Keeping RV Stocked

Better half and I are having a friendly argument about keeping our Lexi stocked between trips, and during the year. Not talking about foodstuffs, but items like clothing, undies, shoes/sandles, ect.
We both have enough clothing to keep seperate stuff in the rv without needing it. I like to and do keep clothing enough for a week in the rig, ready to go. Includes everything from jeans to socks, shirts to belts.
Wife, on the other hand, will wait till evening before we leave to assemble her wardrobe and truck it out in a load or two.
Just curious as to preferences.
Grumpy

Sounds like our house. The only things I restock immediately after a trip are things like paper towels, cleaning supplies, etc., so the essentials are always ready to go. I like to start packing about a week before a trip and usually pack food and clothing two or three days ahead. My wife, on the other hand, likes to wait until the last minute.

I leave all my toiletries with the exception of toothbrush in the trailer once the season hits. Wife will not leave any personal stuff in the trailer. I still do clothes the night before. Wife does everything the night before. I know the feeling!

Maybe I should add that we hit the road about every two to three weeks, usually for 4 to 7 days. Longer trips every few months. So its not like we don't know when or for how long we'll be out.
I litterly keep a seperate set of clothing in the Lexi ready to go.

The trailer has a lot of it's own stuff:

Linens, towels, pillows.
Hair dryer, toothbrushes, toiletries, soaps, cleaners.
Certain clothes like jackets, shoes, slippers, hats, walking shorts and some very nice rain wear.
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.

Ours is completely stocked with everything - clothes, bedding, toiletries etc - kitchen has all the comforts of home also

Also keep most basic items in pantry stocked and take bread, milk and other fresh things as needed

Who wants to pack every trip??

Depending on the season, ours stays stocked with clothes, food and toiletries ready for the next adventure. I do remove the TV's using a fast mount since I don't lock ours. The fridge is stocked if trips are less than 2 weeks apart.

As far as bedding, towels, soaps, paper, ect, and all kitchen stuff, all seperate and dedicated to the Lexi, and it stays there year round.
I just keep trying to get DW to keep a week or two's worth of clothing in the rig, and not have to worry about loading it the night before. She claims she dosen't know what she wants to take until the night before. I keep telling her we're "camping", not going to a black tie event, and to just stock with the stuff we always wear...shorts, tees and pullovers, jeans, ect.
I guess it's just a loosing battle.

Pretty much.

The hardest part of any RV trip is patiently waiting for Sweet Wife to get her stuff in the trailer so we can leave. She packs up mostly "the morning of"

Slowly, very slowly, getting better at it.
