I carry most all my tools in the toad. I have a Costco Crescent brand cheapie toolkit for the wrench/sockets, then I have a Veto pro-pak bag I carry my quality non wrench/socket stuff, and a small plastic box which I store my Snap-On 1/4 inch stuff. I keep the 1/4 inch stuff in the rig cause it's light. I transfer the Veto pak from the toad to the motorhome so it doesn't get stolen. I leave the cheap Costco set in the toad cause if it gets stolen no big deal. If you want a nice tool bag, check out the Veto Pro-pak line. Spendy but really nice.

Having been a mechanic while in college taught me only a very basic set of tools are needed unless you are full timing. As others do I carry very basic tools in the 2nd step storage. RV people seem to carry 10x the tools needed to rebuild an engine. If the problem isn't mechanical it can wait until I get home although I do carry a small roll of Eternabond.

Still working and in the trades so I just take the tools from home that I need for camping and put them in a 5 gallon pail. That way if I need them around the house they are available.

When I do retire I will have my work/trade tools to consolidate with the home tools. At that point I will probably come up with something permanent for rving.
