I have bought things at campground stores, but try to avoid them due to the much higher cost. I would recommend first looking at things that won't spoil such as rv supplies, toilet paper, hoses and such. These may sit on the shelf for a while, but someone will need them someday. Just watch out for things that may be replaced by technology such as maps (replaced by gps) and coaxial cable (replaced by wi-fi and intrnet).

Next thing would be perishable food. Very tricky category because you never know what people will want. I would start small with a few items and see what you customers ask for. On the trip we're on right now, we bought Orange juice at the store since we ran out.

Some things that might be useful would be cooking utensils, laundry soap, and maybe even towels.
