We keep the camper stocked up. We have to make lists of the things we take out of the camper when we are at home. For example I went out and got the pop corn the other night.......so I have to put that back.

I will admit that I am pretty anal when it comes to these things and I do have a checklist in the back of a spiral notebook, but that downloadable PDF checklist is 23 pages long ! With that long of a checklist like that I would never want to leave.

I go generic; Beer, food, clothes, camera, hiking equipment and more beer.

I have an excel list, though I haven't updated it in a few years. Your more than welcome to it if you'd like. Just pm me your email address.

There are some great ideas here! One thing DW does is to make a menu for the entire trip, each meal in detail including every thing it takes to make it, serve it, and eat it. Of course there are duplicates but this makes sure you have all the seasoning, utensils and condiments. This may sound tedious but she saves them to use over and over and we now have enough menus for a good variety. LW

We do this too. In fact one of the first things we do after we finalize a reservation and commit to the trip is make a detailed meal plan. This feeds the grocery list and the "don't forget to bring from home" list. Then we'll do the grocery shopping the day before we leave since the trailer has been at home for a few days by that point, the fridge is nice and cold.

A bit late to the party but here is the one that I created for us.

It is in MS Word format so you can edit it.

We started with a giant list and over time it's gotten much smaller. Mostly we have bought duplicate things for the camper that stay in there through the season, like utensils, towels, shampoo/toothpaste/etc, but I still look to make sure they are there so that nothing is forgotten and check it off of the list. There are the tool-type things that stay in the garage, like a jack or the portable charcoal grill that have been added to the list so we don't forget those. But for the most part, we've streamlined over time and stopped taking as much stuff as we used to. Before departure, we pack food and clothes/toiletries that aren't already in the camper. On my list, I've highlighted all of the items that stay in the camper 24/7 so I know at a glance what should be in there.

I rarely even plan meals. We go camping to relax, not to do the same thing we have to do at home, then need to wash dishes, etc. We stick to sandwiches or simple things like burgers or hot dogs over the fire. We do prepare breakfast, but that's about as elaborate as we get. And even then, lately we have started going to a tasty new café that has opened in our favorite campground to have breakfast. So easy!
