I have a bucket-like tool bag with pockets all around the outside and open in the center. Screwdrivers, pliers, crescent wrenches, etc go in the pockets. Small 3/8 and 1/4 drive sockets sets, multimeter, etc. go in the center. Easy to carry to the point of work and easy to grab the needed tool.

I also carry tools in the Jeep for trail repairs. Additionally to screw drivers, pliers and such Here are also the 1/2 drive socket set, impact wrench, BFH, etc. The heavier duty stuff.

You sound like me! I have a box in my truck that fits under the back seat I could almost overhaul the engine with.

My it's idea was a collection of small tool boxes and tool bags tucked here and there but I couldn't settle on what went where. I has a small 4 drawer top box from Home Depot and opted to bolt into the bin relight next to the door. I can open the top and the drawers to get what I need. I know it isn't going to be bouncing around. Power tools will all be in an adjacent smaller compartment . I will probably need to give some things up when I finally get weighed.

This thread is timely for me. I had a 6x10 trailer mainly to house my tool chest and scooter. Since it was stolen a week ago, I'm trying to figure out what tools I really need and how to store them in my new trailer.

I have never really had a problem with what tools to bring or how to store them because we are usually pulling a race trailer with enough tools and parts to build a couple motorcycles from the ground up including a large compressor and spare generator. As of late we have been doing more actual camping and vacationing so the need to bring a smaller solid set of tools with us that would fit in the coach became necessary . I found a complete set of tools that came is sort of a hard shell plastic brief case. It has 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 ratchets , sockets wrenches screwdrivers, everything. It is made by channel lock and has held up to many years of wrenching at the race track. I have seen similar sets at SAMs club and Costco but marketed under the Crescent brand. It is light and easy to store and all the tools have a snap fit into the case to keep them organized. You can bring it to your work area, open it up and everything is handy and organized. It is a great start to the necessities of life on the road. I find the most useful things in a motorhome are my electrical kit. Wirestrippers, connectors, electrical tape, a vom meter and most useful of a ll a 12v test light.

For the tools that stay in my MH during my camping season, I use some gutted out plastic toner boxes that are about 12x8x4".
