A great recomendation came in from one of our readers regarding Camping and RV Checklists. In particular he was surprised that a google search did not yield him an excel spreadsheet version that he could update and make his own. So I thought I would put a collection of the best RV checklists available today and give people a one stop directory of great RV checklists, including that illusive EXCEL version. People may want more than the typical paper checklist and thats what this post is all about. Bringing technology to the RV Checklist.
Excel Spreadsheets RV Checklists:
Great thing about excel versions is you can edit them to your liking. Remove, add, send to friends etc. Its the preferred method of checklist for the Internet/Smartphone generation. I was able to locate two great options below.
- Camping / RV Checklist - This link will take you to Box.net for the download. This is the more thorough of the 2 excel spreadsheet options. It rivals any on this list as it probably covers everything you need plus a few extras. If for some reason something is missing just update it!
- Home Owners and Trades Resource Center RV Checklist - This is a direct download link. Clicking on it will immediately download the spreadsheet. This a very simple 1-2 page option that you can quickly customize to your liking. You can visit the HTRC website to get the RV checklist as well.
