We're a laundry basket family. Usually 2 to expedite the process, one loading the other unloading. The laundry goes in and comes out in the collapsible mesh hampers.

I had to Google 31 bags and boy am I glad. Not telling DW about those

Here I was wondering what in the world anyone would put in 31 grocery bags to go in and out of the camper. And who counts out 31 exactly?

I think we'll stick with the laundry baskets.

We always have a bunch of these on hand, for trash can liners and cleaning up after the dog. I found a great tip on the InterWebs how to store them. Grab and empty tissue box and stuff them in there. It takes up very little space and you can just pull them out like tissues. I figure we can get 20 or 30 in there before it gets too full.

We use collapsible crates, laundry baskets and a foldable wagon to take stuff to the opposite side of the house where the TT is parked. Makes packing and unpacking easy.

We clean and unpack the TT after most weekend trips because we never know when the next one may be. If we know we are taking it out within the week we will plug it in and just bring in the laundry to do and take inventory of what we need to restock.

And since 31 bags are expensive, I googled something with the same description and got a generic one for seven dollars if I ordered five. I love those things! When I had a smaller camper and was going for a couple of months and didn't really have storage in the camper, I used a few of those bags sitting in the backseat of my SUV for my clothes storage. Kept a few clothing items in the camper and each one of those bags in the car held for example summar kind of clothes or heavy sweaters etc.

We remove all food and anything having to do with food. I vacuum all places where food has been very thoroughly... mice can do a lot of damage and they stink. Ants can be a real bother, too.

Mice and bugs are a huge concern for any camper. I load my camper up with dryer sheets after we empty it out for the season. I also have stray cats around our neighborhood. I also bring in any paper products or anything that would make a nice nest for them. I put my cushions usually stacked on table. Who else leaves there TV in the camper during winter.

We try to stock as much non-perishable as we can in the unit. For everything else we haul it back and forth with a collapsible wagon (from QVC). It's a nice size wagon so I only have to make about 3 trips between the house and the camper. The wagon is also nice to take along on long trips in case we need to do laundry at the RV park.

We keep our 5th Wheel fully stocked with non perishables all the time along with a full wardrobe of clothes, toiletries ect. Because we stay plugged in at home, we are able to leave some items in the frig. We too like to be ready to roll at a moments notice. I keep a small amount of water in our fresh tank for traveling. I ran a practice once and we were hooked up and ready to roll in less than 45 minutes.
