I’m often asked by folks contemplating a full-time RV lifestyle “What tools do you carry?” The answer has certainly changed over the years as I’ve learned what I need and don’t need. As we have added more items to the rig such as solar panels and extra batteries I’ve had to back off on my tool stash to prevent overloading the trailer. We are now closing in on six years of full-time RV life. The years have taught me what the essential tools are. Below you’ll find my tools listed by category and video footage of the collection.
