I’m just ordering this for music in my Tacoma! I currently have a 16GB usb in my Tacoma, but it sticks out, is in the way, and doesn’t hold enough music. This one is low profile, won’t get in the way, and is larger!
SanDisk Ultra Fit 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Excellent quality and great size. The Fiskars Axe is a gold standard. Great for chopping firewood, great for chopping a tree that fell across the road if you can’t pull it out of the way. It’s shiny.
I have used both a Thetford Porta potti and a 5 gal “Luggable Loo” as toilets in the camper. Sometimes I use trash bags, but these Reliance Products Double Doodie Toilet Waste Bags make life so much easier.
When I was traveling in bear country, I got a bit nervous. So, I have a few different levels of self-protection. A ranger told me to yell at brown bears, and a friend suggested loud noises like an air-horn, so I got this small Falcon Safety Super Sound Horn. It doubles as an alert if I need help too.
I bought this Kuissential 8-Cup Stainless Steel French Press for my folks for in their camper. Figured unbreakable (and pretty) things are good to have in a mobile environment. They liked it so much, they bought me one for my birthday last year! Woot! It’s double-walled, so it keeps coffee warm longer than a glass carafe. And it doesn’t break if you drop it! Not that I’d know anything about that (ahem)
I can’t speak highly enough of Benchmark Maps. They have so much valuable information, especially to the hiker, camper, boondocker.
This one is for Nevada. Contact me and I’ll send you a link to any other state you need!
I’ve always had a Rand McNally road atlas. I think I got my first one when I was 16 years old. These things are a solid, excellent general road map resource.
This is another “just in case” item. Smittybilt 29312B Receiver Hitch D-Ring with 3/4-Inch Shackle for 2-Inch Receivers
Actually, I will probably end up separating this list into sections because I’ve got a fair amount of “recovery gear” in my truck.
I bought this 5 Gallon Reliance Fold-A-Carrier to use as my grey water holder. It does the trick. It lives collapsed in the back seat area of my truck, and when I park, I pop it out and run my grey water hose down to it.
Levelers are almost a must for in your camper. Sure, you can often use rocks, but I’ve camped plenty of places with no rocks or other objects to use for leveling. These Tri-Lynx 00015 Lynx Levelers are super handy, easy to use, very sturdy.
I need a “household” category too. With such a small camper, my mom suggested not wasting space with a dedicated tea kettle, but instead use a pot, but I like the ‘home’ aspect of a tea kettle. This little Copco Halo 1.2-Quart Brushed Stainless Steel Teakettle does everything I need.
I have a couple different sizes of the Zyliss non-stick stainless kitchen knives. They are useful, easy to clean, have their own safety sheath, and stay sharp.
