Smile Checklists save us!!

We started with a checklist for our Aliner and modified it for the Coachmen 192RBS. Honestly, I don't know how anyone could own and pull a travel trailer successfully without using a checklist. It has saved us many times for sure!!!
For a few pieces of paper, I can let my mind focus on other things and know that I will most likely travel without damaging my truck or trailer.

Checklists are very helpful. As routine became habit my checklists were modified.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

We have an extensive check list . Got a couple of blocks from home and I said do you have the check list? Nope. Now I guess we need a check list to remember our check list ... getting old.

Are there two of you? If so, one of you should prep the inside, the other the outside unless any activity requires both of you. Once you each think you are done exchange checklists and double check that each item is completed.
Also, try to avoid distractions while walking through your setup or breakdown routines. It is too easy to overlook a step when your neighbors walk up to say howdy or goodbye.

We have developed a routine that we are still improving... for example when DW brings in the slide I know she is done in the trailer and I can lift the stabilizers etc.
