does anyone carry 2x10s to park on in CGs that do not have pads or to use as landing pads for the levelers?

Two Rubbermaid Action Packer small storage boxes. One is fluids........Seafoam, Diesel additive, WD40, White Lithium spray grease, Silicone spray, I think a spray paint can, RainX, and..........I don't even remember what else. Plus rags.

The second is tools that I don't usually need........huge open end wrench for trailer ball (for boat trailer), large socket set, and such.

I throw the wooden 12" square 2X8 blocks in the back, and when I unhook the power cord, it gets thrown in the back there too. It's waterproof, obviously, and easily available for next stop.

Four 8X12X2 for to keep the legs of the auto-level legs or leggos clean , 4 wheel chocks, and the 5er hitch. At times a boat hook to reach things in the bed or in the pass-thru. The hitch has a cover but the bed is open.

Thanks for all the responses. Getting some good ideas and I think I may switch out some of the things I keep in the trailer and move them to the truck.

My windjammer does not have a lot of storage so I plan to keep the 2x10s in the truck bed.

I carry the usual spare tires/jack/propane tank.
The best thing is my 26 gallon fresh water tank with a good 12 volt pump that hooks up to the battery in the front of the TT with a simple plug.
.Works the best!

I have two pickups, a Ford and a Chevy. The Ford has nothing in it, the Chevy has some firewood, chocks, and 2X6's for the 5'er landing legs. The 5'er is at the dealer for warranty work and the bed will be empty when I the trailer back.

Must important thing in our truck bed is a really cool and long hook. It extends so we can reach all that stuff that gets pushed up front out of reach. We gotut this dandy hook and pole at cabella's.

I mentioned a boat hook also. Not only for reaching in the truck bed but also the pasthru in the 5er. Under the backseat of the truck is a folding step stool from CW which I need for the lock on the hitch as well.

What's in your bed?

I carry firewood, stacked in the back. It does not move. In front by tailgate I have 3 portable tool boxes (regular tools, emergency roadside items, ratchet set). All held in place by bungie cords. I also have a tonneau cover.

In the bed of my truck it is lined with LINE-X Bed liner; then the hitch and one portable air tank for the TRAIL-AIR king pin air bag. That's it I believe in the "KISS" method for my truck bed when I am pulling my 5er. I also do not need the extra weight of unnecessary items in the truck bed..

I just ordered 3 of these:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
One for each truck, and one for basement of fifth wheel.

I also have a folding step stool I got on big sale at Harbor Freight. Heck, I can't even add DEF fluid without it! I can get in the bed (barely), cause there are built in steps in the bumper. But DW can't, so the stool is handy for a BOT (Big Ole Truck).

I have a tool chest, just like the one in Ford Idaho's picture. The chest is mounted to a piece of 3/4" plywood. I have 2 Solaris bicycle clamps attached to the plywood that the front forks of our bicycles attach to. Trac Rac ladder racks are mounted on the bed rails to hold our kayaks. It still leaves quite a bit of room in the bed if needed.

When we bought the truck the previous owner had installed a Line-X coating and a BakFlip cover. We liked both but wanted a way to carry our kayaks too. We couldn't find a stake pocket rack we liked for the price, so we built one.



When we're camping the following usually goes in the bed:
  • BBQ in bin
  • Propane tank for BBQ and stove
  • Portable campfire and propane tank (optional)
  • Chairs
  • Step stool
  • Stabilizer blocks
  • Tool box
  • Drill (for WD jacks and stabilizers)
  • Plastic wheel chocks
  • Tongue jack blocks
