What do we need?

Hi Everyone,
Mike and I are new to RVing, this is or first coach of any kind. I have been purchasing items for the coach little by little (linens, kitchen supplies, toolbox w/tools, etc). Our Aspire will be done the end of July, and I hope we have most of what we may need. So, if you all could help us just a little by letting us know what we may need (remember we are new to this, and have to start from scratch). I'm sure there are many items we wouldn't think of. Thank you for any suggestions.

X2 on the Roadside Assistance (Good Sam/FMCA/etc.)

Have patience, with each other and with the coach.... Have a sense of adventure, and don't be in a hurry to go anywhere.

Pretty much what you use in the S & B, but think SIMPLE!! We aren't fulltimers, but go out for 2 months at a time. We don't take a lot of anything...4 towels, for example. We keep things washed and don't have company, so no need to take a lot of towels, etc. We eat simply, so no need for a lot of pots/pans or fancy kitchen items. And, there's always a WalMart nearby to pick up whatever you didn't think of.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Try "driveway camping" or spend a couple of nights in a local campground. Do all the things you'd normally do...cook, clean, whatever. You'll quickly figure out what you forgot. Make a list of those small things you take for granted... pencils, scissors, can opener, etc. You'll figure it out in no time.

Coach-Net is considered by many to be the premium (but not that expensive) road side service. I'd also recommend that you carry a good spare tire if you're going to be out in the hinterlands.

Also, it's appropriate to carry fluids, like oil, ATF, anti-freeze, etc. Along with that, a few tools are necessary. Ratchet set, electric drill, tapes, lubricants for squeaky doors, etc.

Thank you, there were a lot of things we didn't think of some we just didn't know. We are going to do the "driveway camping" before we go anywhere, great idea! Its getting hard waiting now we are so excited, we are like kids waiting for Christmas. Can't wait to join you all!
