Tent camped for 20 years before becoming a RVer. Sadly, my rig is too big for my favorite campground.

Has to be my Keurig coffee maker, nothing like my favorite Newman's blend first thing in the morning. Next would be the BBQ grill for the evening meals.

Thats too bad. I see you still camped in a popup last year. Take that thing back to that campground! Which campground is it?

I am changing over from a popup to a hybrid and hope that doesnt happen to me. I'm actually hoping to do some boondocking this summer.

We use our Ice maker more than anything else, We keep a cooler outside and keep dumping ice in it and also have plenty for our cocktails. The next thing would be our folding coffee table.

They are only able to show State Park rules but I am well versed in State Forest rules. National Forests generally are more tolerant of gathering up firewood but Park staff in MN were the ones that tried to dissuade me from gathering and wondered why I didnt just buy wood. I was told by one staff worker that I had better not "fill my truck" or they will shut me down. I let them know that I didnt have a big truck and I was only staying for three nights at the campground! I'm not aware of private campground rules in MN as I dont stay at any. I stay at National Forest campgrounds frequently in Wyoming and they are the absolute best when it comes to gathering up dead and down wood.

When you say background...do you mean you worked for the State Parks...or do you mean you generally camp at State Parks?
Wow,

The provincial parks here in Sask have staff that collect all the wood and cut it to proper length. There are a few compounds in each campground and you just drive into them and pick what you need.

I guess my favorite is--------------

I guess my favorite is, aside from the grill, Boliy Generator, remote control is my little "STOW-A-BIKE" from amazon.com. You see my TV has a 6'5" bed and no room for a bike. So the little folding, six speed bike is a neat little trick for stowing in the lower stowage compartment of the 5 VER

Our outdoor propane fireplace. Can be used during a no burn season.

I do like my "Little Red Campfire", as Caper pointed out, that can be used during burn bans. It's just not the same without an outside fire going.

We do the same thing. Our Epson Moviemate was the greatest purchase ever. It's capable of producing a 30' picture with amazing clarity. We use it at home by the pool all summer and have a portable screen for camping. The kids take the Xbox Kinect camping and it's hilarious to watch on a big screen. Always draws a crowd.
