Just add MONEY!!

We have a new trailer and will be taking it out in a week and a half. I've been slowly stocking it up w/ stuff like small coffee pot, toaster, etc. Well, before you know it, we've spent "a little" bit of money and haven't even left the yard !! But it's all good and fun. I consider it a challenge on purchasing multi-tasking items to keep the weight down.

We are so looking forward to this 'task.' We've got dedicated trailer towels, trailer bathmat, old milk cartons etc. for stuff in the storage areas, collapsible bowls, 3 ways to make coffee, silverware bought at a garage sale, battery boxes, jacks and jack stands, and.... Really, REALLY, looking forward to having this trailer!

Money well spent. Once you get everything set up you will have less to spend and more time to relax.

We are in the same boat. Bought our trailer in October (still sitting at the dealer) and we have been slowly buying items for months. I haven't kept track of what we have spent, but I'm sure I probably don't want to know.

I found the TT consumed 75% of the budget and the "necessary" items consumed the remaining 75%. But it's ok because when you look at the big picture it adds up to one damn fine time.
Enjoy! You won't pass this way again.

Most of what we've bought for set up we won't ever purchase again, or not for a very long time, anyway. It's like setting up any house for the first time. Maybe we should start a new trend...Trailer Showers!
