Digging holes at the campgrounds I go to is frowned upon. We went with friends one time and they dug a hole to do some cooking in, and the campground owners told them to fill it up.
Lowering the waste tank would be nice, since the sewer drain on these campers is pretty low.

chuckworkb I never asked, but we have had the same site since 1982 for the week of 7/4 but only had the 19H for 3 yrs .So the hole for the "blue buddy" has only been for 3 yrs, and the cg hasn't said a word, I do fill in when we leave.Larry

Setting up... Hmmm, never really timed it. Sometimes all we do when unhooking is leveling, chalking, unhooking, stowing wdh, electric hookup. As we need the other stuff, then we do them. Depends on our plans when we get to the cg.

Break down... team work routine as well following our 'check list' helps greatly. Unless we are coming home from a trip, we 'dump' the night before and disconnect the sewer drain tubes. The satellite, water hose, stabilizing jacks, and pretty much everything else are done in the morning. With that, the two of us can be hooked up and on our way in 45 minutes. If it's just me, it can take an hour or so. As for the double check before driving off.. it only takes us 2-3 minutes unless we find something we missed (check list makes that a rare occurrence though )

It depends where we are at. If we are getting ready to leave from home; it takes a few days. As we putz to put cloths in one day, groceries another day. 5-10 minutes to hook up, and disconnect the shore power. In reality we could leave the house in 20 minutes easily if we had to.

Arrival at camp, once we have the TT in the site, it takes about 20-30 minutes to have the majority of the setup work done. Making the beds are the hardest part, and we do it as a team, I am outside, open the emergency exit window and stand there and help. AS a team it is quick.

Breaking camp; If we had to, we could pull out in less than 30 minutes, however it takes a few hours as we putz again, then do something fun, then work for a few minutes, and then play some more. We commonly do not leave camp Sunday until sometime between 2-4 pm, so we have plenty of time.

for me it depends on the trip and how much of our stuff we use. I try to put things away and break things down if we plan on not using them again. I'm a nut about keeping camp clean and organized so it doesn't get out of hand. We had one trip last year that just got out of hand and crap was everywhere. Drove me nuts! Before and after the trip is difficult for us as we can not keep the TT at home. It's 20 miles away in my parents driveway. Set up at the campground goes quickly (20 min) as I set up the essentials (leveling, unhooking, connecting, putting the slides out, 1st beer). Break down depends on my 3 year old's mood. The better the mood the faster the break down.

Timing varies for me depending on the site. If the site is not level it can take a extra 15 minutes to get it right, especially for the longer stays. Once level it goes pretty quick in about 15 minutes to slides out and steps down. The last thing I do is the sewer since I don't need it until a few days in anyway. I'd say 1/2 hr average then I open a "pop" and take my time setting up the site. If I have helpers it goes a lot faster.

The packing of the unit goes on for week prior to departure since the unit sits at the house while not in use. It usually is only 10 minutes to hitch and go if there is only a shore power cord to store. I usually pack the site the night prior while the fire is dwindling as I hate to put stuff away damp or wet.

Once we pull in, I can have the camper unhooked leveled, beds out and set up in about 45 minutes by myself or 30 minutes if my wife is helping.

Leaving takes a little longer with clean up of dishes, and dumping the tanks - so about 1:30 by myself or 1:00 with my wife.

Took about 2 hrs & 3 beers to set up on 7/27, very hot & humid. We didn't rush except for the first beer, very cold --went down like gold. Larry

For me, about an hr to make camp and two hrs to break camp. Add 1/2 hr each way if PUGs are involved.
