You need a list..... (UPDATED)

Updated: Apr 8, 2022



One of the first things we learned from all of our reading is as a new (and first time) owner you need a list.

All the horror stories... people pulling off with out their stabilizers up. They guy that took the unwanted bath, and then needed one because he didn't make sure his black tank valve was closed before he took the cover off.. it goes on and on. We stared at each other. "What the hell are we getting into" I thought.


We found several sites that had bits and pieces of we wanted or thought we needed in a list, but nothing that really matched up to our Tiny Camper, so we made one. Because our trips may include Hook-ups, or may be Boondocking and we wanted an all inclusive list that covered all that we needed. So we made the little list below to get us on our way. Obviously this isn't everything, but for those starting out it is a start. You can move this to a different file format that you can print each time then just check the boxes! We hope you find it useful.
