What do you carry in your tow car?

Getting ready to depart on a 2 month summer trip towing a 4 door behind my Class A Jayco Precept. I'm curious to know what others who tow carry in their toad?

I still have storage room in the rig and a fairly empty trunk and back seat in the tow. Don't carry a spare, so right now I just have:

1. Container that I store the tow gear in (cables, etc)
2. A small air compressor
3. Daytrip items like:
-A collapsible cooler
-Extra Water, bowls & leashes for our dogs
-A spare first aid kit
-Camera tripod and binoculars

Besides these and a spare or extra fluids, what else do you carry?

Thank you,

EZ up, sometimes the dolly spare. Anything that gets in the way inside the bus.

Nothing. Why put stuff there if you do not need to?

Bicycles when towing. Dog most often when not towing.

Hi McGarrett50, I carry just my Winegard dish. Like you, I have plenty of storage space so when I am looking for something, I know where not to look.

Golf bag carts, not the bags- they go in one of the mh closets, just the carts.

anything that is bulky but fits ... stuff that is a PITA to get out of a storage compartment. Bikes and recliners are examples.

Considering that everything in there adds weight, we do not load it up. Basic emergency tools & carryall for the tow cables. If it otherwise doesn't fit in the coach I don't need it
