I have a "staging" area in our bedroom that is making my husband crazy. I keep coming the house with something to add to the pile.

PRACTICAL (as get used the most, if not every trip):

1. Solid rubber chocks from Harbor Freight
2. 30 amp to 50 amp electrical adapter (as I have encountered several campground outlets where the 30 amp outlet was faulty/loose)
3. Plate Caddies
4. X-Chocks and Valterra RV stabilizer underneath the entrance steps.
5. Barker electric tongue jack, to replace the LCI OE one
6. Outdoor mat. I don't guess I realize how much dirt that thing collects until I forgot to bring it last trip. I was constantly sweeping out the trailer with my expandable broom.
7. Fresh water hose quick connect... attached between my RV's fresh water connection and 90 degree elbow with spigot. Saves wear and tear on city connection, relieves pressure off hose, along with a spigot if I need water outside. It takes me about 20 seconds to attach my fresh water hose to the campground supply and my trailer with this setup.

Traded down from a 38 ft Montana 5th wheel loaded with every accessory I could find. To a sc 226rbds which is 25 ft long. I will fit everything I have into it. (LOL)

NO one has mentioned zero gravity chairs!

Yes, I am "gotta buy it, it's for the RF doncha know? everyone else says it's a must have!" afflicted. And yes, when we bought our new V-Lite last year, the guest bedroom became "staging central".

For us the BEST non-essential purchase has been our zero gravity chairs. Better than Ambien when it comes to checkin' eyelids for pinholes.

P.S. wmtire, glad to see you posting. just told DH last night I was worried 'bout ya, haven't seen you post in a few days

Those are BRASS!

Maybe we need to come up with a similar term for RV'ers.

Maybe like FERVOR...Funding Every Recreational Vehicle Optional Refinement
Maybe "Frogals" for these forum members. Lol
