I thought I massively over packed for this RV trip but am finding there are plenty of things I should have brought and many I could have left at home. At the 4 week mark, there are too many things that have never been worn and now that we’re heading home, they never will be.
I brought a lot of scarves to change-up my look but seldom wore them. I did wear scarves over my head for hat hair damage control and wind protection.
I only brought one pair of blue jeans. What was I thinking? I wear jeans multiple times a week at home and life is very casual while traveling in an RV. I tried to wear them yesterday but discovered I’ve been eating way too much and there’ll be a diet in my future.
Suede shoes. Yes, we’re parking on paved sites but suede shoes seem like a frivolity for this RV trip. I packed 4 pairs, 3 of which could have stayed home.
Pajamas… I brought one pair. Seriously dumb because it means I have to do laundry often. They take up no space and I should have brought several pairs.
Sneakers… I packed one pair and could have used several… see suede shoes above.
Socks… I packed one pair which is as dumb as the PJ mistake above.
Hats… I packed 6 straw ones and have worn them all. I didn’t bring a warm hat that covers my ears and there have been many times I’d be grateful to have one with me.
Cashmere poncho. Getting worn…all…the…time! I toss it on as a bathrobe to take the chill off my mornings and again in the evening as the sun goes down. I brought the only poncho I own and will be watching for more at the Nordstrom anniversary sale.

T-shirts… I packed 6 and have worn them all. One tank, one short sleeve and one long-sleeved in both black and white.
Eileen Fisher black pants. Wearing all the time. If I’d brought more jeans these might not be so irreplaceable but they’re so comfy and survive commercial washers and dryers.
I wore a tremendous amount of black and white this trip, which made getting dressed very easy. Every trip we take in our trailer, I learn something new and overpacking is not always the answer.
