I have a binder in my Boler that contains all receipts of work done to it, sales slips for tires, plumbing parts etc. I think it a good idea to add those check lists. Also the same lists in my maintenance binder in my van.

Thank you for sharing your list and just the idea of having one. I do all of that automatically but I could easily overlook something.

Rename this thread???

Perhaps this thread should be renamed as it has evolved into Organization ideas, a topic which may have greater interest than the original.

If so, I don't know how to do that and will leave it to the more knowledgeable.

This thread was split from the original thread, because both are good discussions.

Great approach, OneOleMan. One of the things we've done is to create a cheat sheet similar to that listing each task in order for both set-up and take-down, and then laminated it so that it was durable. That way we can go through it as a sort of checklist each time to make sure we haven't neglected anything or done anything out of order (like removing the wheel chocks before connecting the Scamp to the tow vehicle!). Once it becomes old hat and you stop feeling the need to check the list, that's when you'll get into trouble.

I bought the paid for list master the other night as I swiftly exceeded their 30 item list.

I have a question about the colored plastic bins: are those the ones you keep in the trailer or what you store stuff in, in winter? I agree with your comment of not being able to find anything and that's enough of that! Right there with you, sister. Going to take some measurements of cabs inside Scamp, as that's where I need help. Can almost never find anything I need, unless it's FOOD. 😄

The top cupboards in our Triliium hold plastic storage boxes quite nicely - they are about shoe box size. Smaller boxes easily slip on top.

Thank you Linda and Hazel. Well, reading here motivated me. I got out to Wally World last night and bought a bunch of plastic storage bins after measuring cubbies and cabinets.

Very pleased! Gone are my "clusters" of plastic grocery bags and loose paraphernalia. All that's left is to label the bins, which I'll do today when I arrive at camp as rain is expected again!

I once read here about getting rid of stuff if you haven't used it in several trips, so I did that too which made room. One thing was my dogs frisbee. Try as I may to make her a bandanna wearing, frisbee catching cool hound dog, all she wants to do is play tug. So I bought her a tug rope instead. 😃

Thank you for the motivation: yay!
