My wife and I bought our first RV in the middle of the season last year and only were able to go out on a couple of trips-- one of which had us boondocking overnight in sub-freezing conditions (very late in the season).

But with only two real trips under our belt, we didn't really get a good feel for those awsome RV accessories that would make the experience even more enjoyable. So, I want to know, what items (or even handy tricks) do you use that you simply can't do without?

For that matter, what are some of the items that you thought were really cool when you saw them, but once you tried to use them weren't so cool after all?

So all you experienced RVers out there, lend a word or two of wisdom to us newbies. And help us find those nice toys we need while avoiding those we would only be wasting money on.

Wireless Laptop, you can make reservations ahead of time, one click away, plus anything off the web you need.

GPS has made it nice when you have no idea where you are.

we have satellite radio,which is nice under the awning.

LCD/Plasma TVs, still need to be strapped down or mounted and strapped.

Ice, Fan, folding step stool, cordless vaccum, TOOLBOX, amprobe,.

we've had a bumper pull travel trailer and 2 different 5th wheels one thing that is nice is those mirrors the are mounted or removable to back into the hitch.

http://www.lacrawfish.com/ this website will send crawfish, live, fresh, overnight delivery to basically anywher in the USA, lower 48. We planned ahead for spring break, on the 2nd or 3rd day of our stay our crawfish arrived at the park office, before 12"00 p.m. by 7:00 pm they were boiled and gone.

the reason I mention the crawfish website is there are other websites that provide deliveries, so plan ahead, you don't always have to pack everything.

EBAY.
