So after building a shelf in the cargo area, and looking at how much "junk" I carry with me, I thought this would be an interesting topic. What do you carry with you on your rig?
Russian Military Shovel
Paramedic bag (wound dressings, gloves, IV stuff, some meds, sutures)
Bug out pack (matches, space blanket, bandaids, water, foldable water bag...)
Winch bag (tree saver, gloves, snatch block, pad, extra shackles)
Emergency car kit (Orange triangle, small 12v compressor, flashlight, slime)
Camping toilet paper
High Viability Jacket (yellow w/ reflective stripes)
Sharpie and paper pad
Small tool box (common size sockets, pliers, cutters, assorted screw drivers)
100' 550 paracord
...I think that is it...?
That panel you have your spare sitting on can hold quite a few things under it. I fit my winch kit, winch snatch block, shovel, machete, tow rope plus some other stuff. First aid I keep behind the fold down seat for quick access. It's a good area for quick access items.
I tried the cooler in the camper trailer and it didn't work for us. (I have a jeep extreme trailer). Access to the cooler on long trips was better if it was in the jeep. I've had the ARB, it's good on electric, but bad on price. I had better luck with the Whynter FM-62DZ Dual Zone. It holds it value better. Most of the time we use a normal cooler with ice for anything under a 6 day trip.
I think that the m1101 trailer makes the best platform for a camper, I've seen a few really nice self built ones.
Even though you can use a credit card almost anywhere these days (parking meters, taxi cabs, tow trucks, gas pumps, etc etc etc) I still keep a roll of quarters and a dozen 20's wrapped in a ziplock baggie in my tool duffle. The sketchier the situation the handier a wad of good ol' greenbacks can be.

Its nice to have AAA, but self reliance goes a long way. Having the proper tools on hand also allows other to be helped, so I lug it all around.
