I used to make a camping list too, but found out it didn't help after I removed the things we didn't use on the last trip and upgraded some of the others. I would look at all I had taken out and pick out the ones I might need and put them back in. Guess that I am too much of a pack rat if there is a open space I will find something else to take.

Our camp list resides on the computer desk top where it is printed and
used before each trip.
Not all items are brought on all trips.
It depends on the weather, where we're going and how long the trip.

Dishes, cookware, tools, even hiking shoes, packs and a few other items stay
in the trailer year round.

Once the trailer is packed at the beginning of the year, the only thing that comes out are dirty clothes and the time expiring perishable food. DW washes the clothes the same day or the next day and puts them back in the camper. If we decide to go camping, by the time I get hooked up, DW has the perishable food we're taking back in the camper, slides retracted and dog cage in the truck, dog in cage and off we go in less than 1 hr.

X2!! SO nice to be able to come home, grab the laundry, clean out the fridge and be done with it! Rather than the 3 hours or longer it took to unpack the truck, clean everything up, put everything away, etc. when we tent camped. I'm lovin' it!!!

After many years of camping, both in a tent with a boat and now in a trailer
we discovered we need our pack list.

I know some don't use one but here's a true scenario.
It's late afternoon, you have the charcoal nice and hot and a steak
almost ready to put on your plate. Opps- honey I just realized we forgot
the A-1. ARGH!!!
Or it's hot dogs and no ketchup. It happened to us enough that we made
the list and now it's pretty rare for us to need something. Yeah, we don't
mind going to the store on occasion when we're on the road. Sometimes
it's fun to see different grocery stores across the country.
It sucks to get up in the morning and realize you forgot the coffee or
something.

We use our list every time.
YMMV.

It's just like setting up a new house or a new apartment; you'll get everything in place and then as you use things, you'll figure out that it really is more convenient to have it over here, or over there, etc. There is really no steadfast rule, procedure or organizational chart. You do what works best for you and your lifestyle and everything will work out great. And just like spring cleaning your house, remove the items you don't use for an entire season so they don't take up useful space. Above all....happy camping!!
