I second the GPS idea of retired_ranger. It removes the guesswork from finding the correct turn. Indispensable when traveling Canada, some of their roads are not marked well(by what we're used to) and taking a wrong turn is easy. Perhaps a set of BAL wheel chocks to prevent the RV from moving slightly while parked, they are the first item my wife mentions when setting up.

What I find that really works me is to have the kids give us Gift Certificates from Camping World & then we go shopping to get what we need & want. You find as you use the trailer, what you need & want.

thank you so much everyone for your wonderful ideas and suggestions. I've made quite the list! Mom and dad have boated for years (34ft Holiday Mansion) so they have lots of portable/camping like gear (plus apparantly dad is so excited for this trip he's been buying up a storm!). The flamingo idea makes me laugh - I can just picture my mothers' face.

thanks again - it's much much appreciated!

A gift card to Sears is always a good choice. You can get everything from tools to blankets and they are every where. Scotty.
