Things Needed for new Class C

Just picked up a new Forester 2431S 25 ft class C. It only came with a long 30 amp electric cable. Any suggestions on what else we will need for our first camping trip starting around January 1st?

Wow you are asking for a lot (long list)!

Sewer hoses - you will want to drain the holding tanks (grey water and black water)

Fresh water hose to fill the "fresh water holding tank". Depending where you are camped a 15' hose will do but I have needed up to 200' before.

Cat 6 cable to hook up to campground cable if available.

That will get you off to a good start. You will find a lot of other items that you will need and some you will just want. I will let the many other members of the forum fill you in.

toilet paper, I use the same stuff for the house, no issues.
a broom and dust pan, the amount of dirt the camper collects is astonishing.
s'mores fixens, it's not camping without them.
beer, same as above.
water pressure regulator for hooking up to city water.

Thanks. Will go to Walmart to see what we think look at what we can find that looks necessary.

All the above and if you don't have leveling jacks some type of RV leveling blocks, or just a few 12" or 16" long pieces of 2x6 to drive up on? And of coarse as most have mentioned your favorite beverage! and maybe some BACON!

Congratulations on your new rig. I have the larger sister, a 2801qs, on order. The fun now is buying all new stuff to put in it.

One of the best startup mods I did was install a screen door bar. See Screen Door Cross Bar - Black Handle - Camco 42183 - Screen Doors - Camping World
