Hi Wayne. Welcome to the forums.

You are essentially setting up a second home on wheels so you will want some items to be stored permanently so you won't have to load them each time. Follow the checklists Mike posted and determine what you want to keep on board permanently, and what you should load before each trip.

We have a fully stocked kitchen as far as utensils, pots and pans go. They were an old set we had. If you don't have spare items, check second hand stores or flea markets or yard sales. You can probably pick up those things there.

Just remember, don't overload the trailer. Try to determine what you really think you will use. If you have something you think you may or may not use, put that on the load for the trip list, not the permanent list. Over time it is amazing what you find stored in these things. Particularly when you are trading models.

If you plan to buy from Camping World join the Presidents Club first.

Then just bring your Credit Card and start walking each row and fill up your basket.

Toilet Paper
Black water tank cleaner and oder eater.
Tire Chokes and wood to level tires
Oh a 6" or 8" bubble level at the 98 cents store also pickup paper plates, utensils, plastic cups, coffer mugs, etc. Oh look for BBQ grill utensils.
That's just a few things.

All the rest is optional

Boy how true! When we emptied out our old MH and set up the Georgetown we were amazed at all the crap (and weight) we had been carting around the nation as we travelled. Canned goods are the worst. You find a good sale and say "that would be good to have in the RV" We had tons of canned stuff and that is HEAVY. My advice, stay away from canned goods if you can.

When shopping for plates, cups, cookware, try and find light weight stuff. Don't load up on a bunch of cast iron skillets. We actually found square plates and bowls at either Fred Meyer or Target that fit in a square cupboard much better than round does.

It's a learning process and you will figure it out over time. One thing we bought first hand was an old fashioned stove top coffee percolator. Cabelas has some nice stainless ones in differing sizes.

Welcome to the forum, those lists above are nice. depending on where you camp, we use our blue tote about every trip. also nice to have a way to get more water into the fw tank. also consider getting your credit card limits increased! just kidding. we purge our trailer every year when we winterize, enjoy the new trailer
