Like the others, the maintenance and use of a checklist is just too much trouble for a simple A-frame. The first 4 trips, at the end of a trip we reviewed what we wanted, but didn't have, and stuff we did not use. The latter was a longer list, and was removed from the camper.
Our goal is to keep everything ready to go. The A122 stores in our garage (I can even set it up inside the garage in the new house). We keep it stocked and stored with everything but food, drink, water, normal clothing, the EZ-up, folding chairs, and the carpet for the entrance (all those except water go in the minivan TV).
We can choose to go on a trip the night before and leave the next morning with less than an hour's effort. This includes charging the batteries, checking the air pressure in camper and TV tires, loading TV, adding water (if necessary), and hooking up.
I've pulled a couple of SPUTs by not using a checklist - luckily none have resulted in damage.
- forgot to pull chocks on departure from campground. Resulted in partially collapsed plastic chock.
- forgot to raise stabilizers on departure from campground. Resulted in slight bend on one stab that I was able to straighten.
- forgot to change battery in smoke detector annually. Resulted in cutting wires to CO/propane detector in effort to silence alarm - completely forgot there was a D-cell powered smoke detector.
keeping camping simple so we'll go more often
