What is your most prized camper accessory?

Of all the cool and useful gadgets and accessories on the market and all of the neat little creations people have made out of necessity or convenience most of us have that one favorite item that we simply can not do without while camping. Its that one item that you would return home to retrieve if forgotten and usually the first thing that you would secure if a severe storm comes blowing in to the campground. So not counting people or pets, what is that one item you hold most dear?
For me it is my reclining camp chair. It wasn't expensive and isn't anything real fancy but it is my favorite chair and so far no others seem to be as comfortable for me while sitting by the fire.

Nothing not permanently attached to the TT is worth turning around for. Buying a substitute locally or doing without will have to suffice.


Other than food & clothing; All of the camping gear is stored in the TT. Rarely does anything get left behind.


Accumulation of extras is the ongoing battle.

1) Everything critical for the trip is already in the TT (set-up items, cooking implements, camping clothing and shoes).
2) If we forget living necessities (order of criticality: coffee, gene gas, quarters for the campground shower, food, personal hygiene items, clothes), then we start planning for errand runs.
3) Of things on our 'check-list to bring' that we can't buy on-the-road, I'd list electronics (hot-spot, cell phones, kindles, laptops or tablets) as necessities ~ but we never overlook these as the truck has a charging station that reminds us before we pull away from home.
4) Making sure we've topped-off or addressed things that may be tougher to acquire away from home (not always available at the camp site ... fresh water, charged batteries, full propane tanks, diesel/DEF supplied, tire pressure).
5) So, to answer the questions, we just can't leave home without a positive attitude! Put away the arguments, crankiness, and sniping; head out with a smile on everyone's face, a sense of adventure, and the ability to tolerate the worst. Even the most horrid outings eventually leave us with an outstanding story - have I told you about the time ........

That's why it's my prized accessory I'm flexible with everything else and a few tools just in case.

My most flexible tool seems to be the credit card.

I'm with Mike, pretty much nothing is worth turning back for. And everything that's really important is already in the trailer.

However there are a few things that I can think of that I must have with me. The #1 item being my camera and related equipment. Half of what I do on any trip is photography. Second behind the camera is my tablet. I rarely read paper books and magazines anymore, so everything I want on a trip for my leisure time at the campsite.

My wife. She wasn't impressed the last time I forgot. Lol

My Weber grill. I just love it. I would turn around if less than 15 minutes out.
