Last fall I purchased my first vehicle: an '89 vanagon. Long story short - baptism by fire! My feet are still awfully (awfully) wet, but I've at least sorted out that there are some parts worth having on board at all times ...

Was wondering what the veteran vanagoers would recommend keeping on hand in case of common road-side issues?

Looking forward to much sage advice!

sigh - feels like I missed all the fun ...

what a list to parse, why can't the internet be more organized?!

Practically speaking, is there a more manageable approach for new initiates who have little experience to draw on to judge these various suggestions? Or is trial & error the time-proven only-road for westys?

Thanks for the links - should keep me busy for a good while!
