The Camco vent insulator will not work in the Escapes, made for thicker ceiling and recessed vents. I have one in the garage collecting dust. The velcro tape Glenn mentioned is vip safety measure.

Something else to include is a small assortment of tools, fuses, duct tape, etc. for those unexpected maintenance needs. I've found a small plastic tackle box can hold a multitude of miscellaneous items.

There are some acrylic ones that work just fine, as they don't absorb odours at all. We have some stainless ones that work good, but mostly I used a good glazed ceramic tumbler. It also works great for coffee, beer and cocktails. It comes with a silicon lid and a neoprene sleeve to keep coffee warm.

I'm just as shocked. I thought that I was the only low brow who loved Timmie's coffee. Even better now with the roll up the rim contest on

Gee, I'm beginning to get the impression that this forum is heavy with a bunch of wine and coffee snobs!
Next thing, someone will be saying it's not OK to drink wine from a screw capped bottle which is disguised within a brown paper bag, or to put a pinch of instant coffee between the cheek and the gum!!!

It also doesn't include items we shipped to ETI to be installed during our build, like the 4G antenna, Sleek Cradle, etc. Following the advice of several veteran campers, we only bought things we knew we would need or use. Several dozen that were on the "wish list" were later deleted.

And no, there is no ATV or Sailboat on the list.

Might also be wise to get a 25-foot 30amp extension cord and a second drinking water hose as on rare occasions they may be needed. Not all campground connections are where they should be and Wally World or Camping World may not be conveniently located.

Good list, the part numbers and such will help those starting out.

I do agree with Jim B in suggesting that those just starting out should get the basics and that which they know they need and add things as you go. We've always kept a shopping list. Much depends on your style of camping, are you a traveler or a sit in one spot camper.

When on the road, and wanting a quick coffee, I will stop at Snortin' Tim Horton's for a quick cup. Though not wildly flavoured, it is not terrible either. At least the beans are not overroasted like Charbucks. Plus, I can get a toasted bagel with cream cheese there. Never, never any of their gross doughnuts though, yuck!

There are some great coffee shops out there, but they are few and far between, and you usually have to know of them, as they are rarely along the major thoroughfares.
