Essential camping packing list and RV supplies

Packing an RV for a trip can be a bit challenging. What should I bring? What can I leave behind? What kind of items will I need? Also, space is limited. The best way to start is right in your living room with your camping packing list . Lay the items out before packing so you know exactly how much you are bringing. This way, you can eliminate any unnecessary clutter.

Personal camping packing list

Start with personal items, like your clothing: Are you camping somewhere warm, or near the water? Will it be cold? Will you be outside a lot, or hitting the local museums? Your destination plays a big role in what you pack. Be sure to take at least 5 changes of clothing that are suitable for where you are headed. Bring comfortable shoes for sightseeing. If you’re planning something special, bring one nice outfit. Don’t forget about your toiletries, including shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, mouth wash, floss, and sunscreen. Bring books, games, cards, and other items that you enjoy.

Important RV supplies

If you own your own RV, it is a good idea to purchase essential items specifically for your RV, including kitchen items, bedding, tools and other RV supplies that will stay in the RV after the trip. When stocking up your kitchen, remember that space is limited. Take the things you use daily, such as a coffee maker. Include a few pots and pans of varying sizes to fulfill any cooking need. Don’t forget measuring cups, a cutting board, a nice set of knives, can opener, cooking utensils, hot pads, oven mitts, silverware, plates, cups, and bowls. If you can avoid glass, do so. Remember that items can shift when the RV is in motion, so the less delicate, the better. If you do not plan on doing very many dishes while camping, stock up on paper and plastic goods. Don’t forget plastic bags, aluminum foil, Tupperware, and plastic wrap. Get sheets, blankets and pillows to keep in the RV, as well as towels and a table cloth. More vital RV supplies include a tool kit. Be sure to have a wide variety of tools in the RV that can handle any situation. This includes varying sizes of screwdrivers, both Philip and flat head, duct tape, zip ties, hammer, wrenches, a jack, spare tire, spare parts, crowbar, fire extinguisher, bungee cords, battery jumper pack, fuses, wd40, measuring tape, and other such items. It is also important to have maps, spare batteries, GPS, matches, flash lights, an extra cell phone battery, lanterns, a first aid kit, leveling blocks, cb radio, and a sewing kit.

Having a camping packing list makes it easier and faster to pack up the RV. Check things off as you go, and you’ll be ready to go in no time!
