A couple of things not mentioned ... Not sure if they qualify as tools but nice to have when you need them:

Tow strap (been stuck a few times)
22" breaker bar for changing tires
Cheater hose
Plastic tarp
Small shovel

Oh, and a bottle opener for my beer!

Cheater Hose / Water Theif = Some of the state parks around here have water spigots with no thread to attach a hose (when filling your water tank). You can buy one like in the picture or make one from an old hose.

You can never have enough tools sometimes. Last month I went camping, antenna would not rotate, wish I had a ladder so I could find the problem. I do not have a ladder installed. Brain went click, click...oh, I have a former supervisor that lives not far from the campground where I was at. I called him, went and got his ladder, found my problem and took his ladder back. Sometimes it is knowing what is available in the area!
