I'm with Duck. I carry perhaps too many tools, but they serve me well. I've needed them myself more than once. (Knock on formica, I've never had to be towed.) My ratio of using them to help others versus help myself out of a jam hovers probably around 6:1 in favor of others.

You see---THIS, and others like it deserve a "Like" button.

Going to add some traction mats and tow strap to our emergency road gear list.

We are in Florida area where the ground gets "swampy" at times. Went to a festival yesterday and the guy parking us tried to put us in the middle of a grass lot that looked ok but wasn't. Area did not look bad or would not have pulled in. Was all grass but when got out of the van realized ground was slick and saturated. Guy directing us told me to stop in the middle of the field which was a mistake. Van would not go forward or reverse without slipping the tires and start digging a whole. Tried without traction control also with no luck. Also tried rocking etc. but no success. These vans even though front wheel drive are heavy and not good if you get stopped in any kind of muddy/slick areas.
With some help of workers at the festival and finally a jeep and tow strap, were able to get unstuck but these vans are not going to simply be pushed out of muddy/slick/sandy areas. Happy to not have to call a tow truck and pay a big bill.

Nice- tow strap is kept in ALL my vehicles. I live in VT and have used it many times- never for me tho... That tool bag fits in my car and RV, and goes back and forth depending on which one I am using.
I carry for others as much as myself. One time, a Rialta owner had his chassis battery die (After he gave a clinic on batteries!) and I had my jumper with me- lucky for him... he was embarrassed to say the least.

The Promaster is not good on soft ground, but many RVs aren't either- lotta weight. AWD would be nice tho. RWD would be ok too. All that weight is not over the drive wheels.

We just finished a 8,000 mile trip from Cape Cod through Great Lakes, Missourri, Texas, New Mexico, Moab, Tahoe, Yosemitte, Shasta, Oregon, Down the Pacific NW Coast from Colubia River, Oregon, California and home in the Tellaro20L. No spare, made me nervous on cliff hanger roads. Brought too many tools (your list is great). Interested in your tire mount. I wouldnt trust the Thule Bike rack. I mounted a small tool box on that. I have already put on new tires with nobby tread, summo coils (front and rear) and Bilstein shocks. Handles great now. Can you tell me more about your tire mount?

Search posts by me about the spare, but essentially:

I think the tool kit is perfect- have used for others more than me...but I like having it around.

The spare is great to have- link below. As for the bike rack- you need to pull it off and see if Thor used adhesive- if you can just pop those crossbars off, then it's not glued as the manual states. I used Sikaflex 252 and re-installed mine, and now it's solid. Also hides all the scratches from no glue being used...be sure to read the manual. If you do not have, PM me for a copy.
70# max on the bike rack I think. Without the adhesive, it will destroy your rear door in a few years. Rubbed the paint badly on mine, but adhesive is now protecting it.

Thor evidently doesn't read manuals. Dealer sure didn't after he showed me how NOT to extend the awning... (sent all the way out w/o legs down at 1m)

Below is spare mount with plate holder, and also pic showing my box on the bike rack, Yakima Exo w/ sewer tube (shortened to fit) attached, and spare tire.

Landed Gear spare for Promaster- be sure to pick the one for your model year. Also right hand ones if you dump the bike rack (and no damage)
I am unable to have my 'top shelf' any more, sadly... price to pay for the spare being in a better spot. PM me for a pdf I made to install the spare carrier.

I use the maestro feature to get gauge readings and TPI pressure. See attached. I also installed seperate 12 inch n water line for toillete flush and cold water when Tellaro is winterized and I am traveling from my cold weather climate to warmer climate.
