I do this alone because I usually camp alone. For me it's 15 minutes outside, but add about 2 minutes to level side to side if necessary, and about 10 minutes inside. One nice thing about our particular White Hawk is the storage back on the left rear. Everything I need for that area is right there... and staged for the way I proceed.

I don't have any pictures and TT is in storage. All I did was take scrap 1/4" baltic birch pieces I had laying around, about 4 or 5" tall and cut to the width of the pantry. Took some 3/4" sq maple I had and cut a rabbit a little bigger than the panel and glued them to the back of the pantry frame. The panels just slide down into those rabbits to hold things in place while traveling. Once we get there DW slides the panels up and slides them along the side inside the pantry.

We too once had the door pop open and stuff all over the floor...only need it to happen once and you adapt quickly.. the bars were more a PIA than worth it. The panels cost nothing and does a great job.

I did install an EMS in the small table between the chairs, not much room to hard wire it but it's in and working great, so that eliminates plugging in the portable unit and putting the locking box on it. It also allows me to get more accurate readings of Voltage in the Campground. Most time we are working in the campground and it's nice to know what's going on when were not working. Plus, it will manage our useage when were not "home". We typically work in more remote places that have more issues with water and electrical service. Peace of mind is well worth the cost.

Around 45 minutes if I'm not boondocking. Boondocking adds at least another 15 minutes because I have to set up two generators.

It takes me a while because I'm pretty slow at it.

I spend a lot of time on Tree Supervision. Glad to know it's got a name.

I put on mini bungee cords to holds the door handles together now when traveling. I really like your idea with the panels. I keep wine glasses in the shallow tall cabinet above the TV. Of course when the slide comes in, the doors don't open. I use a shelf liner that I cut in a squares with a slit in the middle that I pull over the steam. This cushions the glasses when traveling. My husband put little eyes on the frames of the door which I stretch a bungee across the middle so the glasses don't fall out when I first open the door. However, I recenly purchased some very thin plastic glasess that you cannot the difference between glass when looking at them. I plan to christen them on the next trip. I hope the wine taste the same. LOL

Hmmmm... we've never had a door or drawer open on the road, so now I have a new worry.

Don't worry, ReelCool. We found the fix if the plastic glasses changes the taste of the wine... have some more wine.

Tree supervision....... Egad! I was a supervisor for many years! No wonder I'm so good at it! I've seen a couple that needed to be written up for a safety violation!

I love it when old threads get revived! I like to go back and look at what I posted back then and see if anything has changed.

In this case, my first post to this thread was well over a year ago, and not much has changed. My son is much more proficient at helping productively (he takes care of the stabilizers). We still don't "vomit" into our site and only get items out if/when we need to use them. We still don't buzz around like bees during setup, and we tend to move at a leisurely pace "with purpose" when we first arrive. We've gotten better at the whole process in general, so it goes quicker anyway.

Our "roles" have become blurred though. More often than not, DW will hook up power while I'm unhooking from the truck; typically this is in an effort to get the AC going quicker. If she sees I'm lagging behind for some reason, she'll jump in and take care of stuff on the outside. Once we get leveled, my son is on stab jack duty, then he "helps" me with the rest of the utilities while DW gets the inside ready. Then I'll take care of any entertainment requirements (like getting the antenna up or the cable taken care of) while I drink some water (or "other") inside, and junior eats a snack.

The whole thing has really become second nature to us at this point and I would be hard pressed to make a comprehensive list of what we do and how long that takes. I just don't think about setup anymore, it just happens...

15-20 minutes in the summer, usually under 10 in the winter since we are dry camping at that point.

But our TT is small and we don't usually put much outside.
