Welcome, Ryan! Glad you jumped in. That looks like a backpacker's list alright!

I see somebody else came from the backpacking world. OK.
Some trailer stuff is usually need like chocks, leveler, jack, road flares, etc.

Besides that stuff here's my list.

One maybe two change of clothes. Clothes selection for layering. (the extra change is addition from the backpacking)
Two sleeping bags, sans sleeping pads. (worked good in the tent so will work good in trailer)
Two sleeping bag liners. (Mostly for warm nights when the regular bags are too warm.)
4 pillows. - real luxery items compared to inflatable pillows.
1 1.1 lieter tea pot. (moved up from a .8 lieter)
2 nesting pots, sans handles. Pot lifter works great.
2 Sierria cups. Work for coffee, soup, and dinner plates.
light weight table ware set for 4.
1 Butane lighter to light the stove with. (Matches when backpacking)
2 mini-mag flashlights, the AAA type.
1 Very little folding table.

A hot pad, a dish towel, and a hand towel.
Dr Bronners Soap, small bottle.
One thermos coffee press. (1 lieter, works great and tea pot's just the right size)
Also have a couple soup cups, but I might take them out. I doubt if we'll ever use them.
A digital camera.

No DVD, VCR, TV, Sterio, etc. (PDA, and sometimes an old, old laptop computer, it won't play DVDs.)
One pair of binoculars.

Not a lot of stuff.
One small plastic tub with about a weeks worth of food. We usually add a bit that needs to go in the fridge. A few bottle of soft drinks also go in the fridge.

The tug gets a couple folding chairs and depending on what the plan is backpacks, hiking boots, day packs, and a couple bags of woodcarving tools.

That's pretty much it.

In reading other folks' lists... I realize there are two really important things I always take that I forgot to list...

the med kit... always have a well-stocked first aid kit...

and cameras... I always have photo gear along!

Well, I don't know how unusual these items we take with us are, but here are some:
1) Camera equipment (otherwise I'd never remember where we've been).
2) Broken bat (for swatting flies).
3) Maja's business cards (what kind of weird mutt IS that?).
4) Borrowed Garmin GPS with elevation readout (to let us know what are the high and low points of our trip).
4) Hydrogen peroxide (to help the dog barf up stuff we think of as unsanitary)
5) Cell phone (if there is no reception we know we have gotten far enough away).
6) Notebook for writing down mods (getting too heavy, may have to get another one).
7) DVDs : "Top Secret" and a Pink Martini concert (for when it is pouring outside).
8) Shutterbug Magazine (to convince Kathy that I think of other things than mods).
9) Old plastic urinal (Fill with grape juice. Propose a toast with the people in the next site, watch them gross out).
10) Large can of tomato juice (for skunk encounters).
11) Earplugs (obvious, except that the dog tends to eat them. I'm not telling how I know).

Hydrogen peroxide, tomato juice, earplugs???.....That's not a dog, that's part goat, part NIGHTMARE!

I'm going to be new to my little Scamp, but we have been pop-up campers for years.... and the things I can't do without are: a coffee pot- which we, in the pop up- did an old fashioned perk pot on the stove- but in my Scamp- I can put in an electric drip pot now- for the times we may camp at places with the electricity available!!!!

I must have lamps- either a battery, electric or coleman- and BOOKS. And a great camp chair for sitting outside!

Ah, you coffee drinkers are an addicted bunch! (I should know...don't drink it myself, but my better half can't be more than 3 minutes away from "the source" when his craving hits.) We've taken a portable drip with disposable filters that fits over a cup. You pour boiling water on top and can get a pretty decent cuppa joe (I've been told). Now that we're hooked up to 'lectricity (we're wired on a seperate battery and have a solar recharger) we're thinking of bringing the electric coffee-maker. We found a fabulous one (Black & Decker) that makes one cup at a time - heats its own water and forces steam through a filter. It takes up very little counter space. You can probably get these somewhere in the States, but in Canada they sell at Canadian Tire (where else?) for $20 regular and about $12 on sale. There are other brands, but the B&D has a double filter.

Hmmm...wonder if it would be worthwhile to start a book thread? What kind of summer reading do people do? What books would they recommend?
