I have been unloading our almost nine year old AF1150 as we are trading it in.

Over 13 large totes of stuff. And that is not including the blankets, backrests, pillows, three closets and two hampers worth of clothes, the longer stuff like an ax, broom, umbrellas and hiking poles. Nor does this include the food from either the shelfs or the refrigerator.

Amazing. Add in the stuff in the crew cab truck and it is no wonder we weigh so much.

Not a truck camper, but a smaller TT that we had from 2003 to 2019 and it had gathered a lot of stuff over the years! In the end, we really only had to deal with food and dirty clothes between trips which was nice.

Took almost 2 days to clear it out and clean before we traded it in for the new Rockwood..

Had so much stuff that we had forgotten about! Oh well, new start with the new one and it's already stuffed!

I like it that way.

Yes, you gather a lot of stuff over the years..

That's why I laugh at the newbies that say they "pack light" and don't haul any water or other stuff... ha, ha...

Give it a few years... You'll all have all the stuff loaded up over time!

I am even seeing 'tent' campers taking full hookup sites and plugging in, using the water like it was endless! Mini fridges and AC units are becoming more and more seen in the tents! So there you go! Mitch

Not much really since I unpack after every trip. I like to have just the necessities like clothes, some cooking ware, emergency supplies and equipment, some tools, and whatever I’m bringing for fishing or hiking or doing geology fieldwork (usually all of the above). Even so, it can get sort of crowded, so I always try to figure out what I could have left home for next time!

DW sorting through the stuff we took out of the trailer when we sold it....not including BBQ, chairs, blue tote, water carriers, tool boxes, etc etc.

Significantly less storage in this Lance 811 than we had in our 34' Terry Quantum.

Wow, that is a lot of stuff.

We pack and unpack for every trip, and clean afterwards. Everything is loaded just for that specific trip. We really only carry the necessities. Food is planned and measured out in advance.

Just a few clean blankets, towels, backpacks, some toiletries, plus tools, some emergency stuff, and some cards and such always stay in the TC.
All food and clothing always come out. We are not "accumulators".

We have the necessary kitchen items. 3 pants, 6 of everything else. There's always canned foods then we reload everything when we head out. Fishing stuff, chairs, cameras. I try to apply two rules. KISS and GIGO.
