It is a good thing to have a dining shelter even if you have a trailer instead of a tent. I cannot go camping without it. Us too have camped with tents for years and I still have 2 tents that I dont want to sell just in case! I cook a lot inside the shelter specially when it rains. Just replaced this dining shelter with a bigger one for this season. Bought a Eureka 12 foot with closed sides .

LOL-Just remember you are basically setting up house. Sheets, blankets, towels, a couple pots and pans, silverware, since you're on a seasonal site a gas grill would is nice maybe some outside lights, silverware, a few real plates, coffee pot, coffee cups, , a rubber backed rug for the entrance, cooking utensils, pot hoders, outside chairs, toilet paper for RV's, maybe a small battery operated clock for the bedroom - I use small plastic baskets to hold a lot of items-like spices ,tolietries etc so they don't fall over in the cabinents. Just get some basics and add them as you find a need. Trick is to only have to bring food and clothes on trips.

If you deploy the awning be sure to drop one corner slightly lower than the other for drainage and if it starts getting very windy retract it. Makes a great big wind sail.
