I've got a brand new , electric pressure cooker, only 12,000 miles on it.
The " just in case " stuff , far out weighs the actually required. Just saying.

If , I start the argument about the DW's " stuff" she gets on my case about my tools.

I think a new / newer 45' tag axle coach will solve most storage and weight problems.

After 4, 5ers, I knew that CCC , was big when looking at " A "s, so went with the DS's 5,000, ( actual 3,670 lbs. with factory options ) and on the scales , I only have 900 lbs. cushion with full fuel and fresh tanks.
Takes me three days to load for our winter get away.

What I did

I had a similar situation with the wife when she took her first motorcycle trip with me.i have a 2005 goldwing and pull a kuik camp tent trailor. I already had what we needed loaded I.E. Rain gear,bedding,pillows,2 chairs,back packers camp stove. You get the idea stuff you really need,and I told her you have room for one bag! She comes out with three bags. I tell her only one can go, and she tells me she needs all three! So I proceed to unload the trailor of the pillows and chairs and so on and she asks me WHAT ARE YOU DOING? So I told her something's got to give we only have so much room and we can only haul so much weight and you never never start a trip with a tight pack. You only add stuff along the way and stuff never goes back in as small as it came out. So she saw the light!
Only to latter add extra luggage rack so she could bring a second bag the next time.LOL

I am the one in the MH that has this issue. But I am curbing my thinking and thinning out the items. The MH is not where will live everyday....it is where we travel in comfort. I am making room for other forms of comfort. BUT IT IS HARD!

Wow, I'm going to go in and give my wife a kiss and a thank you; maybe even some flowers. When we started outfitting our first MH she fully understood the concept of weight and space. It is probably why even though we full time we still have empty interior cabinets and space in the basement.

Same here.... I have what is needed and some what if's but I am also an organization freak. I don't have any baking equipment...plenty of places to buy goodies that we shouldn't be eating! My only bad vice is shoes...the rule is a new pair enters so an older pair has to exit.

You still have both lids for all those Tupperware bowls, right?


We go through bowls and lids every so often, throw away anything that doesn't have a mate.

Actually yes... I have ONE full set of tupperware that nest inside of each other. It's part of being OCD.
