Lynn, you should be able to find some at a quilting shop that carries the Laurie Wishbrun designs called Roughing It which can be seen at the Robert Kaufman website.

Here are a few other popular items that many folks I know with fiberglass trailers all either have or want:

REI Camp Roll top Table - Camping world has them in a bit bigger size as well.

A carrying bag of Level Blocks

A propane Fire Pit - such as Fire Dancer or Campfire in a Can. A must have for those who camp in forest areas where actual wood fires are banned for a better part of the summer due to high forest fire hazard.

A Quad LED Light such as the Coleman one.

A good stocking stuffer is a Water Thief - I carried on of these around for 4 years never needed it - then last year I needed it about 5 times.

Another stocking stuffer is A plug in LED battery monitor.

A voltage Meter.

An "ove-glove", or better yet a pair of "ove-gloves".

Send a message via Yahoo to Lynn Musgrave
Bobbie and Carol ....Thank you both so much for the fabric sights. Now the only problem is to decide what I like most.

In my younger days(before kids...oh & now grand kids) I use to quilt the" ole fashion" way,by hand on a quilt frame hung from the ceilling. Needless to say I have not done that since my mother passed away 15 years ago use to love quilting bees. I do have a daughter that quilts all the time useing her sewing machine.She does beautiful work on anything from lap size all the way up to king size. i find that now I do not have the eye sight or I don't have that kind of patience with being extremely precise anymore.So I leave the detail stuff to the girls(all 3 are skilled craft people)

I like to do small projects that don't take lots of time or patiences.DD that quilts also has dogs so I sent her the links that i got from you girls.

Thanks again....and Happy Camping

I bought one of these, and then I realized that the cheap CanTire inverter I already had did the same thing.
It irritated me because you had to hold down a button on the inverter before it would start up, but what it was doing was reading the battery and displaying the state of charge.

LOL Glenn, yup reading all the instructions is sometimes not my strong point either.

I picked up my LED battery monitor from Princes Auto for about $20. The display is attached to the plug with a small wire so I mounted the display on the wall near the plug with double sided tape and only plug it in when I actually need it (dry camping). Like it as it has a small alarm that beeps to let me know before the battery level gets to 50% so I know to put out the solar panels. A small investment but returns are big.

Another great small gift is a small wireless indoor/outdoor digital thermometer. Put the small sensor in the fridge. The display that is also mounted on the wall tells me the fridge temp and the inside trailer temp. Helps to confirm all is well with the fridge in warm weather. I found one with a sensor that is only about 2" x 2" so it doesnt take up much space in the fridge and the wall display is not much bigger.

A friend gave Dave an annual state park pass for his (December) birthday last year. A gift we enjoyed all year!

Shows not available until January 2013. I've found a few more, might start a thread in hobbies on camping/trailer fabric and quilts.

This is a gift for the child or grandchild in your life!

Calico Critters Caravan Family

A bit pricey but pretty darn cute! I'd buy this for my granddaughter if her Mom wasn't expecting twins (too many small pieces to have around.)
