Chuckling Allowed Regarding RV Tools & Supplies

I so enjoy your expertise and appreciate you sharing it with so many of us. As I look at the listings of tools and supplies you suggest we carry in our RVs, I have to chuckle. These things can only apply to those with large RVs. I travel in a 21-foot Rialta that has very little storage, and a trunk about the size of a large duffel bag. Once my leveling blocks, water hose, your RV repair and maintenance book and a basic tool kit are in there, I am not only out of room, but pushing my weight limit. What is best for those of us to carry that have limited storage and weight capacity and that boon dock?Beth B., (SLC, UT) 

I hear you Beth! Not your actual chuckling, but I get your drift. You’ll have to look at what room you actually have and consider the types of maintenance you’ll likely be willing to attempt yourself, and then simply pare down the listing to just what you might need at that level. Believe it or not, my traveling set of tools can fit into a well-packed, briefcase-sized satchel. All my supplies fit into a standard milk crate. One suggestion is to only carry the sizes of certain tools rather than, say a complete set of end wrenches. But you should be able to reduce the size and weight of the load successfully, at least enough to keep from laughing!
