Pop up camper - Accessories / must haves?

Just picked up a pop-up and I thought I'd put it out to the like minded for ideas on must have items to have on-board. I've already got the kegulator, mirror ball and hookus so let's get that out the way. Maybe just your top 5 would be helpful.

PS- can you store these things verticaly? with a winch or come-along?

Muchos grazzy-az,

chris

Actually, I picked up an '84 Westfalia last year. Here are a few ideas:
Candles (heat + light), Pie Irons, couple wine keys, old nalgenes to fill with boiling water to put in you sleeping bags on cold nights, french press and tea kettle (or percolator), fire starters, lighters and flashlights in every drawer, surf colorado sticker.

I have been a long time paddler (20+ yrs) and just discovered the Westfalia/vanagon utility vehicle a few years back. I now own a Syncro 4 wd model for my primary boating escape pod !

I carry french press and coffee for sure, spare clothes, smoked oysters, corkscrew-bottle opener, mac and cheese, energy bars... all sorts of stuff. After a season of trips under your belt you will begin to whittle it down. Pmail me if you want my excel spreadsheet <grin>

condoms, lots and lots of condoms- once the chicks see your sweet home on wheels you'll need them.

Cool dude...stock up on pasta and all kinds of dry goods...some booze, a good first aid kit, sun screen...plenty of sleeping bags, french press and coffee and I say yes to the condoms and guns. Oh, and make sure you get some spinners.

You can now graduate to the Van Bag:

"Wwwwhaaazzzuuuup, Chica?"

And all the sensuous delights that await therein.
