Things to take for a summer-long trip?

We are newbies and will be heading out in a few weeks for our first extended trip (June - Oct). We could use some advice on what to take with us other than clothes, food, kitchen items, grill, lounge chairs, and a few tools. Are there things for extended trip that we should consider that I've not mentioned? We're going in a 40 ft., 2010, Tiiffin Phaeton pulling a toad.

Thanks.

Sounds like you have it covered. Part of the fun is just going... If you really need something, pick it up on the way. I have found that we usually pack way too much 'stuff' anyway!

That is a biggie. Most of us older folks take meds. Getting refills on the road can be tough if you don't plan ahead. We use a nationwide pharmacy chain, which then allows us to obtain refills nearly anywhere in the U.S.A., as they can transfer the script from store to store.

Anything to do with your hobbies. Birding, hunting, hiking, fishing, ball games, smores, sun screen, beach towels, games for shut in days(it's got to happen).
Have fun and don't take anything to seriously.

Glad to have you here with us. For a new RV the idea of "camping" in your yard with it, and not going inside the house will usually add on to your list of things that you will need. Other then that just have fun, and Happy Trails!!

If you are traveling with a pet, you might need to take their vaccination papers just in case.

Sounds like you have 'most; of the bases covered. Being that we boondock a lot, our tool selection is extensive, plus we have extra coolant, engine oil, wind shield washer fluid, extra shop paper towels and 'stuff' for our labs. We also have a good supply of paper plates in case we are in places that we might run low on water.
