X3 on that. I had to pick up a bottle when we were in Disney (Pop Century, not FW).
Generally I would list them this way in order of preference:
1) Ice and Firewood
2) Emergency items (Medicine, bandaids, etc...)
3) RV related items (As listed above, things like hoses, fuses, etc..)
4) Sundries (TP, kleenix, paper plates, disposable silverware, garbage bags etc...)
5) Camping related items (fire tongs, grill, folding chairs, lighters, matches, waterproofing kits, rope, etc...)
6) RV Beautification (decorations, awning lights, etc..)
6) Keep kids busy items (Squirt guns, Frisbee, balls, dollar store junk I can't manage to walk past without the daughter saying "Daddy, daddy, daddy! I want this!")
(Yes those two are tied for 6th place)
7) Convenience foods (Condiments, smore's kits, bread, milk, chips, etc... Watch for expiring food only if you can move it. Things like bread and milk will need a high turnover rate, condiments on the other hand have a longer shelf life)
8) Tourist items (T shirts, post cards, mugs, etc...)
9) More robust grocery selections (again, only if you think you can move them.)
10) Alcohol (only if properly licensed)
The ideal is to start small, but still have enough to keep the space from looking too empty. Then as your camper's request stuff, make a note of it and try to have it on the shelf next time.
