I agree the little writing pad and pen is important.
We use that to write down things we want to bring next time or
remind us of things that need attention.

We also have a camping list that is on our computer desktop.
B 4 each trip we print that and it lays on the kitchen counter
to get each item scratched off as it's loaded or checked.

Our list is much shorter than it used to be when we
tent camped because then we had to bring everything!
Now many items are left in the trailer such as extension
cords and hoses and folding chairs etc....
ANYTHING you need to load or check each trip needs
to be on a list!!
Here's our list.

YOU need to make your own list!!

Tools. Dont forget to bring tools. Me being the kind of guy who works with mechanical things in my job and my hobbies I never forget to bring lots of tools. Things break so I bring lots of tools. Last summer we were camping in Virginia and the folks next to us had a nice boat. Problem was one of the freeze plugs on the inboard motor rusted through and had to be replaced. Me to the rescue. Installed new freeze plug and had it fixed in about an hour. You should have an adequate amount of tools. Sears sells really great kits for under $200.00. Just my opinion.

I have never heard the term freeze plugs before, up here we call them frost plugs, and when i was mechanics school they were called welch plugs. On our second camping trip i forgot to bring my axe that i just bought, funny thing is that i didn't need because it snowed that weekend. And i always brings tools maybe too many ,,well that what my wife says LOL

We mounted a white board inside the door, so that when we discover something we "should" have brought we can jot it down and add it when we get home...otherwise, for those things we "must" have and forgot, there is Wal-Mart...and then it stays IN the trailer...
