Holiday camper gifts?

Recommended Posts

So far, under the tree includes replacement firestarter butane lighters.

And, a lithium battery rechargeable vacuum to help collect the hair of our adorable, but super shedding tiny camping dog...

Often, the camper gets more gifts than either of us...

On the Ollie wish list is a DC Danfoss compressor refrigerator. that also may be under the tree.

What's on your Ollie's list?

What’s on your Ollie’s list?

 

We get our Ollie, our first camper, in January or February so Santa is delivering an entire "sleigh" (collapsible wagon) filled with newbie goodies. So far Santa is bringing:  Disposable Gloves, X-Chocks, Airtight Pet Food Container, Kaito Emergency Radio, Collapsible Silicone Kettle, Telescopic Garden Rake, Adjustable Broom and Dustpan, & 5 Gallon Collapsible Water Carrier.

 

"Toy" suggestions greatly appreciated. I'm sure there is room for more.

What's on our list? Hahahahhhh :)

 

Sunshine first and soon hopefully so I can fix the leaks from lights outside, needs to be 70°+ so we're heading to Arizona, kinda taking the long way being we're in Southern Oregon on the coast for a couple more days but the waves are supposed to be huge tomorrow :)

 

So far Santa has brought me Butyl Tape, 3M-4000 sealant, Captain Tully's Crack Sealer, a Stanley Black socket set, new bolts for the bumper, bathroom Caulk, and I'm hoping for a new fan switch for the bathroom, more magnets for the drawers, a chamfering bit for the light screws and a Hot Buttered Rum :)

I too have a Kaito weather alert radio on that list along with: a five gallon Solar shower bag, and LED lights for the basement.

 

Got an early present a couple of days ago of LED lights for the bed of the truck - I slaved them off the two lights that can stock in the truck bed and they work great.

 

ShallowGal - be careful of that 5 gallon water bag.  I've never had one that didn't leak after a short period of time.  Primarily these leaks occur from the corners where the bag gets folded over and over.  If you have the room to store it, I think that something like this makes better long term sense: https://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Products-Hydroller-Wheeled-Container/dp/B001QC78GK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511965013&sr=8-1&keywords=8+gallon+water+container

These water containers will likely outlast me.  We always carry two along with up to four of the matching fuel containers.

The military water containers definitely win when it comes to looks! The wheeled Hydroller is a good idea. The thought of schlepping 40+ pounds of water was not well thought out on my part.

We dropped our trailer off at the factory this afternoon for some Christmas upgrades. Dexter EZ Flex, fresh tank fix and accumulator, AC easy start and some minor maintenance. Christmas for us is at the Ryman Auditorium tomorrow night for the Vince Gill/Amy Grant Christmas show. Will head home Friday. Mike

Well my Xmas starts tomorrow when I pick up my new Oliver II !  The day of reckoning has arrived.  The only thing that has bothered me reading thru all these month the various posts is the water issue that Reed Lukens has experienced. Hope I don't have that happen to me as I would be an unhappy and soggy camper  . I have a loaded Ford F150 loaded with new toys and a lot of my tent camping stuff that I will try to fit in the Ollie.  My plan is to head south to Gunderson State park for a few days and then go to Gulf Shores, and make my way up to North Georgia. That should let me do a nice inaugural run before the temperatures come tumbling down

Corcomi - You are one lucky human.  First you get you Oliver - CONGRATULATIONS!  Second you get to meet Mike and Carol while you are there - really nice people (but don't tell them I told you so).  Third - you get to take a trip.  I understand that by the middle of next week temps are supposed to take a dive here in the mid-south (high of 39 is forecast for Wednesday, December 6th).

 

Be sure to take a bunch of pictures and give us a report.
