I do not travel light, and *always* bring too many clothes.

On the other time, our last trip out, Sneak didn't bring enough socks.

Me? I probably had 8 extra pairs.

Before seasonal site I could be ready in just a few hours. Now Im gone in less then 30 min. with a seasonal site. Fridge/freezer is stocked food, drink and of course beer.

Now if FDW takes care of things it could be a couple of days .

Can't really say how long always doing things to the camper for the "next time" to make it better or more conveinent or useful but putting in supplies needed for each trip may be one or 2 days now that retired just take as long as we want to.

On my trip over Labor Day I was amazed how fast I got ready. I got the truck loaded up in less than 10 minutes, spent about 20 minutes at the grocery store with an tentative list before picking up the TT & heading out.

Within an hour after arriving at the campground I found out that I missed packing my chair, table and a couple of clothes items that would had been nice to have with me. Upon arriving at home I have moved the chair & clothes items to the camping container for the next trip. The container is blocking the hitch so it will be hard to forget.

For us it depends on the length of the trip. We always have the camper loaded with clothes and the fridge loaded cause I've been known to call the wife and tell her to be ready in the morning when I get home from work. But for longer trips we always make sure we have everything we could want. (Because of what the DW brings). And yes most of it never gets used. It gets better the longer you have your rig.

We have gotten a lot more streamlined in packing up. Typically for us its really about a 2-5 hour load up and that's a very slow pace because we are dealing with kids. We use the closets for shirts with hangers and the drawers for our clothes. We have dedicated Rubbermaid for the dry food and just toss it on the dinette and fill the pantry when we arrive. I have a soft sided cooler that i use for the fridge stuff. It helps that I have a garage fridge that holds most of the camping items so I clear it out and just fill up the trailer. Trailer checks like Air Pressure and what not are now routine. After changing to the equalizer hitch, i have added an extra step in properly torque the head but no big deal. I normally turn on the fridge the night before departure in the storage lot. We did one trip in the spring where we decided to camp while still eating BKFST at home, and within an hour we were on the road!

For us, it varies. We do grocery shopping weekly and keep the fridge , freezer. and pantry stocked so no extra trips to the stove.
about two days before, I turn on the fridge and load non perishables clothes and other items. Most of our gear stays in the covered truck bed so no loading there. The day before load fridge and freezer, check tires and hitch up. Day of trip, load dogs, get in and go.
