To each their own. If I were younger and had company I would expand my setup. Since I RV solo I like to keep things simple as possible. I would use my awning if it was powered but since its not I usually don't brother with it due to the afternoon wind.

Simple works well for me.

Was just mulling this over in my pea brain while breaking camp at last weeks FROG International Rally...couldn't put out everything I normally would due to our location. Loaded quite a few things Friday night but still seemed like I was forever getting ready to roll and then hook up the toad Sat morning. Heading out this weekend for a three nighter, guess I'll time myself and see how long it takes..might be less than I think, or, maybe I'm just getting slow in my old age..

X2- minus the manual awning. I spend more of my time getting the dogs ready for travel than myself.

X2. With the dogs it pretty much doubles our set up and take down time. but we bought the trailer to be able to travel with the dogs so I wouldn't have it any other way. cincia

With everything being said, I bet they still had a good time.

we used the BAL leveler with our single axle Casita and it worked so well when we got a Micro Lite 21DS I bought two and used them on it,.... still worked ok, but the heavier trailer was quite a strain on my cordless drill,... now with the Micro Lite 25KS I'm very happy with the Andersen Leveler

My whole planning time is spent planning food and meals. How did no one mention that?

Me too! Lots of cooking and freezing before we leave. Maybe previous posters don't cook?

I do quite a bit of that myself. I actually cook and eat MUCH better (or at least more) than at home.

Other than breakfast which we eat more often while camping our meal prep is pretty much what we eat at home. So it is go to the freezer or pantry and pick out what we will be eating for the trip.
