You may just have acquired more stuff in the last few days, than we carry in our trailer year round.

Yeah, it looks like more than it is Jim. We didn't have any camping gear (except for a few old ratty items from our tenting days) so we are pretty much starting from scratch. Everything has a purpose and we didn't get anything we wouldn't use. It's mostly things for leveling, hooking up, sitting, washing dishes, etc.

Didn't I see an ATV and a sailboat in that bin too?

This made laugh aloud! Don't know about Robert, but pretty sure I have recently purchased a few 'white elephants' for my trailer!

Robert you are going to totally love that CGEAR Mat!
Sand filters thru it, it dries almost instantaneously, and is super light weight and folds up very compactly.

You caught me. The sailboat is on the bottom.

FYI, based on your review, we also ordered the Spitfire 180 grill with the low pressure regulator. We had it shipped directly to ETI rather than pay international shipping and then have to haul it up there.

So you see Jim, you're not entirely guiltless in this matter.

Robert, if you get a chance can you up a quick "highlights" list that help other first timers in their shopping? I never heard of the cgear mat before, for example.

Edit... No cgear on amazon.ca. "Shakes fist"

Gosh, I am so sorry for leading you astray.

Just imagining the cash I would have if Dickinson kicked back just $10 for every Spitfire they sold due to my review.

We should try and have a thread next winter to list all the stuff we bought for the trailer but haven't used. I'll cull it down when I reload this spring, or maybe summer the way the snow is piling up.

We do this every year, as stuff "sneaks" in somehow, but have had to remove less in recent years. Basically, if it didn't get used over the year, out it comes. Lots of stuff was in there with good intentions to use, but it just never happened, and we can always do just fine without it then.
