New Micro Minnie owner question

Hi everyone
We bought ourselves an awesome Christmas present of a new Micro Minnie and canít wait for spring.
Plan on spending the winter shopping to outfit her. As this is our first RV we are looking for some advice on what we need to buy for it. Have already bought a couple of things that while they may be nice we have found out they are not essential so we are looking for guidance from those who are more experienced as to what we should get. Any advice would be very appreciated.
Thanks

Well, let me say welcome but also caution on buying things as that is an area where we all live differently , so what fits me may not fit you! And experience is about the only way to find what fits you!

A place to start for me is the safety items like a TPMS as I will no longer go without knowing BEFORE a tire blows out!
Saving several hundred dollars by not buying TPMS is betting thoughsands of dollars and possibly your life against a few hundred!
A blown out tire that comes out through the side panel or wraps up the brake line, etc underneath gets very hard to solve while on a trip as well as super expensive to repair!

Currently getting into a repair for RV is just not going to happen without totally ruining the trip! Think at least three weeks, mimimum?

Welcome!

The only essential items for your travel trailer, besides an adequate tow vehicle and hitch (anti-sway & weight distribution preferred), are sewer dump equipment, RV water hose, and a quality surge protector and power plug converters called “Dog Bones” in RV lingo. If you plan to camp without “shore power” you’ll need a quiet generator to refresh batteries and power AC appliances.

There are dozens of things that you’ll want to have or would like to have but the very best way to know about these things for you is to get out there and go camping.

PS. I am a staff member here so I moved your post out of that other tread and into its own thread. You’ll find it’s always best to start a new thread for any new topic, question or introduction.

You got your basic essentials and then your favorite accessories that become essential. Mine is the 2 burner Camp Chef and a griddle.
