The ultimate tent-trailer camping list

It's crazy the amount of stuff we bring to camping to ultimately use the same things over and over. My list gets bigger each year, with an "WHAT IF" ...
WHAT IF we have an accident,
WHAT IF it rained all weekend,
WHAT IF we don't have enough food,
WHAT IF we lost our dog (this happened to my brother RIP Bagherra) ...

I went from a list of a young couple without children to an elephantastic list (I invented that word!). My list is now composed of about 155 items. And that doesn't include food or clothing! I copy something from one of my previous publication: "Ironically it is easier to get organize with two children than being a childless couple in the previous years."

Of course the tent-trailer has something to do with all that, but you can adapt this list for your vacation with a single tent or a caravan. Just strike out the non-desired sections and add your personal items. You will find a printable list at the end of the publication. Did I miss something?
