Judging by that post it was a good bottle of red too. ;).

I keep very little in the CT as I'm just as likely to be tenting or swagging it, depending on location of the next trip. I do keep the kids bunks in there and the Coleman hot water unit, every thing else is in the shed and gets used up as required. Most of my mates keep the CT fully loaded just to hook up after work and they're ready for a quick get away. I've never managed to be that organised but can throw a swag and a bottle of red in the car pretty quickly if needed,

G,day Laura

The things that are in my camper 24/7 are;

chairs
fold out table
shower tent and shower
camp oven
toasty toasty maker
bucket
gas bottles (soon to be mounted on the outside)
lighting (12v and gas mantle type) and extension pole
a decent size bit of canvas
bbq
all this is in a pull out box next to the pull out (home made) kitchen

In the kitchen is basically what you have said above.

The bed gets made a few days prior to leaving except pillows as I take them from home

Enjoy setting up the new camper as you want it.

Cheers Luke

Same as Pat, we never know if we'll take the tent. Besides our old clunker C/T can't handle the really rough stuff so if we need 4WD, the C/T stays home.

It's got blankets, sheets, pillows, tables, lights, poles, a camp oven, pegs, a hammer, bunks for the kids, a trangia stove and some metho, a dustpan and broom, bits of timber for levelling, a bit of dry firewood and some newspaper...

Anything else gets chucked in on Friday nights!

Laura,

I'm another one who keeps most of their gear permantently packed in the vehicle as I mostly swag or tent it. I keep the Coleman HWS, rubber ducky and other stuff I don't use much in the CT.

An emergency bottle of Rum for when others visit and some panadol for the next morning ;))

Cheers Kev

Allways packed and ready to go ,, only thing required is a constant update of "pantry" use by dates which is done on a regular basis ,,

Don't have a CT anymore. But I always had the following in there.

2m length of garden hose and a bag of assorted fittings, small tube of silicon, small tin of waterproofing goop, graphite puffer for the zips, antrid, a football, cricket bat and a tennis ball.

As well, we had all our camping crates in there. Easy to store but everything else was stored in the shed.

I have always kept my pantry stuff up to date by taking all food stuffs- papertowel, glad wrap etc out of the van when we get home and replacing it with new items. That way I am sure the van pantry is stocked for the next trip.
