Kaadk,
Thank you for the link. I will have to read through it with my coffee in the morning. It is quite different from being a reader and follower of the RV life to now living it. I have not pulled my firist mile with my new TT yet I can tell that this new endeavor will change me/us forever. Thank you for the help

Absolute musts

1. Toaster Oven
2. Coffee Pot
3. Barbecue
4. Blender
5. Small Crock Pot
6. Induction hot plate, along with induction cookware.

I purchased small versions of these items, and I use them on every trip, especially the coffee pot.

well GL and keep a notepad handy to jot down other ideas that you come across.

just as you go through a day look at what your using and make a list of items for the household stuff. as for the trailer stuff as you do the PDI / training you'll know what is the minimums that you will need.

oh a lighter to light the oven. my dealer gave me one during our walk through as part of my new owner package.

Dishes, pots and pans can come from good will or target or Wal-Mart. I could probably do a great commercial for Wal-Mart off all the crap I bought to stock the trailer from there.

To help protect the dog you can get step covers if you know the measurements of your outside steps. We have bern talking about doing this ourselves.

I had to check and make sure the tape measure was in the truck this morning so I can measure the step on Thursday.

Thank you for the information. We car/truck travel a lot already so we have a backpack that is dedicated to our fury babies for the bowls, bags, food and treats. My wife usually portions out the food so it easier to dispense. Seat belts for everyone on our watch.
One thing that my wife was concerned about was the steps leading to the TT door. She read a post about a dog that got its toe claw stuck in the step and damaged the foot. So I will have to place something there for her comfort and mine too.

Yes, to the step covering for the dogs.

Also, tripawds have trouble negotiating steps. Usually, if they are a back leg amputee- they have trouble going up. If they are a front leg amputee, they have trouble going down. Be prepared to help the pup (up or down).
