I have a 45 point checklist that I use every time. I usually start the night before and then finish up the next morning. Maybe 45 mins to an hour the night before.
Next morning after breakfast and a walk, we usually take 3 more hrs. I like things cleaned and tightly packed. Everything has it's place. The DW does the inside and I do the outside. BTW she has a 22 point check list for the inside.

Many variables depending on where we are and how long we've been there. Also, how many and how long conversations with neighboring campers take.

It takes us about 30-45 minutes (not including dump time). Sometimes the DW a bit more detailed in what she packs away if we are headed home. I used to unpack at our storage lot but since I've become more comfortable backing up the TT, I drive it up to my house and unpack there to save time.

The place didn't end up having any tornadoes, but we were glad we decided to go home.
Those rain storms tend to make set up or tear downs in record times!

Depends on how fast you need to get rolling. If you are trying to avoid paying for campsite, gone in 60 seconds .

Looking to put everything away and make sure everything is in order, 35-40 minutes..

DW is responsible for all innards shutting down
DH responsible for all outside stuff. It takes W less time than H so that W can be ready to back the truck under the hitch.
25 min maybe 30 if there is cable and sewer etc and electric or the genny is hooked up.
Add 10 minutes if a dump station is required.

It really helps the DW if the DH stows all his electronica and clothes inside their appointed closets and his shoes too.

We don't do any major set up (no carpeting or canopy, just a gas grill that plugs into the TT system, couple of "bag" chairs), so no protracted breakdown either. Typically about 20-25 minutes max from the decision to leave until we are on the road.
