I think if I were planning such a toolkit my clamp kit would heavily
feature Spanish windlass.

 When I read your question my first thought was a workbench too. I've
spent a lot of time driving around the country living out of my truck.
I know that every inch of your space will be a very valuable. (Don't
forget to save a bit of space for some awesome finds at antique stores
and flea markets along the way if you can.) 

 So what about the Schawrz milkman workbench?

 I would think you would want a space saving toolchest too.

 A couple other things not to forget would be
 - Small set of clamps- Sharpening kit
 Happy travels!

 I haven't posted for a long time. I am in the process of purchasing a
cargo
 van to convert to a RV. The plan is to travel around the country and
fish,
 camp, visit friends family and via ancestry.com follow roots around
the
 country. Now the question is as I travel around I plan using old
tools to
 create my rv interior and have a traveling workshop, what tools would
you
 on the porch suggest as a compact tool kit to accomplish this task? I
have
 some hand saws, planes, chisel, froe, maul, axes and such. I would
really
 value some input to help me. Roy Underhill has helped inform me, his
school
 in North Carolina is a destination too. Thanks for your past
information.
