We even keep an old set of clothes in it in case something happens (fire, earthquake, I go crazy and run off with the teardrop to get away from it all). That way I'd have a change of clothes while I wash the set off my back.

I have dedicated bedding for the tear, but I bring it in and wash it after each trip (both of them). I store it inside until the next trip.

I like to have everything ready to go. The bed is made, towels are in their cabinet. The galley is also ready, with the one exception being a small skillet that I use for pancakes. It's my favorite so it goes back and forth between the trailer and the kitchen. I like to just add food and clothes and away we go!

Now if I can just get Lucas (my 13 year old son and camping buddy) to quit taking so much stuff along!

Everything gets aired out or cleaned and put back in for the next trip.

Don't have a teardrop but in my fifthwheel and camper I leave everything in it just think if it like a 2nd home (or 3rd). That way hopefully I don't forget anything. The only thing I need to do is load up clothes and food.

I always like to have clean bedding and pillow case each time I go. :thumbsup:

Think I'll leave mine in the trailer, because while parked at home it will serve as a PMS shelter.(all girls in my house) :lol: :lol:

for now our trailer is not air tight so we pull in everything but the sheet on the mattress to keep it somewhat clean.

After we get it more atuned to normal life we will keep it in the trailer the pillows will be in plastic bags and the sheets and pillow covers will not be changed untill we are ready to go on a new trip.

So our sleep will be like sleeping in a motel with clean sheets.

Postby cs_whypt2 » Wed Aug 06, 2008 7:16 pm guys are making me feel like a slacker.
The bedding stays in the trailer. I found pillows upstairs that are now the tear pillows. Same as old bedding and an old camping mattress, and then there was the random piece of foam my dad found and the billion sleeping bags we have...
Yeah, my dad saves EVERYTHING so my mom would prefer that it all stay out in my teardrop. She can not wait until I have the kitchen box done...then that means even more stuff will be out of the house.
And as for being a slacker? I don't wash that stuff! I will wait until camping season is over, look at it, and what ever looks dirty will get washed, and the rest will be fine for winter camping.
