All we have to pack is food for the refrigerator and freezer plus the medicine kit. I do not like to leave medicine in the trailer where it gets so hot during the summer.

About the same as others. We pretty much leave everything in there except most clothes, food, water, etc...then depending on the trip, we wmight take a few extra things like our daughter, she will bring something different to play with or read everytime. I might bring a magazine or two with us. And then of course the camera and some other electronic gadgets.

Matter of fact, the last trip our wife brought the crockpot to make a meal (in our blog). I went out and bought another crock pot to put and leave in the camper.

You can see there is a pattern here.

Any food type that will spoil before our next trip gets removed (refrig/freezer items, breads, cereal, chips, etc).

Dirty clothes come out when we return, once washed, I put mine back, wife and daughter just pack prior to the next trip. Dish and bath towels and washclothes go back in along with sheets and pillow cases once cleaned.

I think you'll find most people use as much of this food and clothes only method as possible as it saves work loading and unloading and secondly, allows you to pack very quickly for a spur of the moment trip. We use our camper much more for the quick getaway weeekend knowing I can pull in the driveway or call ahead during my trip home and say " The weather looks beautiful for the weekend, lets go camping". My ladies are usually waiting on me to pull in with their stuff already in the camper and the frig and cooler loaded.

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.
