I don't know what Bigfoot
Water Hose - one that says suitable for potable/drinking water. (Never mix this hose with other hoses, one you may decide to get for waste water flushing for example.)
Water Pressure Regulator - necessary if you hook up to city water
Trailer Levelers - All ground is not level. You want the trailer to be level. Can be scrap wood or prepackaged dealies from camping store. (I have a box of miscellaneous pieces of scrap wood in my trailer.)
Bubble Levels - Attach to body of trailer as an aid with trailer leveling.
Waste Hoses - Prior to departure check to see if you can visualize how you hook up the hoses you have and how they will work with your outlets and valves. You may need extenders or connector modifiers. At some dump sites and some campgrounds with hookups, you will be able to connect your hose to the sewage inlet directly. Your trailer could be low, high or slightly distant from the inlet. Try to visualize what hose modification you will need.
Chocks for trailer tires
Lock for trailer hitch
Stabilizer jacks - let your stabilizers down at home and walk around in the trailer. If you don't like the amount of bounce, get additional stabilizer jacks. Cheapies from an auto supply place will do.
Lug Wrench - Check your lugs at least every other gas stop. When the trailer is new, they seem to need more frequent tightening Check your tire pressure when you do this. Also make sure your propane
is off for the gas stops.
Extension Cord and Adaptor - Orange outdoor type cord and an adaptor that lets you hook trailer into house shore power. (Don't know what connectors you have, but you want adaptors sufficient to let you draw off house current and be able to hook in at parks which are 30 and 30 amp.
Chairs for sitting outside. A little side table is also good.
Extra keys - one set hidden and extra set for each person occupying trailer.
Flashlights - at least a couple
Duct Tape - No one can live without duct tape
Ziplocs in different sizes
Hammer and/or mallet
First Aid kit
CLEANING STUFF For self and trailer.
Marine/RV toilet paper
A small broom and dustpan, floor towel or mop if you have linoleum. Additionally, a car vac or dustbuster if you have carpet.
Think small and light weight
. Trial size packages work well.
Stick to biodegradable brands. A mild cleanser like Ivory dish detergent works for hair, skin, dishes, and hand washable clothing.
I'll let folks who actually cook comment here.
A very small microwave
or toaster oven is a nice add if you don't have one.
I have a small camping mess kit, can opener, spaghetti pot, one skillet, a lightweight 4-place setting Rubbermaid microwavable, resealable, freezer set of plates, glasses, and bowls, cutlery, dish pan, wash and dry cloths.
MY NOT NECESSARY STUFF
- I have a set that I wrap around the awning
. Low light, low watt aid in finding trailer after dark. They don't disturb the neighbors and they make you easy to find.
Portable Lamp - Depends on how well lit your trailer is. I like bright light for reading.
I have a sling blade and rake for campsite clearing.
Probably not applicable to your 17ft Bigfoot
If you don't have gray water tanks, a blue dump tank or something comparable to capture waste water. Here in the SE many parks will punish (stiff fines) for gray or black water dumping onto the land.
A heating source - disc heater or propane/butane adder like Black Cat
