When I used to show, we took a small Smokey Joe grill with us, hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, and if we were doing breakfast at the show grounds, English muffins, egg beaters, cheese and ham. We used a cast iron pan over the Smokey Joe to do the breakfast stuff and either made omelettes or breakfast sandwiches. For lunches we did ham and cheese sandwiches, left over hamburgers or hot dogs, or just ate show grounds food. Just an idea of what we used to do.

But I agree with stocking the trailer with plates, cups, silverware, etc.

Cocktails.... Personally, juices and vodka. Sodas and whiskey. Beer. But anything your group likes should be easy to conjure up.

Have you pulled a trailer that big before and have some practice? I am only asking out of curiosity, not to be rude or is a huge responsibility to have a rig this big, plus horses and then your truck. What does your wife show?

-I know you just bought a kitchen on wheels but take an outdoor camping grill for things that spatter when fried (Bacon, eggs, hamburger, etc.). Cleaning up after frying something means scrubbing your living area from end to end! Here's the thing, if you don't get it good and clean you'll be smelling past meals inside the trailer for a long time and so will the mice. Lingering food odors are the same as ringing a dinner bell to mice.

-Did you get an awning on your trailer? If not get one of those portable ones for sitting outside under. Sitting around inside often gets cramped so the ability to move outside is nice.

-With above, chairs/tables for using outside. Trailer tip, clean out the back as soon as you arrive and let it air. Now if it's windy or wet you still have a place to hang out with more room than your living area. I know some people who camp that way actually instead of hauling around a live in trailer, camper or tent.

When we used to take an RV to shows I would do quite a bit of pre-prepping for our meals. I'd make stews, spaghetti sauce, soups and pre-cook potatoes and rice and put them into storage containers. That way, when it came time to eat, I'd be able to whip up dinner in a few minutes rather than having to cook from scratch. I also made several gallons of tea, put in lots of bottled water (we lived in the desert), and we did eggs, sausage and pancakes for breakfast. Lunch was catch as catch can, either sandwiches or we'd buy at the show grounds $$$$$. So, yep, lots of money is a good idea. You always seem to need a piece of tack or....maybe a new horse to fill the last slot on the trailer.
