Outfitting a new class C Motorhome

Hello, New to RVing and have a Winnebago View on order for first quarter delivery. What do I need to outfit a brand new unit? Cooking utensils, tools, etc.

Welcome !!

Lots of good info here

Storage space for kitchen tools and hand tools play a big factor.

Outside chairs, BBQ, kitchen appliances etc. Tools include a good set of hand tools and I carry a battery operated drill w/ bits and screw driver tips. Can't have too many tools.

Agree, can't have too many tools. I've got a garage full. The question what to pack in a class C and be aware of storage space and OCCC. I'd like to go slow and add as necessary and space as space permits. I'm thinking I might want more tools in the beginning and pare back if I can. I figure in a new one there will always things to tighten and adjust.
Any suggestions for light weight cooking utensils, etc.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Congrats on the new rig! Let the adventure begin!

I would just take basic hand tools, and a cordless drill w/bits. You can probably borrow anything else you need from a neighbor or the campground maintenance guy.

Most folks take a small stepladder. I take a 4' stepladder and I find I rarely need anything taller.

I would take two 50' water hoses, one for freshwater and one for general use. I love the Zero G hoses. They collapse flat and can be rolled up on one of the plastic electrical cord reels. They are safe for drinking water and have a 5-year warranty!

I use two 10' sections of sewer hose and only use one of them most of the time. You'll want a clear 45-degree sewer fitting at the RV end so you can see when the water is clear when dumping. This adapter is really nice to have!

I use the blue Camco in-line water filter in the freshwater line to take out the big stuff. We have a high-quality carbon-block filter under the sink with a separate faucet. This filters out all the bad stuff down to 1/2 micron, and removes lead, mercury, etc. We use this for all the water we drink or cook with.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new rig.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

Include a water filter and a water pressure gauge.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

My advice is don't over buy, get the basic essentials, then learn as you go what you need. I bought my coach used, it came with a few accessory items, but not many, a couple of fresh water hoses, a sewer hose, a couple of power cord adapters, some tire covers, a pair a jack stands, a roll up outdoor rug, and a few other things (a few rolls of toilet tissue, black tank treatment, etc), but that is about it. Some of these items I have never used, there are also things that I have bought that I find I rarely or never use as well.
