Best advice I received when I was new to RVing was to pull into an RV friendly Walmart. Stay overnight and when you need something, go inside the Walmart and buy it. Other RV'ers can give you a laundry list of things they bought but it was because they came across a situation where they wanted/needed that item.

Another good idea is to park in your driveway and spend the night. When you go into the house to get something you write it down on your list of things you need.

Have fun!!

Outfittng a new TT is like outfitting any vacation home.

You need items to prepare/cook meals
You need items to clean up after said meals
You need bed linens and towels for bathing

Just sit down and think about what you use in your house
on a daily basis and that should give you a starting point.

As for the TT itself:
(1) 25 ft white water hose
(2) pressure regulator for said hose
(3) leveling blocks either wood or plastic
(4)# a good addition would be a power surge protector for
the 30 amp power cord where plugged into the power post.

#I never had one of these until I bought my new currant TT.

My in-laws bought a small MH after tenting their entire lives. It was funny watching them at first as they could not get out of the "packing for tenting" mindset. We kept telling them "you have a small house on wheels" set it up to live in, along with extra linens and toiletries in the cupboards. It took them a summer, but they got the hang of it.

Spending the night in the driveway and/or Walmart are both good ideas. My tendency is to overthink things, and try to anticipate every detail - wrong!

A lot depends on what you like to do, and how you normally live. The advice above is good. Pack like you were going on a short vacation, then add things as you find you need them. You only have limited storage space, and if it gets jammed full of stuff you seldom use, it becomes a bother to move all the stuff to get to what you really need.
