RV years have to be strategic when they plan their packing checklist for trip. They struggle to carry the items they may need while reducing weight and space in the RV. You can predict everything that will happen but you can be prepared with the basics. We list a few things we’ve seen come in handy over the years.
Fixatives – you’ll need a source to repair things that have broken. Have some duct tape, electrical tape, fast acting glue, and silicone on hand.
Ties – pack some zip ties, bungee cords, fine gauge wire, bread ties, rope, and strapping. You’ll be surprised at how often these will come in handy.
Slicing and dicing – for sharp tools it’s helpful if you have a pocket knife, and a hatchet.
Lighting – it’s most useful if you have a flexible necked lighting source or lantern. These will help you see into small spaces or cross the campground at night.
Hand tools – bring the usual screwdrivers pliers, needle nose pliers, wire strippers, bottle openers, file, and sandpaper.
Toolbox – choose a toolbox that is light and has a small profile. As small as possible given the volume of tools it must contain. Toolboxes can be quite heavy on their own even before you fill them in that just adds weight to your RV.
We like for your camping to be worry free with no repairs needed but that doesn’t always happen so being prepared with the simple things can save you some frustration. We’re looking forward to seeing you around park and hope you come back many times in the years to come.
