Accessories you need for your RV

I am not sure if I am alone in this, but I have had feelings of awkwardness and ignorance – the likes I have not felt since a freshman in high school – from the moment we brought home our Little Guy Max trailer.

As I mentioned in my previous post, this is our first time as RV owners. Russ and I attempted tent camping a few times and I can’t say we were exceptionally successful. During one memorable attempt, we arrived at a campground as it was starting to rain. After about an hour, frozen fingers and a few colorful words, we gave up and walked into the campground office to ask if any cabins were available. What possessed us into thinking we were qualified to do this?

Well…it’s too late now. The RV is sitting in our driveway and we have a mile-long list of all the places we want to visit. Before I can even begin to be stressed about how daunting it will be to try to back into our first campsite, apparently there is still quite a bit of shopping to do. Hitch coupler locks, chocks, sewer hoses, something called a “dogbone”?

Different RV’s come with different amenities, but I have found out there are items that you will still need to purchase in order to take full use of your new investment. Thankfully, there were many helpful people online willing to give us advice!

Here is a list of what we wound up buying for our Little Guy Max. You can click on any item to see more detail and how to purchase if you need it for yourself:
