I'd add "Torque Wrench" to your list. We occasionally have a trailer lose a wheel and recommend that trailer owners check their wheel nut torque regularly.

This is amazing!! I am over here trying to plan what to bring... & half of the stuff on your list I haven't even thought of.. I was going to do a trial in my yard and add as the days go by... haha

This is a great little list, we're going to be getting a trailer very soon as this is exactly what I needed to get things started.
