I guess it probably takes us about an hour, depending on what we have out (chairs, lights, etc.), and whether I need to dump and rinse the black tank. We always us a checklist and try not to be in a hurry.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

You have gotten some great answers and I agree with them. Like everything else, it depends on you and your setup and your experience. I watched a neighbor in the park I am in spend about an hour and a half just getting his car on a tow dolly and strapped down and the lights connected and tested. There were two of them working on it and I have no idea why it took so long. I have watched another RVer get his done in about 20 minutes. If you tow a car four wheels down it may only take you 5 minutes to hook it up and get the brake and lights connected. Others may take longer. I know some people who leave toasters and coffee pots on the counters while driving. I would never do that so it takes me a little longer to put them away. Some people load up their bed with "stuff" and others don't. We have a room size carpet in our living room that goes over the cheap worn carpet that is built in. It takes me 2 or 3 minutes to roll it up and put it on the sofa for travel. Some people clean house before leaving - we don't. So you see it varies from person to person. I think 30 minutes to 2 hours is a good rule of thumb. If you are retired, it doesn'tmatter how long it takes. If you are not retired then you need to retire as soon as possible. Happy RVing!
