    I do agree with you on several of the items that you said were a waste of money. After RVing for the last eleven I have tried different products, some with great success, and other were a waste on money. I will however disagree with the generator topic. Generators are a valuable addition to any RV as long as it’s large enough to power the AC. As a dirt bike rider the generator allows us to boondock at locations that have no RV hookups while riding our bikes ( ie motocross tracks, etc) as well as running the AC when we stop for an extended period of time to keep our dogs cool.

    totally agree with all these. we are a year into RVing and we did all those purchases and didnt use any of it, probably because we havent boondocked yet. we would like to but havent yet.

    Hi. This is my first time tuning in to your Channel. I loved how you explained why the items didn’t work for you. I agree with you on the kitchen gadgets. After searching my cupboards, kitchen gadgets were staring me in the face. It’s nice to bring familiar bits of home on the road. Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting list, especially the very last "impulse purchases" for the kitchen. We have found the best thing for us is to hit the thrift and second-hand stores for our kitchen items. The stuff is cheap and if you don't use something you won't get burned on the cost, plus you can always re-donate unwanted items. Plus we aren't worried if something breaks or gets lost. It's a camper – nothing has to match perfectly!

    Thank you. I am a newb with an old motor home that my dad gave me. I don’t know what I’m doing but I love to camp.

    Have you done a video about the solar generator yet or have a link to where you bought it from?

    Great video. I agree about the surge protector being something you should be willing to spend a little money. We got one similar to the one you have for about $200 which seems like a lot but when you have thousands invested into the camper it is not bad. The cheaper ones we looked at were only good for one surge and they were junk. The one we got can protect it several times.

    I disagree with the generator being not worth the investment. I think they can be used quite a bit and still have decent value when you sell it. Some areas also have a lot of state parks without hookups and batteries might not last all weekend.

    What battery/solar inverter is that please? Did you do a review on it and I missed it?!?!?

    Just found your channel..I've done most of these mistakes! LOL What I love is a honest assessment of boon docking not being your thing,,wow how refreshing,,I am not going to climb rocks and hike long trails, just want to get out and explore and admire the areas…using some of my loved things from home,,,not camping stuff.thank you! After I break a bunch of stuff, then I'll get the paper plates.haha

    I'm still hunting for a used Scamp(to renovate). I've started keeping a list of things I THINK I'll need for an RV. I appreciate the common sense info. I'm sure it will save me some money.

    Good video but I disagree with not using or needing the generator. I live in South Florida and have experienced a few weeks without power. Even if you don't use it you have that option of being totally independent.

    Good video. It’s nice to hear what others have experienced and why. That way, I get a lot of reasons why some like and others don’t like certain items. Keep making these.

    Your mistake with the topper was putting it on the crappy RV bed. We got a custom cut 6 inch high density foam bed then put the topper on. Almost better than home!

    Thank you VERY VERY MUCH for doing this video. I enjoyed the content and as a boondocking/outdoorsman, I didn’t even know of HarvestHost. I will be joining. Thank you and you now have a new subscriber.

    Muchas Gracias!

    P.S., Are you looking to sell your generator? How long can you run it with the airconditioner on?

    The first think we discovered in the UK was we didn't need a massive RV as roads were not built for them. So we opted for a Motorhome that cost £5,000 and 16ft long. All gadgets had to have 3 uses. It's very easy to end up buying gadgets that you dont need. For example coffee machines when you can buy coffee bags. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Ps vehicle weight is a big factor in the UK as driving licence is around 3,500kg on most licences. Best wishes from old George and Jane 👍🤠👫🇬🇧

    We purposefully plan to use our memberships first-especially when out on weekends when other campgrounds are scheduled by weekenders months in advance. Nice to have alternates, so everyone can get out for adventures!

    What a cute couple! I love the interactions between the two of you! Your love for each other really shows through. Great information too. I would say, personally that the generator–while maybe not used as much–would be indispensable for extended blackouts. And even though boondocking may not be the preferred mode of camping, it just may become necessary. You never know. However, a less expensive one may have been more appropriate. Hind-sight is always 20/20.

    Can you share the link for the lock you use for your surge protector? I've been searching for a good cable lock for several months now.
