We have empty space in our 13' Ventura and have never discovered that we don't have something we need. We do replenish groceries as we go though (never needed to if the trip is less than a week). We started out tenting - maybe that is what everyone should do! Once I forgot the cast iron frying pan - but remembered it before we got to the park so had lots of time to think through the problem of 'how to cook without it'.

because of our table being left permanently down as our bed and because it is SO difficult to access those under-bed compartments, ours remain empty. a waste of space, we've been told numerous times...not utilizing it to its' full potential etc etc.
well, as i wrote earlier, we still have empty spaces and yet always have exactly what we need, when we need it and usually what the neighbours need, too.

less truly IS more!

We purchased two covered tubs that fit relatively well under the bed. To the back one I attached two straps for retrieval. We keep our clean clothing in them.

Yes, I cut back in my last camper and did fine. Before that I had everything and anything anyone wanted plus a lot extra

After several years of using our Ventura and finding that it has lots of space for 'stuff' we find ourselves a tad frustrated that there doesn't seem to be a way of fitting in the furniture so that the people can be more comfy. I wish for a bed that we can each get in and out of without one of us crawling over the other. It would even be good enough to have two full size bunks - although we generally share a bed it isn't essential to us. We CAMP so don't need cooking/water supply inside - but a porta pottie would be nice in the middle of the night.

Shed is just more stuff to set up. Should have bought the model with a basement.

I agree coming from a tenting/backpacking background helps. If you have to lug it out each time and pack it or worse yet carry it all day one tends to "refine" the check list.

We also will probably always have our table as a bed and won't have easy access to the under seat storage. I'm checking our list of equipment and supplies to see what I take but don't need very often. Most of my tools, coleman fuel can, jack etc. are all headed for there.

I'm not sure if it is how much space you have, but how much time. Over the years of restoring our boler American while still using it to camp, we were always packing on the go, both for what we need to camp and what we need to do the next job. One day it just became too much and we took inventory. Lo and behold, beyond all the parts for the trailer and everything for the dogs, we found that we were packing 5 egg flippers.

Do we really need it all? I think they call it Glamping ...

People have crossed the Atlantic in covered rowing craft and there's an article in the N Y Times Sunday magazine every year it seems featuring 300 sq. ft. houses. Many things defeat the pocket cruiser idea: kids, dogs, friends, geriatric inflexibility, and of course stuff for which there is a projected need. Don't project needs beyond gas, grub, and sunblock and you won't have to pack stuff you'll never look at again until you arrive home to unpack.

Cool Unloading "Stuff"

We just got rid of our treadmill and TRS-80 today.

Note:

We didn't keep these in Homelet!
