How long does it take you to set up or break down?

I started at 7:00 AM this morning and had the trailer connected to the truck at 10:00. That seems like a long time. I was doing it all myself, so maybe that's why. I never really clocked it before.

It depends on the circumstances. Normally 2-3hrs packing up slowly. We have woken up to snow on a couple May long weekends and I have hooked up in 1/2hr.

Depends on how much stuff you have and how motivated you are to get going. My wife and I as a team can pack up and go in 2 hours safely. As far as packing up, we are much faster. If we take an hour I would be surprised.

We did about 2hrs this morning in our first pass through it. Now that didn't include the stop at the dump station. By 'teamwork' my wife's job is to take the toddler out so I can pack/clean in peace.

Seems to take me about a 1/2 hour to get the trailer in place, unhooked, jacks down, slide out, awning out, hoses connected and hitch hardware put away. Reverse is about the same.

Then I hand the site over to my wife for the odds and ends and get a beer.

I'd say about 1/2 hr to set up and a little longer to tear down. It takes a bit longer to get everyones stuff in the camper so we can leave the house. I usually pull the trailer out of the shop and park it next to the back deck for loading...fewer steps and it's right off the kitchen so things move pretty quickly.

AS long as it takes - The beer tastes the same if you do it in 30 mins or two hours...

Packing out to leave the house is probably 1-2 hours.
Once we're camping, it takes us 45 minutes to be wheels rolling.
If we are leaving at 6am, I will often hook up WDH the night before so I don't make any noise.

My DW tells people it takes me 2 days to setup when we go for a couple weeks. I do like to tinker, like an underground elect service to the table under the ez-up., dig the hole to lower the " blue buddy", set up the outside sink (home made)with running water under the awning. Of course in between all that comes a few "cold ones" in the chaise lounge. Maybe next week it will take 3 days who knows. lol Larry

I must either have too much stuff, or I am really slow.
Getting ready to go, for me is not hard, just get the clothes, bedding, food in the fridge, hook up, and off I go.
It's the setting up and breaking down at the campsite.
