RV Checklists

Mark Polk, my favorite RV guru, offers a handy dandy e-book of checklists titled, oddly enough, "The Original Checklists for RVers." If you're like me, first of all God help you. But if you're like me, then you too need a checklist for winterizing, spring cleaning, packing, etc.

This e-book, which is series of pdf pages you download after making the $12.95 purchase, is a 4th edition electronic E-book with 90 pages consisting of 40 RV Checklists covering all aspects of RVing.

Mark Polk, of RV Education 101 fame (website, Facebook, books, dvds), has compiled all the checklists an RVer will ever need, all in one place. Applicable for pop-ups, travel trailers, fifth wheels and motorhomes, to use from the time you purchase your RV until you store it for winter and everything in between.

It includes checklists for Pre-delivery Inspections, Basic Inventory, Tools & Supplies, Getting There Safely, Campground Set-up, Pre-Trip, Home Security, Dinghy Towing, Essential Items, Nice to Have Items, Traveling with Pets, Awning Operation, Winterizing & De-winterizing your RV, Storing your RV, Battery Testing Chart, Spring Prep, and much more.

I consider this a must-have for every RVer. And, of course, take Mark's checklists and use them as a basis to customize your own checklist. Because the little yapping dog of yours might need a special dog food that Mark probably doesn't know about.

My family (wife and three kids, sometimes the dog) and I have been RV campers since 2007. We own a 2000 Trail-Lite B22 Bantam hybrid, our tow vehicle is a 2006 Trailblazer LT EXT (5.3 V8 with 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio), and our setup includes the Equalizer sway controller. Looking to upgrade the camper in the near future, but until then we get out 2-3 times a month in season.
