Packing List for Newbie: 5 Day Adventure

My wife and I are picking up a Class B rental (Airstream Interstate) in Atlanta on Nov 1. We will be making overnight stops at campgrounds/RV parks in North Georgia and Tennessee before returning the RV on Nov 5.

Besides our clothes and food, what should be on our packing list? The renter has been vague as to what is included "on board" (i.e., towels, linens, etc). We know there is not much storage space in a Class B.

I'd pin the renter down. Most likely it isn't a standard mattress so no readily available sheets. Then do you want to spend the first half day doing an inventory then raiding the house (or buying, long way home for a Yooper) what you need?

They must have an inventory of what's on board so they know what should be there when it's returned. I'd want that so I could do a 'walk through' when I got it and not lose deposit money for what wasn't there to start. Actually sounds sort of shady to me.

A four day trip? I'd say, "not a lot". I get you don't want to be caught short needing an "essential" but for four days I can't think of too many things you couldn't get by without. For that kind of trip just bring along your own set of queen sheets which may not fit well on an RV queen, but so what. A towel, some toiletries and whatever changes of clothes you think you have to have. After that a phone, a credit card and a drive-by wally world will take care of anything else you need enroute. A package of paper plates and plastic utensils, maybe some snacks and food you heat up in the microwave. Don't overthink this.

The RV was rented through "RVShare.com". All the financial transactions occurred through the website portal and not through an individual. I do have the renter's contact info, and that is where the term "vague" originated -- the person just seems busy and/or not a great communicator. I just sent a message to the renter (regarding "inventory" on board the RV) via the website. Hope to get a solid reply.

This is overkill for a 4-day trip but after you get a list of what's aboard perhaps you can add a few things you deem necessary from this list.

One thing to ask is road service.. even in case of a flat tire. Is that on you or him? Or does he include tire-changing equip and a spare tire?

If I was unsure, I would grab two sleeping bags, your own pillows, two shower towels, two wash rags, one hand towel, one dish towel and a roll or two of paper towels.

On our first trip out many moons ago, a muzzle for the DW would have been a big help.

I agree to get a inventory list. If the owner can 't be bothered I would look elsewhere for a rental.

Prior to owning, we rented several times. Nothing was ever included except basic essentials like a couple rolls of toilet paper and some holding tank treatment chemicals. I would assume there are no linens or kitchen items. Most rental units wouldn't have anything because if something gets lost they'd have to be replaced before they rented it out again. Some may have things available at an additional fee.

Cruise America is a large RV rental agency. Here is what they suggest to pack. Note: Toward the end of the link they offer a 'supply kit' to purchase for $110. https://www.cruiseamerica.com/rv-adv...e-first-time-c

Don't get stressed over what to pack. In the US you're never that far from a WalMart.
