Our 1st "free" camping trip. Had a great time, plenty of food, drinks & clean clothes. The only thing we forgot was to bring down the TV antenna So much for our "free" camping.

We never forgot again!

We usually take at least 3 local (within 30 miles) camping test runs early in the season to eliminate the "list" you're looking for. But to answer the question, I usually forget to restock the coffee grounds... or filters... or sweetener... or creamer and well, the last two can make for one grumpy @$$ wife in the morning.

So, for the love of God, whatever you do, don't forget the "creamer" of your families needs.

But seriously, it's usually something minor like coffee. Anything else that might come up can be remedied fairly easily by making a quick 7 mile trip back into town or we do without until the next round and just make sure we put it on the list and back into the camper for the next time.

Be certain to bring extra camper keys and keep them on your person. Once when our daughter was two she locked herself in the camper accidentaly and could not open the door. My keys were on the hook inside the trailer. Luckily the side compartment was open and my mother in-law was small enough to wiggle thru the opening and up thru the compartment under the dining room table bench.

I bet the camera was inside the tt too.

We were leaving a campground near San Antonio last summer and stoped to dump the trash. We got out of the truck and left the engine running. The Idiot Yorkie locked the doors. Good thing I had the TT keys in my pocket and the second set of truck keys were in the TT. Leason learned make sure the second set of truck keys are in the TT. Make sure the TT keys are in my pocket (second set of TT keys are in the truck glove box). NEVER LEAVE THE TRUCK RUNNING WITH THE IDIOT YORKIE IN CHARGE.

I forgot to bring a hammer; started out tent camping, needed it for the tent stakes! Unfortunately, there was a summer thunderstorm, wind, and heavy rain- the tent blew down around us with us inside!!! What a mess! We all got drenched, and always remembered the hammer from then on!! Randy

Well, since I posted the first reply, I feel pretty fortunate, and haven't forgotten as much as some. I will offer one more piece of advice that works for us. Buy all your toiletry needs just for the camper, toothbrush, comb, shampoo, etc. Put them in a small plastic basket, and make sure they get in the camper. Bring them in only for restocking, and the make sure they return. We also keep bath towels, paper towels, plates/dishes, etc., just for the camper. It may come in and get washed, then get stacked on the dryer as a reminder it needs to go back out to the camper. We have seasonings, (salt, pepper, flour, etc.), silverware, pots, etc., just for the camper, and that is where they stay, during the camping season. Once it turns cold, we use them in the house and then replenish for the next season. Bottom line, without adding a ton of weight, try to keep everything you need in the camper. Now what do you need? You have to figure that out. For survival, water, then shelter, then food. Everything else is just a luxury, and that includes the television remote and a hair dryer. Happy Camping.

We pretty much do the same thing. One thing we always have is a pad and pen in one of the drawers. We take an inventory of what's in the coach, paper plates, cups, napkins, TP, etc. When our trip is over we have generated a list of things to replenish if we didn't need it immediately. If for any reason we are going to the store, the list goes with us and items get purchased and crossed off the list.
