Before we took our trailer out for the first time I felt as though I was already a veteran just by reading through the many great posts here..

2x on that!
You'll find this is an incredible source of info, especially Jayco's. We've been "trailer folk" for about 3 yrs and I learn something new every time I read posts (some of that is because I forget so much).

make sure you get a battery and full LP tank(s) from your dealer.

Bluestreak. can you copy and paste your list onto a post? If so we could put it in a new thread.

I would use the starter kit that you should get with the new rig. Go camping and enjoy the new rig.

Look around and don't break the bank trying to get everything until you see what you want. There are so many choices that you can waste a load of $$$$ before you find out what you need.

Many things beyond the basics are just nice to have but not essential. You will have a better idea what the difference is after a few trips.

Just heard from DH, apparently there is no starter kit. The dealer used to "include it" but charge an additional amount (!?) and now they just don't. I have to admit I'm not that thrilled with this dealer, but anyway.

we have pots and pans, plastic plates cups mugs and utensils, but we try to use disposible as much as possible (box of costco untensils are awesome) steak knives are good to have too, spatchulas for BBQ and non stick pans, cheap 4 slice toaster.

most places will give you an RV starter kit so you will have the basics

just think of the stuff around the house you use on a regular basis, blankets sheets lighters for starting a campfire or lighting a BBQ (i use a small propane torch alot) if you have a dog poop bags are a good idea and the most important thing is something for the kids and adults to do when it is raining or crapy out (ours have a TV and DVD player)

i find everytime we go out there is something we think about that we need or want your packing habits will always evolve

Wow just wow.....how can they sell you a trailer that you can not use?

Sounds like a bush league dealer to me.

I am reading this thread as I'm in the same boat.....new trailer and never had one....I do know my dealer includes a starter kit and they did not they would be!

I agree with you sask934 but there are some Dealers out there that dont include a starter kit. We bought our trailer form Camping World and they didnt give us a starter kit they did give us a $50. in store credit which was better as I could pick what I wanted.

My guess is that they direct you over to their store to buy the starter kit, while telling you it used to be included for an additional fee anyway so really you're not out of pocket.... or some such delights
