Thanks gents. Pretty much packed everything that you guys said to.

I went shopping at dollar general, and pretty much have it set up so that we toss in clothes and food and go.

Gracias.

Love our camper - pretty similar to yours.

There is no way to provide a full list really. Just go camping the first time and start making a list in your phone of everything you need to get and pick it up before the next trip. As long as you've got a water hose, dump hose, electric cord, chocks for the wheels, levelers and a crank for the jacks, basic tools, a spare pack of fuses, and enough kitchen utensils and other stuff inside to get by, then you'll be fine first time out.

I'll try to add a list of everything I can think of, but this certainly isn't everything:

water pressure regulator
outside mat
inside rug
tow mirror extensions
toilet packets (little tabs to keep it from smelling)
water hose
dump hose
electric cord
extra hose if your unit has a black tank flush
hitch with weight distribution and sway control
drill bit for raising/lowering jacks (assuming yours aren't electric)
fuses
basic tool kit
broom & dust pan
small vacuum
shelf paper so stuff doesn't slide around
multi-compartment plastic bin with handle to put your shower stuff in when you're traveling
silverware
pots/pans/misc utensils
cups
lighter
lighter fluid
paper towel holder
kitchen towels
extra towels/rags for bathroom
soap for bathroom & kitchen sink
sheet set for master bed
exhaust fan padded inserts for insulation
sunblock
toothpaste
toothbrushes
bug spray
kitchen dish scrubber
trash can & bags (kitchen & bathroom)


Make sure the lug nuts are torqued right and the tires are at the right pressure and double-check your spare. And I would pack a lug wrench and jack that will work on your trailer since your truck equipment probably won't.

Have a good time man, we love ours!

Take your own fire wood, and Fritos make a very good fire starter.

Also, water pressure regulator.

And 2X6's cut to 4' long. 3-4 that you can use to drive one side of the camper on to level it side to side.

+1 - State parks and camping grounds are picked clean. The wood they sell @ Broken Bow isn't seasoned so it's hard to burn and really smokes a bunch!

Well known/well used camp site first few times. Ask anyone camping there to explain the ins and outs. They will be glad to help.

Gotta be careful with wood. Many parks are not allowing people to bring their own due to wood beetles. They will make you dump it.

And in TX state parks, collection of wood/brush is illegal.

The Duraflame logs are a good option if woods hard to come by. I always bring a few. Also make great fire starters ha ha. Even a noobie can get a great fire using one of those and then adding wood on top.
