White lube for the hitch, and a trailer to carry all that stuff.

With duct tape what more do you need? Looks like a very comprehensive list.

There's always something that you miss but there's always a Walmart for those little things.

Have a great pickup trip.

You seem to have included a lot. I would include an air pump/small air compressor, multi bit screw driver, dirty laundry bag and a few zap straps.

June 14th Pickup Checklist

We take a few of the smaller Dollar Store dish pans. They are the handiest things, we put one in the sink for washing dishes in as they fit pretty good and need less water to fill, another is put beside the sink for rinsing. They are also great for carrying things around in.

I think I can get MT trailer tags beforehand and put them on after ETI takes the trailer to Sumas. Don't know about Nebraska.

Wow, that's a lot of stuff. Are you going on the road for awhile after orientation/pick up, or just pulling home?

thanks, we pickup on the 8th of June, and this list looks like what I've been doing, but had not written it down yet. I'll include the VISA card to this list. We are also taking some of the small plastic baskets that I figure will hold lots of small stuff tight in small spaces. We found them very handy on the boat. Another item I used a lot in cooking was a metal plate designed to let items simmer on the rip-roaring gas stoves.
