Everything You Need Before Your First Camping Trip.

You don't want to be camping and find you don't have something you need. I've put this list together for others to learn from my mistakes over the last 4 years so they don't find themselves missing something. I'll keep adding things to the list as I think of them or find I need them but if you think something is missing, please let me know. Note that I won't be adding chemicals or general maintenance/cleaning stuff as they can be deferent based on the of construction of your unit. Also, you will undoubtably have some of the items already, just don't forget to pack them! Have fun camping!

Equal-i-zer 10K 4-point Sway Control Hitch 90-00-1000 1,000/10,000 rating

If your camper weighs over 5000 lbs, you are required to have a weight distribution hitch. Don't mess around with your safety, trailer sway is not something to be taken lightly. Consult with your dealer or manufacturer to see what size hitch you need.

    You should mention that this particular model might not be right for everyone, you have to know the weight of your trailer to get the right model

  • melvinas

    Yup, you're right. I should have mentioned that, this one is rated up to 10,000 pounds I believe and was right for my trailer.

Champion 3100-Watt RV Ready Portable Inverter Generator with Wireless Remote Start

This is a sweet generator that you can start remotely from the comfort of your camper on those cold and rainy mornings.

  • marlinj

    Great choice. I have this generator, it's outstanding. We can turn it on remotely to make coffee and it has more than enough power to run the AC in our camper.
