Your question is very vague. All I can say is stock what you plan to use. Take a notepad to write down what you wish you brought and stock it next time. Camp close to home or in your driveway at first so things you may need are nearby.
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
- Soren Kierkegaard
Step 1) put everything you think you need in the trailer
Step 2) camp in your driveway, and the next day put more stuff in the trailer
Step 3) go camping near home, and every day make a trip to Walmart for things you didn't realize you needed (who knew you needed a small bathmat until you actually take a shower)
^^^Or you can just fold a big bathmat in half. You don't have to get SPECIAl RV stuff, which is more expensive.
You will need bedding, towels, all the personal stuff used for showers, and basically the same stuff you use at home, only not as much of it.
I cook when we travel, but keep it simple, lots of one-dish meals.
I have a basic set of cooking utensils, a collapsible colander, small cutting board, big pot, small pot, big skillet, small skillet, plastic or disposable plates/cups, some yard sale stainless flatware.
We use a stove-top metal percolator for coffee, because we often camp without electric hookup.
My advice is to keep what you need but keep it minimal, you don't have to replicate EVERYTHING, the lighter you travel the more enjoyable it is.

Try to 'envision' yourself going thru a day in the TT. You get up, do you need an alarm clock? Coffee or tea-what do you need to make it, etc. We have been guilty of the 'what-ifs'. What if the batteries go dead in the lantern, what if we run out of water,etc. You tend to overpack that way. Take paper/pen so you can make a list of things to bring/leave home. Good Luck!
Don't forget personal items like bug spray, sun tan lotion, sun burn lotion, (for when you forget to put in the sun tan lotion) pit juice, women need there uh,,, things, If your single man like me you might want to bring protection,any daily medication you take, over the counter pain killers, stuff for a upset stomach, and other such things.
Stocking an RV is very much like stocking your kitchen or bedroom at home: only you know what you like and don't like, use and don't use, need and can live without.
Here's a short list, but you will need to fill in the details for your specific needs, wants, style, and taste:
1. Personal hygiene items and clothing, including toilet paper
2. Dinnerware/flatware: your choice - Plastic, paper, both?
3. Cooking utensils: your style of cooking - pot, pans, ect, over fire pit, stove top, BBQ grill, other?
4. Bedding: Sleeping bags or blankets, sheets, pillows, something else?
5. Food items: whatever you enjoy eating and maybe those things you eat only on special occasions. make every meal in your camper "special!"
6. Cleaning items: for floors, dishes, toilet, windows, ect. Think of dirt from the campground (sweeping or moping floors, ect). (I've found that Dawn Dishwashing liquid works great for everything, and we only carry that one cleaning item unless we're out for several days, then we bring bleach for laundry to wash whites. Dawn works great for household cleaning, dishes, laundry,as well as your body). We also keep oven cleaner for when we actually cook over an open fire and use the oven cleaner to remove the black soot from the pots and pans from the fire. Deeper cleaning that that (even windows) can be done at home. Keep the heavy-duty cleaning stuff at home, for stuff to wash the outside and windows for example.
7. Break down tools. A SMALL assortment of handy-man tool: pliers, screw driver, duct tape, velcro, rope, adjustable wrench, extension cords, ect. Don't go overboard. You don't need to carry a mechanics garage in your RV.
8. Sanitary: Whatever you will need for dumping your black and gray tanks and cleaning afterwards.
9. Garden hoses for water supply.
10. Personal entertainment items (could be radio, television, computer, games, books, or nothing at all)
11. A good map with detailed county roads and/or a GPS system. Comes in VERY handy when in new locations.
There again, these are the most important "areas" to consider. Only you can fill in details.
There is no right or wrong way to stock an RV. There are no specific stores that carry everything either. And what and how you stock your camper is just as individualized as you are.
For us, we keep good quality, NEW items in the camper. We have no other forms of entertainment in our lives except camping. So the camper is our vacation resort, it's our "Holiday Inn", our "5 Star Motel", our luxury liner cruise. So we like to keep nice things in the camper, not just left-overs from the house or stuff that's migrated to the attic or basement. New plush pillows, new bedding, fresh sheets, nice dinnerware (and lots of paper products too), good cookware, my best "handy-man" set of tools, good hoses, and ALWAYS ... the best food! The television is the best we could find and afford at the time. Now ... that did not happen over night. We stared camping with a tent from the back of the pick-up truck with LOTS of hand-me-down and yard sale stuff. But over time, those items slowly got replaced with new items. (I mean 27 years of marriage replacement items). But somewhere along the line, we realized we really wanted to be spoiled in the camper. So why not strive for the finest and best we could afford.... actually, the silverware and knife set is far superior in the camper than anything in our house! ... There is no right or wrong way to do it.
