Trailer Travel Packing List

This page includes some of the things we’ve bought for our trailer travels and there are some affiliate links. For more information please read our Disclaimer.

People asked how similar our trailer packing list is to our nomad packing list, which we still use whenever we travel by plane or car to stay in an Airbnb. The answer is, our nomad and trailer packing lists are very different!

When we stay in an Airbnb we pack very light and we always pick up some of the things we need after we arrive, especially food. Some things we take to an Airbnb aren’t on our list for trailer travel, like suitcases and passport pouches. And there are tons of things we need for trailer travel that we don’t take to Airbnb’s like a sleeping bag, our own pots and pans, tools, and toilet paper. And we are very glad there are a few things we bought for our nomad travels that we use in our trailer like packing cubes, travels towels, and ceramic knives.

One thing’s clear, our trailer travels require a lot of gear, bedding, kitchen and bathroom supplies, and we really need this packing list to keep us organized!

This is Bessie Basecamp, our Airstream travel trailer!
