Just the "basics" - leveling blocks, sheets/mattress pad, placemats (we all need a bit of "culture") throw rugs, tool set, etc. We have so much stuff from tent camping and we're trying to be reasonable when it comes to purchasing extras for the TT. I'll revisit this thread in a few weeks when we're transitioning from tent to camper and let you know. My hubby made a really nice free-standing toilet paper holder, since there is no where in the 8293RKSS to mount one. If I had a picture, I'd post it.
Ok..sorry! Forgot my username and/or password...but I'll see if it let's me post!! I am also waiting on delivery of a 8293rkss!!! Hopefully should have it by the 23rd of this month!! Absolutely can't wait!! In the mean time...cleaning out cabinets instead of buying much untill it comes in!!!!

When did you order yours? We're now in our 9th week since the order was submitted. Hoping for delivery by the end of the month. I can't WAIT! We researched for months until finally deciding on the 8293. The outside kitchen was a MUST. Good luck with yours!!

Yeah, we wanted something with a bathroom bigger than a closet too! LOL. Didn't really need a bunkhouse and the outside kitchen was an absolute MUST. My dealer told me they're really backed up at the factory. (Recession, what recession?!?) It better get here soon - we have reservations for an 8-day trip starting June 18th and we still have to do our "shake down" weekend close to home.

Thread hi-jack alert !!!

To get us back on track --- we have bought more camping chairs than we could ever possibly wear out ! Everything from collapsable in a bag, zero-gravity, ones with attached side tables, etc, etc. Most of them now reside in our basement.

Sorry to hijack the site!! Just so darned excited to be getting a TT after 20+ years of tenting. I searched for about two YEARS for what I considered the "perfect" camping chair. Since I'm vertically challenged, the zero-gravity chair doesn't work for me (my feet don't touch the ground - LOL!!). FINALLY found a directors chair at Cabela's and I love it!! But I'm like you - I collected about 6 chairs in the process, which I've since sold at garage sales. The folding chairs in the bag are the worst.

I know the feeling.. I bought a 2011 Kodiak Hybrid TT last summer, used it 10 nights and knew it wasn't what we wanted. Traded it in for a 2011 Flagstaff 8528ckws in January 2011, took delivery in April and will use it for the first time this coming weekend.


I also have a collection of chairs, but found some directors chairs at Costco that looks and feels great, so far.

I try to make do with just what I really need but sometimes there are exceptions. I wanted a RV sink pan for the kitchen but couldn't justify buying it, not even for $7. Months went by and I kept thinking about it instead of forgetting. After returning a christmas gift I ended up with a small amount of cash so I went to the RV store and got my pan. With it being a gift I had little trouble buying it.

What I like about the dish pan is that it is designed for a RV sink, it fits inside the sink, can hold dishes until washing time, can soak dishes while keeping the sink free, great for holding stuff until needed like bananas, bread, box of donuts, etc...



After using it a few times I can now justify spending money on it.
