Coleman stove 2 burner type, a great grill, two most popular are the Coleman Roadtrip (the one with the cast iron grill plates) or the Weber Q series like the 120, 200 etc. depending on size. Good comfortable bag chairs, they take up the least amount of storage space and make sure you have at least two more than what you'll need for who you travel with (guests to your campsite). A good cooler with something to cover it from the sun or heat. Old cookware like two fry pans, cast iron are great to use over an open fire and a couple of old pots with lids. Extra long cooking tongs. At least one extra fresh water portable container. Wal-Mart sells a nice 7 gallon for $12. I carry about 120ft. of fresh water hose in varying lengths. A box of latex gloves for dumping your waste tanks, don't use work gloves. Harbour Freight for about $5. Extra blankets besides what you will use. Clothing that you can leave in the camper. You'll know its always there, less to load each outing. Several size flash lights for walks around the campground at night and late walks to the shower house. A Coleman propane lantern, I just threw out a dual 6 volt battery model, the batteries cost more than the lantern! A couple long lighters to start your campfire. Keep a bag of old newspaper always on hand in the rig to use as fire starter. Tool kit with sockets, hammer, several types of pliers, couple of different screw drivers and maybe a rechargeable drill. Wood blocks or 12x12 appx. plywood to put under your stabilizer jacks. And, my favorite new addition this camping season is a Emerson Ice Maker. Makes 26-30 pounds of ice a day. No more daily trips to the camp store buying bags of ice to keep the beer cold in the before mentioned covered good cooler!
Good Luck, enjoy the lifestyle and many happy and fun filled camping adventures!

One of the things that we always make sure we have is a laundry basket. You may have one of these already anyway, but we always make sure we keep a spare to carry out the food and fixins for the BBQ. It's a lot easier to carry out the meat, buns, and condiments out in one trip in the basket than it is to make several trips to take it all out and put it away.

We just dump the one in the stick house out and use it. No need to buy/carry another one.

One of the first things I bought that I thought were necessary was a Progressive Industries surge protector and a water pressure regulator.

You'd want to ensure your rig will be up to the task cuz if you don't and something breaks, it would be a miserable camping trip.

Last time my Bible wouldn't start, I took it to church for a jump.

Agreed. And a hatchet. I even have a 2' shovel. There have been times it was easier to move a half inch of dirt or gravel from one side to level the camper. And to extinguish the fire.
