Here is a PDF copy of the Excel file I have set up. It does need refining, but I have been saying that for a few years now. But hey, it works for us.

I do have additional lists for stuff like canoe gear, especially if going for an overnight trip while out, as well as a long list for camera gear too.

It would be neat to combine all these lists.

Thanks for that list Jim, always interesting to see what others find useful when camping. I ended up purchasing a camera backpack from Amazon Essentials collection.

It was inexpensive and held most everything camera I own, I use it as storage at home. Have been thinking about getting a second one so I can load one with only what I need to take and leave the other at home. I can get the basics in a shoulder bag but has no room for anything beyond the body & lens plus flash or second lens pick one. Shoulder bag works but would not mind being able to take a flash & second lens rather than having to pick one. Plus something to carry a remote or small tripod would be nice.

And rent an 18 wheeler to haul the combined total.

At home, I have a LARGE Pelican case that holds my cameras, lenses and gear, aside from tripods, monopods, and light stands and gear. I also have a couple backpacks, messenger bag, and smaller Pelican cases, all for smaller loads. Hmmmm.... I think I might have a camera gear addiction.

I have a nice small travel tripod of decent quality that will strap to most packs. I like to take it when on a hike, but don't usually carry one around in urban areas.

Give me time, it takes awhile to build up a tolerance for the price of that particular addiction. I'm currently working on my FGRV addiction and will no doubt get myself and any disposable income back to the other eventually.

I pack what I think I'll need (and remember), and and double-check that I've remembered to bring a credit card so I can buy anything I need along the way.

Don't over-think it. Load up and have fun!

It took me 12 years, but I think I've finally figured out a method to stop hauling STUFF back and forth. I'm keeping my trailer packed. Bought some new stuff, took duplicate stuff from house to trailer, stuff from Scamp to 5.0TA and shopped at second-hand stores and garage sales. Other than a couple of very specific items, the only thing I need to go camping is to grocery shop for fresh food.

Previously, I found getting ready to camp exhausting and then getting back home... just as bad. I thought trailer camping was supposed to be easy!

For instance, I'd get home from camping, wash the dirty clothes, towels, etc. and put them away in my home. Time to go camping, go through those drawers, pack in totes and back in the trailer. WHAT was I thinking!? I only use those clothes, towels, etc. when I camp... just wash them and put them back in the trailer!

Okay, so I'm a late bloomer.

YMMV

Donna,
I think you have it right. Going camping should be enjoyable, not exhausting!

We do the same thing Donna.
The only thing we need to do to go camping is very some fresh food, grab our travel kits snd dog food and we're off.
I even keep a duplicate set of tools in the scamp.

We too keep most things in the trailer, but not everything.

Some basic clothes, mostly footwear and outerwear, but everything else is brought specific for a trip.

Things like guitars, camera gear, bikes, books, food, all get packed up before each trip. Using our list, and many years of experience, it does not take all that long. Menu planning and food likely takes as much time as everything else put together.

The problem with keeping the trailer in the driveway is that it tends to become the pantry for the house.
I often discover I have no #4 coffee filters in the trailer because we ran out at home.

Trade in the paper filters for a reusable one. Not only will you save the environment, the coffee tastes brighter, as paper filters out some of the oils. That way you can have one in each place. 'tis what I do. Win-win.
