Okay, I didn't see a similar thread, so here goes. I am (along with many of us) about to buy my first truck camper. I've backpacked, I've car camped, and I've RV'ed (as a kid). But this foray into truck camping (particularly the poptop world), is new. So, we are calling on the wizened ones to help us:
1. What do we need to do/buy before pickup day? I'm assuming turnbuckles and tiedown thingmabobs, but what else?
2. What should we focus on for first stocking of said campers?
3. What should we AVOID buying? Also known as...what's the stuff you've bought but never used?
I know some will vary depending upon the type of camper and types of camping, so feel free to add those items into your narrative...but I gotta think there are some very common themes we can rely upon.
