Inside need basics, coffee pot, garbage can , utensils , pots and pans etc and decide best places
Yes, Axe, it is flat, and does not take up much room- I split the campground firewood-to make the firewood burn easily-the big chunks you buy at the campgrounds will not ignite easily, unless you split them. A little hatchet will just not do the job. I use the charcoal that we cooked the dinner with to start the campfire- then we sit outside in our comfy chairs & people watch with a cup of after dinner tea.
We love to stay at State, Municipal , National Parks-almost all have fire rings and folks will walk by-say hello & sometimes stop to talk. Lots of folks will comment on your rig- many Women say " I wish my husband would get one of these smaller Motorhomes"
No Rug- for us- we have a mat inside the door. Rug storage is an issue, and if the rug is wet, it is a nuisance.
a Little fan, my wife likes it-it doesn't do anything for me.
Propane Mosquito repeller-small green one from Bass Pro- about 3 X 6 inches with a little pad you replace for every use. It WORKS for about every flying bug around.
No Cooler-refrigerator is plenty for us.
No table, folding matching Cabela foot stool doubles for table- the places we stay all have an outside table- we generally eat outside (given nice weather-not too hot-not too wet-not too buggy.
We take 2 good bikes, good bike rack that holds 4 bikes ( that means it is heavy duty)
PS: We are primarily "Travelers"-we love the travel part, we generally stay a day or two at any one location- as opposed to "Campers" that will stay in one place for a week at a time, then move on. We can set up in 15 minutes or less. I will often not even hook up the sewer line-even if it is available-if we stay less than 3 nights. I just dump before we leave- That way- I only have to fool with the sewage once.
You will figure out the pots & pan thing. The cook knows what he/she "has " to have.
