Range in cost to immediately outfit a Super C
 
I 'm getting close to purchasing Super C and would like to get a handle on the cost to immediately outfit the coach. We will be boondocking 60-70% of the time. The coach will come with solar panels/lithium batteries, and a generator. I have most of the tools I need.

The items I need involve towing an F150 legally, cooking equipment or accessories for both outside and inside cooking, water and electrical protection.

I don't need a detailed list just a range like 10K-15K or 15K-20K. I do like to buy quality stuff.

Like anything it's a personal thing so impossible to predict. Up to 4-5k to rig truck for towing but can be done for less. I can't imagine spending 5k for the other stuff but I suppose the sky is the limit if you want it to be.

Your choice...your taste....your wallet as far as cooking equipment

PI EMS Surge Protector.......$400

$100 for good quality potable water hose and adjustable pressure regulator

$4-5K setting up Truck for towing...base plate/tow bar/braking system etc

Easily done for under $10k

Thanks it sounds like if I budget 7K to 9K I should be good.

Absolutely. Depends on how camp ready you want to keep your unit vs how much you want to move back and forth from your house to your RV. Linen, dishes, cooking gear, towels, maintenance consumables, toiletries, tools, phone cords, paper products, cleaning supplies...it goes on.

If it's your first RV, you definitely need all the basics. EMS, air compressor, black/gray tank management, storage management, navigation, first aid, extra fire extinguishers, etc.

I sold my 4th gas Class C in May and have a Super C (Accolade) on order with a delivery hopefully in October. My toad needs are covered but I still have $5k budgeted for outfitting the rig, mostly because we plan to go full-time and are starting with all new stuff. Solar upgrades and other modifications are on the list. I'll also be buying some e-bikes above that $5k budget.

Chapo we too are selling the house and going full time so anything we can repurpose to the rig we will. As far a cooking goes I'm, looking at a portable pellet grill, portable griddle, portable camp stove, and instant pot.

Rig has air supply, tire pressure monitoring system and navigation. The tools I need to buy are torque wrench, large impact driver and large socket set.

Everyone is in agreement that the figure should be plus/minus 10K which is fine.

El Chapo 08-22-2021 09:24 PM

I'd say $10k is what you should plan on. I am with the ebikes and things I'm probably forgetting. I'm excited

This really depends, there are a lot of little things that add up, also do you go with nesting stainless steel Magma brand pots and pans which sell for $250-$300 per set, or a budget set in the $100 range, the same goes for flatware, bedding, towels, small appliances, etc. If you don't mind Wal-Mart grade stuff, you should be able to equip the house side of things for $1,000-$1,500 or so. RV add on stuff like surge guard, hoses, power cords and adapters, canopy tents, BBQ grill, camping chairs, etc. are again all over the place, but safely figure another $1,000 - $1,500 or so depending on your tastes.


As to the F150, assuming it is flat towable, somewhere in the $4,500 - $5,500 is the going ballpark range for equipping a vehicle for flat towing, this includes installing a base plate, braking system, tail light wiring, and a tow bar. Again this is a ballpark as tow bars range from about $500 - $1,200, ...


p.s. my advice though is wait until you need something to buy it, I think all of us have bought things that we find we never use, this might be a pop up canopy, or a propane fire pit, or who knows what else, for us one thing that comes to mind is the Ninja brand bullet style food processor / blender combo unit similar to this one, but with another pitcher or two https://www.amazon.com/Ninja-Process...dp/B004XK4N9C/ in 5 years I think it has been used twice.

After the cost of the Super C the rest will be negligible. Enjoy.
