Heck...last year, I had to set up in 3" of water!

The site we were assigned was apparently in a "hole".

I put my sandals on, put on a rain coat and had at it. As soon as the camper was level side to side and off the truck, I put the slide out and awning out and put the wife and tot in the camper while I leveled front to back and got the stabilizers down and water/electric hooked up. As soon as that stuff was complete, I went inside until it stopped raining.

Try to have all equipment/tools staged for easy efficient access either in trailer or tow vehicle. Take enough time to do the setup correctly and safely. Have a change of dry clothes ready in trailer. Enjoy adult beverage, and game with family.

Well I made it. The heavy stuff moved out till after 2:00 P.M. EST. here. I got a little wet but didn't need the rain coat.

Latest forecast shows no rain tomorrow. Cool but no rain. I'll take it.

And there you have it... three pages of what to do if it rains during set-up and you didn't even need your rain coat.

Happy Camping!

There are only 2 of us and we work as a team. I will have the level in the trailer and look to see where we have to level (boards under wheels). Once we are good I start putting blocks out to stabilize. Then we hook up and get inside. Teamwork works great.

Strap on pontoons and let it float. Just remember to bring a mud anchor.
