We camped in pup for years and now have bought a HTT. We didnt have much storage in the pup of course. We are having a rough time in figuring out what we should get to keep in it to see time packing prior to trips. Was wondering what you folks on here kept as standards in yours.

We went from pups to the Hybrid in 2010. My answer may be different then others since we're not big packers for camping, just simple people that relax by the fire. We don't even use a cooler anymore unless it's for a week long trip with guests. Even then it's just a small one for drinks.

We basically keep a set of all needed pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc in the camper at all times. We also have a set of towels just for the camper that get washed when home and put right back in.

We use a double sleeping bag, but also have a couple blankets in there at all times

For the outside in the storage area, we have an awning mat, rake, broom, lights, table cloths, and some outdoor games.

We do a lot of local weekend trips within an hour or so.
During the season, I keep the trailer plugged in at home with the fridge on so some things stay right in there like ketchup, mustard, some drinks, frozen food in the freezer, etc.

For those weekends it's a dream compared to the PUP. All we have to do is:

1. Put food from the grocery store directly into the camper from the truck.
2. Throw some clean clothes in the cabinet.
3. Put the chairs, grill, and some firewood in the back of the truck.

4. Hook up and go!

If I already have the food, I can basically decide to go and be ready in less than 45 minutes.

Both DW and I also usually bring something to work on while were there. She brings scrapbooking supplies, and I bring some sort of art project plus my laptop.

Personal items in the bathroom--everything except more expensive makeup etc
towels, washcloths, tissues, TP, tissues
bedding--whatever you like
small trashcans--1 for galley, 1 for bathroom
plastic grocery bags for trashcan liners
good first aid kit
spare glasses, hats, sunblock, backpack, etc
*kitchen--
one small pot, one large pot, one small skillet, one large skillet
cover for stuff in microwave
collapsible colander
cutting board
percolator
plates, bowls, eating utensils
dishtowels, dishcloths, potholders, paper towels, ziploc bags
cooking utensils, sharp knives, can opener, corkscrew & wine bottle stoppers


During camping season, I keep a good stash of non-perishable food. To load up, we just add perishable food. Start the fridge about 12 hours ahead of loading it.

For winter storage, I remove almost everything, especially stuff that would make a mouse home or snack.

We treat our camper as we would a cottage. During the season there's always some clothing and enough canned or otherwise securely packaged food for an "emergency dinner." Chile and Rice works well for us. Rarely need it as a quick stop at any grocery will provide a weekend's worth of food if we hadn't shopped earlier.

Things like WalMart pots, pans, and tableware remain in the camper all the time as do the king size sleeping bags (Make beds? Ya gotta be kidding!), jackets, boots, and towels. The camper gets packed for her next "mission" the night we get home from the last.

Normal drill is to bring the camper home from the storage yard and plug into power the night before we're to leave. This charges the battery and gets the refrigerator cold. The next morning or evening we finish packing the refrigerator and pantry as well as personal clothing. Get home from work and hook up.

After 30 years in an 8' PUP we moved to a 24' hybrid. Biggest and best is the refrigerator.

Basically you will have to decide how to camp. Most of what you used in the pup works except you probably will have figured out less suitcases and more permanent clothes and staples storage.

I would suggest that you take what you think you need. Plan the first two trips close to Walmarts or the like. If you need something you can get it. After the first trip it will become pretty apparent what you won't need or won't work well. By the second trip's completion you will have it about 95% figured out.

We start out with very little fresh food, we figure on getting that when we land the first day. We do carry enough for a day or so and special dietary requirements for DW.

Not really a whole lot different than pup camping, just a whole lot more convenient and comfortable.

Good luck and have fun!!!

Paper plates, Napkins, plastic utensils. These save time on doing dishes! All we have to wash is pots/pans. Tablecloths, leveling blocks, tire chocks, extra blankets. We also purchased an electric heater. I figure if I'm paying for electricity, I don't need to use up my LP. Tabletop grill w/ LP bottles. I still bring a cooler for beverages. My fridge is usually packed with food. I bought an outdoor patio rug also that I place under the awning.
Don't forget the beer! :-)

We have jackets and sandals/flip flops for all of us that we leave in the trailer. I like my pot and pans from home (Revereware stainless steel), so I have found duplicates of them at thrift stores to keep in the trailer. I also keep a full supply of our favorite seasonings in the trailer, as well as extra batteries for flashlights and such.

Thanks for all the ideas, and i will say that even being a paramedic a first aid kit would not have been on my list.
