

At the end of season everything comes into the house and is used up. Fresh start in the spring.

So from one trip to the next all we have to worry about is what to eat and what to wear.

Our motorhome has it's own towels, sheets, cookware, everything like a house. We just pack our clothes and perishable foods when we take a trip. It's parked on our driveway, so it's easy to get ready to go.

We have all the stuff to "Live" in our trailer, in our trailer all the time. My wife doesn't like to keep food even if non perishable or sealed in the RV, so it became her job to stock it up and I will occasionally empty it out when we get home. Otherwise it's just clothes and toys for the baby that move in and out!

March through October we keep ours ready to go. That is from me coming home on a Friday and back the truck up to it hook up and go. We may stop for pop and bread. But that's about it. We keep laundry detergent in the camper and wash all our stuff after each trip before we come home. October till march we just get all the food out and shut down for winter

We keep everything except perishable foods on our TT. Weather can change quickly so we're prepared for that as well. Storage is limited but with the use of space saver bags and a 1 1/2 gal shop vac we keep on board, we can fit more in the drawers and closet. That goes for bedding, blankets, towels and clothes. We keep a weeks worth of clothes on the TT.

We keep the usual kitchen and bath items stocked in the trailer. We load up the clothes and bed linens a couple days before we leave. I turn the fridge on too. The food is stocked the day we leave because we live in the country and I don't want to give mice the opportunity to get into the trailer. I've heard that dryer sheets with peppermint oil in the pantry can eliminate mice issues, anyone had any experience with that?
