Before you jump in the car, there are a few things that you should double, even triple check to make sure are in the car with you, camping gear is essential for a good trip. If you are planning on cooking, and aren’t sure if there are fire rings with grates, consider bringing along a double burner stove, but make sure you pack the right type of gas to get your burners going! Alternatively most camper trailers these-days come with a kitchen assembly complete with a stove built in which could shorten your packing list and insure those essentials are never forgotten. Bring along pots or pans, eating utensils, and over course plates to eat off.
