Depends on what you mean by standard.  what size of jobs you can handle, how far away from your shop, . there is never enough room no matter how big your rig is.

Just My opinion

2-4 dh, 6 to 8 air movers, 1 airscrubber, 1 vapour tek, waterclaw, mop, broom, shopvac, blocks, floor scraper, drop cloths/runners,pump sprayer, hand tools, meters/prope, chem, garbage bags/ cans, boxes, gloves/ppe, and a gps. That should be ok for one average job or two small jobs.  

Could somebody just clean my carpets!

I would recommend:
3 Axial Air Movers per Dehu. Air movement is extreamly important.
As far as Dehu's are concerned make sure to get an LGR.
Phoenix makes the best, check out their R200. I think it has the bang for the buck in this industry!
It is also stackable so as you grow you can fit more equipment in your truck.
Good starter package would be:
2 Phoenix R200's
6 Phoenix Axial Air movers

If you cant afford that I would go with
1 Phoenix R200
1 Phoenix R125
2 Phoenix Axial airmovers
2 Phoenix Stackable Cams airmovers
If that is still too much:
2: R125's
4: Phoenix Cams

Good equipment should pay foritself within 20 days or so and then all the profit is gravy. Don't be fooled by cheap stuff, you get what you pay for.
There are also some decent used deals out there if you are willing to look!
