Default Caravan inventory

Hello all.

Am I right in thinking that I have previously seen somewhere on this site an inventory of items needed when setting up a static caravan for the first time? If I have, perhaps someone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction.

Thanks in anticipation.

I cannot provide a link to such a list, although I suspect that one of the helpful folk on here will have compiled one and it will be there somewhere.
For us, working without a list, we started with the logic of what do we need that we do not want to carry backwards and forwards every trip.
With this in mind we started with bulky bedding( duvets & pillows), pots & pans & cutlery.
As we do our clothes washing at home not at the ‘van a couple of laundry bags, together with other easily movable containers ( foldable crates) have become key parts of our kit. Whilst clothes go into the bags when worn during a stay the crates are easily packed and clean clothes for the next trip go into them at home. This assists for quick loading and unloading of our car for going back and forth. Added to these are a cool box ( or bag ) for any milk, butter, or other foodstuffs.
After this the next thing was cleaning materials.
And the last essential was entertainment ( TV or whatever ).
I think it is a case of looking round your home and deciding what is there that you want at your ‘van but don’t want to haul back & forth all the time. This will help you to create your own personalised list. You don’t have to get it all at once but if you’ve got those essentials the rest can be got as you go along.

This is the inventory list I posted in 2014 and again in 2016. It's not a complete list but a good start of what you need.
Still loving my caravan !!
