Same advice I usually give because it happened to us on a Sunday in the middle of nowhere with no UPS or Goodwill nearby and we needed to be back on the road with places to be.

Those big ziplock vacuum collapse as seen on TV space bags don't require much storage space and when sucked down I think you could fit 4 suitcases worth of stuff into the space of one suitcase.

For us it was spring and we had both winter and summer wardrobes along. After packing it all in the car, there was still room for Murph.

Good thing you made room for Murph Dave or YOU would have been finding another way home! A man’s got to know his limitations

Additional tips to above.

Greet your neighbors. If they don't return the greeting? Fine. Now you know.

Keep the general noise down. Please don't be yelling to or at each other. Don't blast the stereo.

Keep your stuff/vehicles inside the limits of your campsite.

Decide if you want to give tours of your Bird. People will ask.
