Good idea on the flat tire tools. They don't come with a lug wrench and your tow vehicle's wrench likely won't fit. Walmart sells a "gorilla wrench" which is an expanding helper bar with 2 - 2 way sockets fits everything.

Also, the lugnuts will loosen right away as you cut their own seat by retightening. So check them right away and after 10-20 miles or so.

Electric drill with attachments to raise and lower the sabilizing jacks and do other drill/driver stuff.

Bring more white water hoses incase your water supply is far away. A Y connector can be very handy. I use an elbow bend to attach the hose to the camper so the hose doesn't put as much weight on the connector.

A standard 50' or even 100' extension chord has proven to be very handy.

Get a piece of "fake green grass" to put at the entrance of the RV so you have a place to step down to without hitting mud & dirt.

And a Trex-250 with supplies tucked under the couch

Hoot you could tow a trailer with lots of heli parts behind a motorhome Naw leave that up to me

A good blender and lots of ice is always good
A small saw to cut off those nasty low branches
2X6's for the under the jacks (or tires)

Glad to hear you are getting overnight accomodations!

Generator (if not built in). Excellent for running the trailer, and charging batteries (trailer and RC)

EzUp for the flight line, with table and chairs

Spare parts, basic tools, soldering iron (its nice to be able to make repairs and have your primary heli flying again the next day should you crash it.)

Definitely second the extra hoses and extension cords - especially important for longer events (even with 80gal water tanks, I still needed to take on water while at Joe Nall).

Wheel chocks and level blocks for those hilly sites

And most important - a Checklist! It sucks driving for 8 hours for a three day event, only to find you forgot something essential at home! I had a checklist for the RV, RC trailer, flight equipment and personal stuff. Never forgot a thing to date (knock on wood!)

We had a 38' class A with all the amenities in the past, but sold it when we weren't using it as much when the kids got older. So I got a 20' trailer just to use for fly ins. The only real essentials I required were air conditioning, shower with hot and cold water, refig, microwave, and a generator. The rest the Class A had was pure icing (corona counters, surround sound entertainment system, residential head, lots of storage everywhere, automatic hydraulic leveling, three slide outs, outside TV & shower, etc). I do miss the driving vs towing though. We are again looking a Class A or C now that the kids are off to college and we'll have more time to travel ourselves.

I wish I had a lawn mower at Ircha last year. It woulda been nice to walk to the flight line on short grass along with having the grass cut in the tent area.

Maybe I'll bring one this year and rent my cutting services out for $10 a pop.
