What I find essential is my coffee press and good coffee. Nothing, I mean Nothing happens until I have my coffee--even speaking!!! I can heat the water either on the stove inside, or the propane stove outside, or even the microwave if in a blind hurry. Once I have a couple cups sitting in my chair outside--life is good and I might be able to speak a few words.
2. We have a teeny mobile bar--those 50s kind in leather--too cool!--and I consider a good drinky at the end of the day pretty essential.
3. Add to that our new tiny port-a-potty that fits under the couch. If you have ever awakened in the night with the ickys, believe me, it is essential!!! We now have a little shower tent that we can erect behind the Scamp when we have room.
4-5. I agree with the cell for sure, and the repair kit. We have all our essentials like that in a little rollable rubbermaid 3-drawer thingy. We put it behind the trailer and it seems rainproof so far.
6. Also we bring a folding propane camp stove from our tenting days, also nice collapsible chairs and table.
7. personals like Shower-after-Shower powder, a gallon of water (in case), and a washcloth!
That's it for me. Although we do not full-time and have never camped these days without electricity--I do not leave the driveway without these items above. I do bring along too many clothes and shoes, and I love having our little rug to place on the ground outside our camper just to keep dirt from following us inside--plus it looks cool and matches the Scamp logo color! When weather is bad, I really enjoy my laptop and the TV and I usually bring my little radio/tape player (I'm a little old school still).
I envy you full timers and might want to try for an extended travel date with my Scamp, but I don't know if I can leave my pakrat ways that far behind! I know hubby will not pay storage costs for all my 'stuff'. ha!

Cabela's also makes a LaFuma style lounger which is very high quality and often goes on sale for half price. We have two and LOVE them. We are both large people and they are very sturdy and comfortable.
They are on sale right now.
