Things you don't need

I've seen lots of posts and read online articles about things you need for camping or for your travel trailer.

What are some things you don't need or want?
I know everyone's ideas will differ since we all camp differently and want different experiences.
But I'm curious about what you don't think is necessary or helpful.

A television. I'm ripping the one that came with my new trailer out before our first trip.

The basics expanded it in to the things we don't need, the expansion is more complicated, the basics is simple. Hey I'm more than guilty...
We can learn to love the in-laws, its hard but doable.

Donít need anything on the trailer or the trailer itself. Needs are relative. Only really need a sleeping bag and water with an mre or two.

I realize I'm a newbie, but I thought there were certain items you really need if you have a TT for the sake of safety and to keep the TT from being damaged.

I guess I was thinking some would say they don't need a grill because they cook over a fire.
Or they don't bring soap and shampoo because they don't bathe and like to smell all gamey.
That sort of thing.

Things we don't need? The list to too long for this forum.

DW thinks we need to be glamping so we when bought the Pup and again when we bought the Travel Trailer, she had to go buy matching dishes, silverware, towels, bedding etc. And of course she has to pack two bags for a weekend at the lake.

Are you starting to get the idea?

This is going to vary from person to person depending on how you camp. What we "needed" 10 years ago is different from what we "need" now. Every so often we purge things we no longer use. Conversely every so often we add something we think we can't live without.

I know it will vary from person to person. That's what I was hoping for.
It's interesting to see how everyone does things differently and still can say they had fun.
