Camping Gear To Add To My Teardrop Trailer [19 Important Gears]

Did you just get a teardrop camping trailer but are not sure how to equip it? Here are our favorite pieces of camping gear to add to your teardrop trailer.

19 Camping Gears To Add To Teardrop Trailer

1. Tarps

Tarps are a versatile accessory. They can be used for a picnic, as a rain shelter, or to create more living space inside your trailer.

For the purposes of this article, we will focus on the idea of using tarps to create living space in your trailer and how it can help you stay organized.  Look here to see what size tarp is right for you.

Some people recommend that you buy separate tarps for inside and outside. We recommend that the tarp you choose for inside your trailer be large enough to extend over your bed.

This will help prevent leaks and keep you dry and warm in case of rain or a passing shower. We like Large heavy-duty tarps of UV treated material that is not flimsy, we recommend 12×14 or larger.

2. Sheets

Sheets are versatile because they are soft and easy to carry around, reducing the amount of space needed to transport them around in your trailer. You can buy sheets in sets of 2, four, or six. They are compatible with most campers.

3. Cups

Cups are used to store food and drinks in the front of your teardrop trailer. We recommend that you buy cups with lids that close tight, not those that have a flap opening that can get caught on things.

We like Stainless steel beverage coolers and child’s plastic cups with handles and lids for storing food and drinks inside your trailer(anything your kids will actually drink).

4. Stove

Most campers have a small propane-powered stove that can be used to cook whatever is in your refrigerator. If you have only one or two burners, you can purchase a backpacking stove that has two burners.

5. Camping Lantern Cover

Keeps the bulb from getting dirt and dirt from getting in the lantern.

6. Fire Extinguisher

Keeps you and your family safe from fire by having a fire extinguisher in your home, car, and/or RV. We recommend that you buy one that is ABC rated. It can be placed in a cup holder or on a table.

7. Flashlight

Keeps you safe from stumbling into things at night and looking for objects in the dark by having a flashlight in your home, car, and/or RV. We recommend that you buy one that is LED lit with batteries that will last for quite a while.

8. Broom and Broom Handle

This item is used to sweep off any dirt or mud from your trailer before you drive away. If you have a lot of mud, you may want to buy a broom holder for your teardrop.

9. Dustpan and Brush

To sweep off any dirt or mud from your trailer.

10. First Aid Kit

Keeps you and your family safe from health issues by having a first aid kit in your home, car, and/or RV.

We recommend that you buy one that is small enough to put in a cup holder or on a table. We like an emergency type of first aid kit with ointments, band-aids, tweezers, nose strips and pain meds.

11. Cleaning Supplies

To clean and sanitize items that are inside your trailer.

12. Waterproof Matches

Keeps you safe from fire by having a waterproof matchbook in your home, car, and/or RV. We recommend that you buy one that is fire-resistant. You can place it in a cup holder or on a table as needed.

13. Whistle

Keeps you safe from people and objects being lost in the dark by having a whistle in your home, car, and/or RV. We recommend that you buy one that is loud. You can place it in a cup holder or on a table as needed.

14. Towel

Keeps you stable and dry by having a towel on your teardrop trailer. We recommend that you buy one with a strap to catch drips from the shower head.

15. Recipes

A good camping recipe book can teach your family how to cook healthy meals, make good snacks, and prepare other useful items they may need while traveling in the woods. You can find these books online or at any local store.

16. Daypack

Keeps your gear organized and helps you hike or camp. We recommend that you buy one that is not too heavy for the day. If you have a larger bag, we recommend storing food in there to help it stay fresh.

We also recommend buying a water filter if you are going on an extended trip into the backwoods. Read more about that in the next section.

17. Water Filter

18. Clothesline

Great for drying wet clothes or towels after a nice shower or cleaning them after dishes are done.

19. Tools

Keeps things organized and clean by having the right tools for the job. We recommend that you buy one of each tool so you always know where it is. Keep your tools in order so you don’t misplace or break them.

We recommend that you buy one type of wrench for everything. You can use them on car transmissions, hood latches, doors, and any other mechanical tasks to keep your stuff safe and in good working condition.
