I like to take my Mapgas blowtorch for starting the fire. even damp wood surrenders to that thing
A multi screwdriver and pliers and even more tools depending on how handy you are. Duct tape is mans best friend too.
Keurig machine for sure.
One thing i have to take is the larger size muffin baking tray for making "Mcmuffins". I cook the the bacon in the frying pan first. Then crack an egg into as many of the muffin separations as you want to make for people. Put bits of bacon on top of the egg and any other garnishes you like. Then a nice layer of cheese. Put tinfoil over the top to keep the heat in and put the whole thing into the bbq or oven (which should already have been on getting toasty hot) for 5 1/2 mins. Took a few tries to get that time right lol. Then when you take it out you have a perfect setup for a muffin or even just a pretty clean way to make a breakfast sandwich

We bring a canopy for the picnic table and hang our Coleman lantern on a small bungee cord from the centre frame foe a dining light. 8" galvanized steel tent pegs for anchoring the canopy on sites that typically have gravel pads, Coleman propane drip coffee maker, Outland propane fire pit (campfire bans, seems to happen more frequently), cribbage game, since we mostly dry camp I bring a champion 3100 invertor generator. Thought about solar but we camp where it mostly shady.

I had one of those Coleman propane drip coffee makers. It was awesome. I now use a regular Mr. Coffee in the motorhome though.

I wouldn't be w/o my Hughes Autoformer. Everybody always worries about surge (I also have a Surge Guard), but its low voltage that'll probably get you before a surge will.

I wouldn't trade my Strongback Elite camp chairs for anything.

Oh, a 28" fire poker. I got so tired of looking for an adequate stick when making a fire.

Thanks to this thread I'm jonsing for an ice maker now to keep refilling the cooler (we keep the Daddy Sodas in a cooler so we don't have to keep opening the fridge). I don't really want to eat up counter space inside the rig for the ice maker though; I'm assuming they aren't too good outside in the heat?

Our ice maker does pretty good, but we are in Mi were it isn't 100*+ a lot when we are camping.

Biggest thing is to stay on top of it keeping the water full and ice bin empty.

Here's what I use for ice:

http://www.amazon.com/Camco-44100-Mi...+ice+cube+tray

I run 4 of them across the bottom of my freezer and they fit perfectly. They're A LOT cheaper than an ice maker, but I think they're slower too depending on the maker's batch size. I will make ice at least twice a day the week before we leave so I have a reserve built up (I also have a plastic ice bin in the freezer), and if I continue to make it twice a day while we're camping, we rarely run out. My ice is solid too; I hear the ice that comes from the ice makers is hollow.

If I decide to use a small cooler for "adult beverages", I'll use ice packs and just switch them out periodically to keep the beverages cold. But I haven't had that need yet ...

We bought a couple of these
Cabela's Fabric Camp Table : Cabela's
and use them for everything, tables,stools for small people, and foot stools. We also like the muffin tin for mcmuffin sandwiches, we picked up a silicone muffin "tin" so we can use in the microwave.

That would not be a good idea in bear country. Even after burning the grease, it would still be a platinum plated invitation for them.

They work fine out side even at 100+. I set a camp table out under the awning during the day and leave it sit next to the trailer outside power. They are not freezers so the ice will melt in the ice maker BUT the water recycles and it just makes new ice. I move it inside at night so the squirrels don't get any ideas. I continue the process inside if I need more ice. It makes about 25lbs a day just keep adding water.
