Quick question

Going to gather a few tools to keep with us when traveling. Are most the the fittings SAE or metric?

I find these to be the most prevalent.

Then a simple Philips screw driver or two, one and one short.

Get a 18 volt cordless drill/driver (Harbor Freight) and a nut driver set.

One of these will be handy.

6-8-12 inch Crescent wrenches.

One like this, get it where ever you shop for a hands one look, I dislike buying things like that sight unseen.

Pickup some spare batteries while you are there.

As far as the "coach" , you'll find that almost all the "fittings" are screws, and if any small nuts, are usually sae.
Take a look around your interior and you will find almost everything is attached with screws, usually, but not always #2 square drive. Most others are phillips head. Any self tapping hex head screws are usually 1/4, 5/16 , 3/8 inch drive, which can be taken off by a nut driver.
The appliances are usually just held in place with screws.
I carry an assortment of wrenches, sockets, ect, for the larger stuff on the chassies or cab (ours is a class c) and most of the Ford based fasteners are metric.
My most used hand tools dealing with the interior are a small power screwdriver, a good set of regular screw drivers, and several #2 square bits.
Very few "nuts n bolts" used on the interior. Several I have found, like ones holding couch to floor, slideout hardware, ect, are sae.
