    Look in Jim's shop for the motor home check list, full of information.

    Thanks PaulyP. I will have a look.
    I had seen some very good spreadsheets on some blogs previously where funsters had recorded expenses, where they stayed and also inventory lists, and unfortunately I can't find the blogs again.

    Now back in Sarfend for a couple of months.
    All someone else's inventory list will do for you is give you even more "necessary" things to add to your list and the next question you'll be asking here is "Please recommend a MH with a bigger garage. :)

    Do you mean a check list to go through before you set of on a trip or a list of things you have bought for your van with their costs?

    If it is the former I just use a WORD document that I leave on the desktop that I add to whenever I have forgotten something. I could easily transfer it to an EXCEL sheet for you if you wanted. Everyone is different in what they need/want, so just go through a theoretical trip and record what you will need when you set off, arrive at ferry or site, set-up, make a meal, have a drink, go to bed, get up etc etc.

    Sorry about the photo orientation, but here's mine. Couldn't photograph every page!!

    It's a cross between a pre-flight checklist and an ambulance equipment style checklist.

    It starts with an exterior 'walk-around' (ensuring fanlights closed, TV aerial down, tyres ok) etc etc etc. Then cab, then hab area and finishes in the loo.

    I just sat in the van, brainstormed the equipment and systems, then arranged it all in a logical sequence. Any new items are added using a permanent marker, then typed and laminated properly when I amend the inventory.
