We use the plastic totes with the interlocking hinged lids. They are clear so we can get a relatively good idea whats in them, and they stack well in the garage. They are pretty durable and hold a considerable amount of stuff.

Like Bansai said, we are trying to stock the camper as a "Second home" with the exception of food. We are not quite there just yet but making steady progress.

Plastic cates and Rubbermaid totes for the bigger stuff. We take out all perishables (obviously), all the bedding and towels, anything freezable, and any batteries from the remotes and detectors. After the cleaning and winterizing, it pretty much takes an afternoon to do.

What we take out only requires about 15-30 minutes. Remaining clean clothes, dirty clothes, and food (except that which we leave in between trips, which means tea and coffee bags, granola bars, unopened crackers, and spices) all come out quickly. Electronics come out. But the MH has its own tools, pots and pans, dishes and glasses, gadgets and repair supplies, and some clothing. So, it's pretty easy. Helps that we have a year-round RV season. No need to winterize or batten down the hatches. But it also means the darn thing needs to be washed and maintained year-round as well.

We use plastic grocery bags for food hauling in and out, and I always use the bottom drawers of the fridge for cold food, so we can wash those out at the same time. Dirty clothes are in their own mesh bag, and clean clothes just get stacked and carried. It's about a one-hour project max.

All we take out is clothes [dirty and clean] and food in fridge. Camper is always ready to go.

Laundry basket we found works the best. Sometimes right from the store straight to camper food goes. Once I get more black top done I'll be able to load a cart and go door to door

Plastic grocery bags for loading and unloading.

I keep a stash of them on board. They make great trash can liners too!

We emptied fridge and all food items from the cabinets and brought the stuff home. We also put everything in plastic totes with lids including all the dishes, utensils, pots and pans and left them in the rig.
Over kill I know, but the DW fears critters may crawl all over the stuff during the winter, so she puts EVERYTHING in sealed totes.
We brought all the linens and summer clothes home as well. We have a late fall/winter caribbean trip coming up so we'll need some of the summer clothes.

The TT is stocked like a second home we will be visiting in a week.

After just a routine campout, cleanout is quick and easy. First my DW grabs the full laundry basket full of dirty cloths, as I am parking the truck, and removing the hitch. Bring that in dump it out, start a load of laundry. Bring the basket out, fill it with the refrigerated items (we turn the frig off between trips). Bring it in and put it all away. Grab the cloth boxes from the closet, bring them in. Next bring in any special items we might have brought along. Within about 30 minutes of unhooking everything is in the house and put away. If the kid does not help or we are putzing it might take us an hour to off load, but usually we just want to get it done. Most of the cabinets do not get off loaded, all of our pots pans, utensils, and the like stay in the HTT year round. Nonperishables stay in their cabinets until they are needed, or until the of the season. We never store any food items in the TT over the winter.

Yup. 31 bags for us too. They are the handiest darn things for packing and unpacking the TT.
