Smart DW, house and the rig should stand on their own, no moving "stuff" back an forth and being exhausted, before you start your vacations
. What the "man of the house" needs depends on how "handy" you are and "how hard" you want to work on the road. So either bring lots of tools or buy road service and bring two charge cards.
Our record for leaving on vacations, from hook-up to departure (we were young then and vacations were short) was 18 minutes.
