Suggested Packing List

Whether you’re headed to the mountains or the canyons, below are the things you’ll need to bring.


Due to unpredictable weather, make sure to pack warm clothes that you can layer. The evenings can be cool, even during the summer. Below are the clothes we suggest:

  • Sweatshirts/Sweaters/Fleeces
  • Long Pants/Sweatpants
  • Tennis Shoes
  • Hiking Boots
  • Rain Gear

  • Sleeping Bags
  • Pillows
  • Blankets/Comforters
  • Bedding/Linens

After decades in the wilderness, we’ve developed this list of convenient camping supplies. We suggest bringing the following items on your vacation:

  • Ice chest for food storage
  • Standard water hose to get clean water from a spigot

Important Things to Consider Before Leaving

Some of what you need to pack depends on what amenities your campground has. Many private campgrounds offer electrical hookups, restrooms, and even shower facilities. Some of our campers and trailers have toilets, while others do not. If you reserve a camper without a restroom, make sure that your campground has them. If you’re camping in the wilderness or in a rustic site that doesn’t have public bathrooms, you may want to buy a small Porta-Potty to take with you.

Our units come with fully-charged, deep-cycle batteries and a full propane tank to power the lights and furnace. Depending on how much you use the furnace, you may want to rent a generator or choose a facility with electrical hookups.
