Camping Issues

Hi All,

My Family & I decided to go for a camping trip after long school days. My kids were so excited to go camping. I told them we will be going to Awenda National Park so we can plan a little hike in the forest and go for a swim in the lake, which will be so much fun. They were so excited about it, my wife suggests why don't we rent an RV for the trip, I was so excited and ring up a couple of agency and got one. One thing My wife and I was worried about while taking kids for camping for the first time, what all are the things we should be taking care? We are going with an RV for the first time as well so what are the necessary RV camping supplies we should be having? I did search for basic RV camping supplies but I do like to know expert opinion and your valuable feedback. Please do advice us.

You will need the usual camping supplies...will you be cooking using the microwave or stove top? Fill up with water...take along drinking water. It is similar to camping using a tent, just a lot more comfortable..with your own bathroom and shower! Enjoy!

Hopefully, your rental agency will provide a suggested list of what you might need. They should supply everything needed to "use" the motorhome.

Power Cable
Cable TV Cable
Awning Tool to pull out awning with (if your awning is not electric)
Water Hose
Dump Hose (Stinky Slinky)
Tool to lower leveling jacks (if leveling jacks are not electric)
Pots and Pans (if not, you'll need to bring some)

What they might not include is what YOU want to have for everyday living.
Think about where you are going and what you will be doing.

For what you do everyday anyway...

Clothes (prepare for a variety of reasonable weather assumptions)
Food
Cleaning supplies
Toilet Paper
Towels for showering
Toiletries
Games
Etc.

KIS. Keep It Simple.

Just think of the camper as a high and dry place to sleep. Add water if want a bathroom (you should already have a shower bag). You were already going to eat anyway. Have fun.

For inside the RV - supplies are no different that being at home.


For outside the RV -
Mosquito spray (possibly).
Cards/games

Chairs for around the camp/fire.
Lighter/matches and newspaper/lighter fluid to start said camp fire.
Wood to be a camp fire.
Skewers to roast the marshmallows
Marshmallows.
Keebler fudge stripes cookies to turn the ordinary roasted marshmallows into smores.


Mmmmm. Smores.

If you're not sure about something after you get to the CG, don't be afraid to ask for help. Most experienced RV owners are more then willing to help you learn but most won't butt in uninvited.

We were at Grand Canyon Trailer Village for a week. About 90% of the RV's there are rentals and you wouldn't believe the things I saw going on.
