I would recommend a set or two of the plastic Lego leveling blocks. I have 2 sets for my 15' trailer and have considered getting more.

I would also suggest getting a 25' (or longer) extension cord rated for your trailers service (probably 30 amp)

Build a took kit specifically for the camper. Complete with fuses, wrenches, screwdrivers...

This way, when you are at home you don't need to keep poaching tools from the camper to fix things around the house.

A bottle jack or small floor jack rated to lift your camper as there is not a jack that comes with the trailer for flat tires

I was given a couple of cheap 20-30 piece tool sets that live in the camper. Literally the $15 or less "gift ideas" from Sears or something. I try to carry as little as possible to/from the camper in-between trips (knowing I'll forget something along the way)!

I don't see camping chairs and that sort of thing on the list. But, I assume that's in your "personal items" list.

I assume the NeverKink hoses are for your drinking water? Or, do you have a hose dedicated to drinking water for hooking to city water sources or filling your fresh water tank?

Since owning the camper, I've bought an air compressor, but that's not required. I like being able to top-up my tires before a trip.

I also like to carry a couple spares of things - bolts, R-pins, that sort of thing. Many folks carry common fuses that they may need. Some folks carry many more spares (to the point, I don't know how they fit it all in! I'm jealous of their jenga abilities!).

What do you have for leveling the camper side to side? I carry a combination between the Lynx blocks and some 2x10s and a couple of pieces of 1x6s (I might even have a piece or two of 1/2" plywood). Unless you have a leveling system, you need to level the TT using something under the low tire.

I'm looking around in my head of the other stuff in our basement storage... not sure what else is down there!

Have fun!

Okay...thus far I am missing...

- Tool kit with fuses and all the other goodies that go into a tool kit (forgot about this one, so thanks).
- I forgot that I had the Lynx “Stop N Chock” and I have a 10pk of the Lynx Levelers.- I need to add wood blocking


Anything else?

That is quite the list!!

I will probably never get around to having all that stuff!

One thing I did not see however was a 15/30 amp connector (your dealer will probably give you one, as well as a water regulator and probably cheap sewer hose.) And some extension cords. I have found that with my current trailer I can hit the park electric pedestal with the supplied 20ft or so. But with my old one I needed a little more, so have an extra 25ft 30 amp cord. I also carry a 50ft regular extension cord in case I need something outside the camper and a work light.

The neverkink hoses are for drinking water. I have a flushing hose (gray hose) and Lynx Levelers. I now need the following…
- Tool kit with fuses and all the other goodies that go into a tool kit (forgot about this one, so thanks).
- I need to add wood blocking
- 30 amp connector (supplied by dealer)
- 30 amp extension cord
- 50’ extension cord

This list is long

Rick

My take on the extension cord was that I'd buy it if I needed it. I don't camp in remote enough areas that an extension cord wouldn't be more than an hour away. I never needed it on my pop-up and haven't needed one with my fifth wheel. Though, I do now carry dogbone adapters to get me from 50amp to 15amp and I carry 50' of heavy duty extension cord.

Just my way- your results may vary.

Add to the list a nice camp matt (large area rug size)...it will reduce trafficking of mud and dirt into camper. Also, when you take your first steps out in the morning you don't have to set foot onto cold dewy grass. I'm too lazy to constantly be putting on shoes.

Folding directors' chairs with side table and drink holder. Easier than using your lap or ground at the campfire if you're snacking and having something to drink.

A couple more things...

* A water filter for your incoming hose. Cheap at Walmart.
* As Jeep said, a water pressure regulator for your incoming hose. You do not want to blow lines inside the camper
