Preparing for your next big RV camping trip is much easier if you have a comprehensive packing list. While your favorite activities will dictate what extra equipment you pack, the same basic supplies are required for all RV trips. Use this handy packing list to ensure you don’t forget anything important.
It’s hard to enjoy your favorite campfire meals if you forget to pack a grilling grate or a frying pan for your RV kitchen.
- Pots, pans, and other utensils
- Disposable plates, bowls, and biodegradable cutlery to save on cleanup
- Food supplies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
- Paper towels, soap, and sponges for cleaning spills
- Coolers and ice if your food supplies won’t all fit into your RV fridge
- Skewers and roasting forks for the fire
- Aluminum foil
Setting Up and Securing the RV
- Level and leveling blocks
- Waste hoses
- Fresh water hoses
- Tire pressure gauge
- Duct tape
- Folding shovel
- Metal hammer and a soft rubber mallet
- Privacy screens for the windshield and windows
- Chemicals for the toilet and waste system
- Power cord for connecting to the hookups
- Tire pump (Battery or hand operated)
Most campgrounds require you to leave your site in the same condition as you found it. Even if you arrive to a few scatted cans and bottles, you should clean up properly before you pack up and pull out.
- Pre-moistened wipes for cleaning counters and spills
- Trash bags
- Paper bags for food trash that can be burnt in the fire
- Plastic tubs for washing and rinsing dishes if you skip the disposable options
- Rags and shop towels to soak up spills
- Broom and dust pan
- Small folding rake for clearing out the campsite
Dealing With Emergencies
An unexpected challenge could arrive at any point after you leave your driveway. Keep the number of our RV roadside service handy to get help if you become stranded or stuck on the way. These tools will help you manage small issues that pop up around the campground.
- Jumper cables – it’s very easy to accidentally drain your batteries
- Manual leveling blocks
- Fire extinguisher
- Extra batteries and candles
- Fully stocked first aid kit
- Emergency phone numbers, including the number for our road side assistance
- Extra medications, both prescription and over the counter
- Snake bite kit
Your camping trips are sure to be calming and fun if you bring everything you need. The space in most RVs is fairly limited, so leave unnecessary extras and home and focus on the beauty of nature rather than bringing along extra televisions or computers.
