I found the perfect place to store our "fixins". There's a really wide drawer under the air bed sofa. I use a few sofa throws to wrap the bottles in, and if I run out of room there I use the drawers under the bed, wrapping the bottles with bath towels.

All these beer drinkers! SMH....we have a separate fridge in the garage here at home, just for sodas, etc. There's a six pack of Bud Lite that's been in there for over a year.

Vintage beer!

That's a good idea, but one of our sofas keeps extra diapers and baby changing stuff and the other has extra bedding for when we fill the camper up!

We don't carry a lot. A bottle of rum (autocorrected to "fun" by my phone- so true!), 6-12 beers and then 6 or so of my wife's fruity wine coolers.

Wifey likes wine. I prefer X2 on the Yuengling suds. I'll bring a 12 pack before we leave and re-stock when I get low. We love NH State liquor stores since they are CHEAP with no taxes. I'll usually bring a handle of JD too, chill N swill a glass on the rocks early evening waiting for the coals to get hot. Cheers!

Usually, we take our beverages with us. Like others have stated, why run out and pay the tourist prices? My local purveyor of fine spirits and brewed beverages has some great prices.
However, here in the great State of Maryland, we can no longer indulge in adult beverages at state CG's, UNLESS you are in a motorhome. So, we've been going above the Mason-Dixon line to PA CG's or across the Potomac River to Wild & Wonderful West Virginia CG's.

Have you ever tried "Gentleman Jack"? If you try that you'll never be happy with *just* JD again.

It's dangerous though, smoooooth stuff! Way too easy to drink.

We use the cabinets over the top of our sofa for puppy pads (Fred's totally house trained but we put those down if we're gonna be out for a while.) And sofa throws and blankets are stored there, as well as a couple of lanterns.

We have so many of those overhead cabinets there's no way we'll ever use 'em all.

The ones over the bed? Empty.

The ones over the dresser in the bedroom? Empty.

The ones over the recliners? Empty.

The ones over the entertainment center? Empty.

PA state parks prohibit alcohol. They don't even have the provision that you can drink it inside of a motorhome that I know of.
