About 30 minute plus or minus for me...including setting the Dish up.

I just set up camp a couple days ago and it took longer than usual because I changed the order I did some tasks. Long story short I ended up undoing some tasks and starting over. I have now learn to unhitch first before lowering the stab jacks and will be going back to the order I set up the awning and lights too.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Only complaint is no outlets in the bedroom. Only on ceiling for tv.
I have an outlet in our Crusader 320RLT at the base of the bed. When you walk through the door of the bedroom, look down near the floor next to the night stand.

The amount of time it takes is how familiar you are with your trailer and how long it takes to back into your spot. I have alot of time backing up snowmobile trailers and pontoon boats. I usually get it perfect first try. Others I have watched too 20 min just to get the trailer backed in. Also the use of power tools helps with time as a 1/2 cordless impact on the X chocks and leveling Jacks (non 5th wheel) speeds it up. I have to do everything myself now, so I am at about 35 minutes.

More important than how long I feel is the order you do things. as i saw someone that waited till almost the last thing to be done was to hook up shore power...... Are you kidding me???? I back in then X Chocks then hook Shore Power and start AC . Of course this is for Hot areas as I do not want a HOT BOX after I am done setting up. Then Unhitch and level and sewer is last.
