Do you expect rain where you camp? Get a really nice tent then. Predictably dry everyday like California summers? Get a $25 Walmart tent. Buy sleeping bags based on temperature ratings. Stoves can vary between backpacker to a few burners. Some sleeping pads, chairs, food, cooler and beer are all else you need. I used to bicycle tour all over Japan, California and the Pacific Northwest, so Jeep camping is very luxurious for me.
