Bring less than you think you need and it will be more than you need. The next trip will be lighter also. We carry too much junk we never use. Just the way we are I guess.

Get a big and I mean BIG truck ,then you will not care what anything weighs and you will have room for anything including a car ,in fact I have seen a F150 loaded on top of a RV hauler (class 8).
The trailer will be asked to do less because the truck will just say "what thats all?" as you pile on stuff.
Skip the whole LGT step.

I have been using Roughneck Containers, same size cover and different height and mark then. They slide easily on the carpet in my storage bay. But I have a 34in tall storage on my drop frame unit.

I use clear storage containers to help me see what is inside. The laminated list is a good idea to help things go back from whence they came.
I try to pack them logically with electric items together and plumbing items in another contain. But don't mix fresh water and sewer items!

Since we live in New England and our Anthem goes into storage each Winter, I take the opportunity to "hoe" out in the Fall and reload each Spring. Anything that did not get used that season, does not go back in. I actually now have a few cabinets that are practically empty and am using less storage (clear) containers in the basement.

We've been Fulltiming for 5 yrs now. I use clear totes, different sizes but of the same brand so they stake will. I also use a couple of 3 drawer bins to help with the misc stuff. My bay is 34" so I can get a lot of items there. I also clean out the bay at least once a year as you will figure out what you thought you needed you really don't.

We also use the vacuum bags to store off season clothes under the bed. We each carry a small carry on suitcase for those emergency's we might have to fly off to and that is where we pack with the off season cloths.

We have re arranged our storage area multiple times and things do change. Good luck
