Hello. My family of 5 just purchased a 2014 Kodiak Express 283BHSL. This is our first camper and it has been about 11 years since my husband & I camped. We have boys 14 & 8 and a 12 year old daughter. Actually kids don't know we have actually purchased yet. They did know we were looking and today we plan to make a trip to Camping World in Indy. My first question is what should we be looking for there that we can't get at big box stores?
We also have Bass Pro & Cabela's points accumulating, along with an Amazon wish list so plan to order some online from them as well. Christmas this year for the kids will be camping items that the whole family needs and they're okay with that. Things like their own camper bedding and a TV for their bunkhouse.
We'd like to take the camper out for the first time next weekend and just want to get some bare bones items to get started. Some things I think we need to have from the get-go are an outdoor rug & mattress covers for beds. What other things would be must haves for our first weekend out & things that we should pick up at Camping World that aren't available elsewhere.
Thanks. I am sure this is the first of my many questions.
