Trailer: Escape 17 ft
Posts: 45
My wife is an A type person. When we had our old trailer she would print off THE checklist and would load the trailer accordingly. Are there any other A types out there with lists? After the long cold winter how do you restock your trailer? When we go out to see Reace to pick up our trailer in July we will have to load everything in RAV 4, I sure would hate to forget anything because we will be continuing down the Oregon coast.

Our old list is quite long, but I will show you my list if you will show me yours. I think that an email exchange would work best, but maybe a list of "should haves" could be developed just like the buyers check list.

A butane lighter and can opener are two things I have forgotten to pack.

I visualized everything we would be doing - setting up, replacing water, eating, sleeping, living, washing, shivering, etc. etc, and made my list accordingly. I've been meaning to type it up, but SQUANDERED the long winter months, so it's really not very presentable at the moment.
Sounds like your wife is a very handy person to have along!

Wow! If I take all that stuff where do I sit? Doesn't leave room for the canoe and gear or my fishing tackle.
Seriously though. If it weren't for 'THE LIST' I would probably forget to pack something I really needed and then have to go and buy something that I already have at home. AND I seem to have more seniors moments than I used to.
List

If you're heading to Oregon from Chilliwack, Camping World (or whatever that HUGE camping store is called) is 20 minutes down the I5 - I believe it would be around exit 230. You can see it from the freeway on your left.... just in case you forget something!

We go down the Oregon Coast every June - If you haven't gone before and want some ideas about places to see, send me a private message and I'll tell you about our favorite places.

Greg:

My list is relatively short, distilled down to cover things that would be a problem if forgotten. It is on the computer, and every once in a while I go over it and edit it for clarity before printing out a new copy.

Printing out a new copy is easy, but occasionally I have actually forgotten to check everything off and paid the price. Mine is separated into 1) trailer and tow vehicle preparation (things which can be done well ahead of time), 2) clothing and personal items, 3) food and supplies, and 4) departure items (such as unplugging the power cord from the wall, a useful item here). Many items on Frederick's list are permanently in the trailer, so do not get included.

Many of us have really big lists!!! (including me)

However, for picking up my trailer, I pretended I was going backpacking and only took a couple of tote bins worth of stuff that I could easily pack alongside my rather large, sprawling hounds. So, my first 10 day camping trip was pretty spartan!!

Re-outfitting the trailer after the winter is a little tedious - this year I decided to take absolutely everything out in order to do a really thorough clean - last year, I just took out stuff I thought could be affected by the cold.

We keep everything in the Scamp ready to go. Duplicate clothes, dry foods, all sundries. Behind the Scamp in the garage we installed a floor to ceiling bakers rack that holds all the accessory camping gear and we just pull what is needed for the conditions and location we're heading and go. Bedding and pots are pulled when we get home and washed then immediately returned to their place in the Scamp. List is not used cause it is already stocked.

Only downfall is keeping the better half from raiding the Scamp between trips when we run out of something in the house....
