Making a list & checking it twice

When we bought the Springdale trailer, the sales professional at ArrKann Trailer and RV in Edmonton, Alberta gave us a camping list. He said that he made the list for his family so they wouldn’t forget anything. I must say we found the list great as well. I have updated the list and modified it to my family’s needs and thought you may enjoy it as well.
