Packing for an RV

My sisters in law went shopping today to get food for our trip and spent $600. Crazy, and it's not like we're gone that long. 4 days, tomorrow through Monday afternoon. That did include some sleeping bags, a shade shelter, maybe a few misc things, but a lot of food. I'm worried it won't fit in the RV. However we have 9 people, 4 days, that's 100+ meals, so maybe that's not so bad.

Tonight I pulled out a bunch of stuff and set it downstairs, ready to go in the am. The kids and I packed some bags with 4 changes of clothes, and we'll need to get toothbrushes and stuff in the morning ready to go.

But how much do we need to pack? It's a little confusing. This is our first RV trip, and while we should have lots of storage, it feels different from camping. Like we should need less stuff, but who knows. It's going to be interesting at the least.

Tia will get the RV in the morning, we'll load up, load up horses in the trailer and then it's a caravan down to the Royal Gorge area where we'll be staying in Howard, CO.

I'm looking forward to it. It's a bit of a test to see how we do in an RV. Tia and I have talked of touring with one (likely a 5th wheel horse trailer) when the kids are gone, and this will give us a taste of what it's like.
