Those of us who live on the road full-time learn very quickly to strike a balance when it comes to our “supplies.” It’s not like a house where you can just fill your basement and attic with a lot of toys and equipment you never use (although, as a Professional Organizer, I’ve never been a fan of “garage clutter” — all of my tools, sports equipment, and lawn toys were hung neatly on wall hooks!)
Of course you have to carry with you everything that you’ll need for daily RV life, as well as for repairs and minor emergencies — but you’re limited to what will fit in a couple of very small storage compartments. So the best options are portable, travel-sized, multi-functional, or collapsible. That’s why I own an inflatable canoe, a roll-up picnic table, and chairs that fit in a bag!
Throughout my travels, I have figured out exactly what I need and what I don’t — tools, recreational items, utility connections, outdoor furnishings, even decorative embellishments. It took me a bit of trial and error, some cleaning out and a few new purchases to get it right — so let me share my supply list with you…
