Five Months From Full-time RVing

Full Time RVing Preparations

With just over four months left until we get married, leave Colorado, and travel full time in our RV, we are getting really excited! Here is a current list of where we are in our preparations:

“With Every Step Comes a Decision to Make Another. Which direction are you heading?”

Gear and Tools for our Truck Camper

We’ve been working on what we’d like to bring with us versus what we actually need. Since we are moving into a truck camper, our space will be limited. Therefore, we have to know exactly what we NEED first, and then sort through what we WANT. Here is a few things that we’d like to have with us:

Necessary Parts and Tools to take Camping

We’d also like to bring common tools and parts that will prevent us from getting stranded in places like Alaska. Here are some of my ideas on what we would like to have just in case.

  • Extra Serpentine Belt
  • 1 3/4″ axle nut socket
  • Hex Key (sized to take off brake calipers, plus a few extra)
  • Hammer
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Two Sizes of Pliers (one small, one large)
  • Motor Oil
  • Engine Coolant
  • Small Container of Windshield Wiper Fluid
  • Tire Tool
  • Four Ton Hydraulic Jack 
  • Extra Electric Wire
  • Duct Tape
  • Electrical Tape
  • Extra Bolts, Nuts, Washers, and Screws
  • Extra Fuses
  • Tire Plug Kit
  • Extra Head, Brake, & Reverse lights
  • Grease Gun
  • Spare Tire
  • C-clamp
  • Mini Sledge Hammer
  • C pin needle nose pliers
  • Bungee Cords

Did you notice anything we might be forgetting? We would like to only bring things that will help us not to get stranded, and maybe (if we have room), a few other things. Message us or let us know your thoughts in the comments! Thank you!
