Auto leveler😀 10 min, 20 mins setup/tear down 😀 Must admit, I'm a bit jealous. We still have our pop up, which is great in its own little world. But I must admit, I'm a bit in awe at how quick and easy a TT, MH or 5er is to set up.

Still my kids think it is awesome, so that makes up for it. And yes, I must agree. We are camping for the week now at laurel highland near Ohio Pyle in PA. The neighbors have brought everything and then some.

Wife n I can get set up n tear down in about 20 minutes on our 44' toy hauler. That Auto Level is absolutely a must I will not go without! We work on wireless internet when we travel so breaking down the portable office inside takes most of the time. Pretty simple set up for us....dogs on tieout, couple bag chairs, companion Holland grill, maybe the mat...beer.

More important than how fast you set up is how much fun you are having and the memories you are making. After Boy Scouts in the 50s and Jungle camping in the 60s I started with a 19' camper in the 70s. My girls have memories they will never forget. Now the 2 of us and a very old dog just keep going and exploring the US in a 35' 5er with 3 slides. Much more room than the 4 of us had. When you reach our age you will still be making memories and the advances in equipment will boggle your mind. Our 1st TV was a '74 Plymouth and today is a 1 ton diesel truck with more amenities than available back then. Many "awesome" years to go.

Is anyone familiar with this leveling device. It looks good but is obviously more expensive than three pieces of 1x12 screwed together.

We had one for our single axle Jayco 17Z trailer. It worked great! Even if the site was level it makes for the best wheel chock. Very simple to use and easily raised the low side of the trailer a few inches or more when needed.
I don't use one now that we have the duel axle, and I miss it!

The reason I bought my Dynamax DX3-37RB is because, even with the two slides retracted, my Super-C diesel puller is 99% usable (the bed blocks three drawers). If I'm just stopping for the night, there's no need to open a slide. If I'll be in one location for more than two days, I can be fully deployed in about 30 minutes.

You know for some people, especially the new campers, half the fun is setting up that complete camp site. For us it's now a matter of what we'll be using. If we're going to sit outside on the toyhauler ramp we get out some chairs and the propane campfire and some lights for the rails. We usually pull it down at night to close up. Still fun. It used to be really fun to get it all out regardless and set it up, just for the sake of that "complete" RV site. Now its fun to have less work and 20 minutes up and 30 down (including sewer dumping). So while we're all judging (myself included), its good to remember those early days when it was just cool to be able to create that RV site like you see in the magazines.

Getting judged by fellow campers/neighbors is my favorite part about going camping!
