I just made this list using Scott Brady's example and stuff that pertaines just to me. I've been wanting to make this for a while and I'm excited I finally have it.
Sorry I tried to see if the link would work but this code writer keeps popping up. I just tried copying and paste but since it's an excel document everything was all jumbled. let me know if you know how to attach an excel document on here.
It seems to me to be pretty pathetic that a thread dedicated to lists of supplies for camping is so limited in size that one cannot actually post a two or three page list of text. Actually it is counter to the idea of having a forum on this subject.
I made up some lists on my Android phone in a Notepad app, and then transferred them over to MS Word to print out an laminate.
I keep them in a binder in the rig.
Some of the stuff such as the Eezi-Awn K9 tables, axe, National Luna Weekender 50 Twin fridge/freezer and other misc. items stay in the rig full time.

I had created a separate thread, then I found this, so it's moved
I was planning an epic chuck box build, but my wife (aka the CFO and voice of reason) pointed out that the last couple trips were overly complicated because I took too much gear. The little 2.7L Tacoma does double duty as my urban DD and home improvement hauler, so we have to unload the RTT a bed full of gear at the end of every trip, so an awesome chuck box and drawer system isn't in the cards anytime soon.
The logical solution has been to consolidate some of the gear, and managed to come up with up with a list of non-negotiable times that we need to take on trips. Sadly the discard pile was very tiny.....
Random Stuff in the truck bed:
65L RTIC Cooler - It's big and heavy, but it holds PLENTY of food for a 4 day trip or a 2 day trip if we go with a group.
RTT - This one might be negotiable.....I haven't made up my mind yet. A ground tent would take up less space, but then I'd have all the blankets and pillows crammed into the back of our access cab.
Two folding chairs.
First Aid Kit.
An old duffel bag that we use for clothes and toiletries and wedge in the back of the access cab if it's raining. I need to be sneaky and replace it with some sort of dry bag if the CFO ever lets me go to REI alone.
The "kitchen" action packers seem to take up the most space:
Coleman 2 burner stove - I can fill the tank and have enough white gas for an entire trip. The CFO thinks we should cook all of our meals over a fire, but I'm not going to build a fire when it's 85* out.
Primus ETA Stove and Pot - The piezo only works half of the time, but it's quick for coffee and solo trips.
Cast iron griddle - Eggs, bacon, hot dogs, burgers, all can be cooked on the griddle. Either by fire or Coleman.
2 vintage army surplus mess kits with silverware.
2 plastic Coffee mugs - I usually put bourbon in them, but sometimes coffee.
1L MSR pot for boiling water or cooking canned soup.
Coffee filters and pour over coffee maker. - Who doesn't like coffee?
Roll of aluminum foil - wrapping leftovers or cooking baked potatoes over the fire.
Small non stick skillet - I've used to to sauté veggies or make omelets a couple times. I may replace it with one that has a folding handle.
Dish soap and sponge.
5 gallon water container - Eh...This one sometimes stays at home. Just depends on where we're staying.
An old coffee container with assorted condiments and seasonings.
The Tongula/Spong? It’s a combination tongs and spatula. I saw it at a thrift store and had to have it.
An old kitchen knife that I “sharpened” with an angle grinder. Crazy sharp and the “micro serrations” work surprisingly well on tomatoes.
A second empty action packer that we use when raiding the pantry for non perishable food.
The action packers aren’t the most organized solution, but they are super quick to throw on a shelf in the basement. I’m going to use some leftover scraps of wainscoting to make quick dividers for them.
Well, this hasn't had any additions in awhile. I will add my "kitchen sink" list. This list was made for Baja. If I don't have it … I'm potentially screwed, so I made an extra effort with the list. My process is to start pulling gear the two weeks before an adventure. As I pull junk and pile it in the living room, it gets checked off the list. A second list is printed and taped to the side of the 4Runner, and it gets checked off as I load into the truck. This list is not complete. There are some things that are obvious to me, or they live in truck all the time. Some items have a strike-through on them. That is usually because they are items taken from others, but I left them on because they could be useful to somebody else. So, here we go.

Arrive, set up camp, relax for a bit, do a wood run or 2 into the forest, cut it into convenient lengths (a Svensaw lives in Jeep), clean out the fire pit if it needs it (usually), an e-tool lives in the Jeep, wait for friends to arrive, help them set up camp,
...find out if any one else is coming; start up the Jeep, shift into low range 4wd and go wheeling.
I do not bring a hi-lift jack, having no need for ballast.
I do not bring hatchet, axe nor machette; having no need to chop wood (just push over a 6" to 8"diameter standing dead wood snag and carry it back to camp)
I no longer bring a winch, welder, spare axles and driveshafts; since most of my rowdy/unprepared friends got old.
I, mostly, do not disconnect anti-sway bars nor air down before traveling merely difficult trails.
Keep it simple, keep it light, do your maintenance at home and enjoy the woods/mountains/desert.
This list is much harder to come up with than I had imagined. Not because I don't know what to take, but my situation changes depending on the trip and who is with us. My wife and I tend to be the ones with the camping gear, and while we insist those that camp with us bring their own tent, sleeping arrangements, toiletries, clothes etc... We are more than willing to share a table, and a kitchen with friends, family, passers by...
It kid of boils down to the following groups though.
A tent to sleep and change clothes in. My wife prefers a MUCH larger tent than I do. My favorite is the Coleman SunDome 6 10x12. Her favorite is the Swiss Gear Appenzell 20x10. One thing I like about the Appenzell is if you don't need the shower, I can eliminate the privy shelter by putting the toilet in one of side rooms.
A privy shelter to SS&S in as it were.
A tarp shelter, or screen house to cover the kitchen / dining area and give us a place to escape gentle / medium rains before being driven back into the main tent...
An air mattress or cot and pad.
A sleeping bag and some mexican blankets for an adjustable sleeping system..
Pillows. I just can't sleep without a pillow.
A stove of some sort.
A cooking grate for cooking over a camp fire.
Utensils for makign it work.
Things to expand the art especially for larger groups or longer periods.
A means to protect dry goods, and keep perishables fresh. So a hard plastic tote for dry goods, and a decent cooler with contained ice blocks for fresh.
A toilet of some kind. I use a 5 gallon flushing portable toilet. My wife won't use a cat hole, or a bucket toilet so it's this or a hotel for her...
HVAC / Comfort.
During the coldest, and I mean sub freezing parts of winter, I will use a Coleman white gas heater to stave off freezing and keep the tent warm.
During the hottest parts of the summer, when the overnight lows struggle to get below 80, I use a 5K BTU AC and a small generator to be able to sleep at night, and give us a way to escape the heat if needed during the day.
Health / Medical.
I am on CPAP therapy, so I HAVE to have my CPAP. For short trips without the AC, I power it exclusively with my Everstart jump starter / power pack. It will easily run the CPAP for 2 nights, probably 3 with no problems. I typically recharge or leave on day 3. I have a dedicated CPAP just for travel that goes in the kit as well.
Furnishings. At a minimum like mentioned above, air beds, and then add my Coleman Pack Away camp kitchen, and a pair of folding Quick Chairs.
Lighting. I am old school, so I tend to go with my Coleman Dual fuel lanterns, however I have a couple of the Tac Light Lanterns that I like, although I find the light they produce to be quite glaring. Good if you aren't looking in their direction, annoying if you are...
