This is the only tool most millenials carry these days

Here's an old list. It might have something that didn't get listed above... like a blacksmith's anvil and a scrap paper baler. Just kidding, of course... but one time on here a guy said he always carried 1000 lbs. of tools IN HIS TRUCK ALONE. I certainly don't.

Yeah, but I'll bet it's not the ONLY one you carry!

Don't get me wrong, I take my fair share of tools, some of which I've actually used while we camp. However, after emptying our unit this last fall for some warranty work, I realized we take way too much crap we never use with us too! I utter a phrase to my wife almost every time we leave for someplace and we go over the "List" in our head to see if we forgot anything. "We're not going to Bosnia".....

I got a box of tools like this (not this one, but something like it) free for a work anniversary. Added a few things I thought it was missing and threw it in the TT.



This one goes for about $200:

How true, last year on our way to Sturgis we lost our waterpump in the TV at 7pm in small town Nebraska, we unloaded my wifes Harley and she rode an hour back to Omaha to the closest parts store that was still open while I pulled the waterpump in a church parking lot. she returned, i reinstalled and off we went on our merry way.
I even carry a spare serpentine belt and belt tool for the TV.

C'mon folks, do we really need anything else? If it moves and it's not supposed to...duct tape. If it doesn't move and it is supposed to...well, you get the idea.

tools

I always throw my floor jack in the bed of my truck. It does not take up that much room and if I get a flat it is a lot easier to use than the bottle or car jacks.
