How many CG in 2 weeks?

We are planning a two week trip in October. Right now, we are planning on spending a week at 4 paws kingdom in NC and 4-5 days in Myrtle Beach, SC. Since it's on the the way home- I was thinking about adding a 2-3 day stop in Savannah, GA. Will it be too much of a pain to set-up and break camp three times in two weeks?

I would go up to four times in two weeks if need be.

The more you set up and tear it down the less time it takes.

I don't see a problem. We made a checklist so we know every thing is stowed and latched and antenna is down. This makes it easy and saves from damage to the 5er. Have a safe trip.

Also depends on how much "stuff" you put out. Are you a simple camper or a camper that has an elaborate setup?

I wouldn't hesitate. The only thing you may tire of is backing in/parking the thing. Otherwise, we stop for a night in transit often. You learn a rhythm and what works for you.

Have fun with it!

We stopped 5 times in 8 days on our first trip, 1200 miles.

We have an 80 day, 4,200 mile trip planned this year starting July 12 that includes 32 stops.

Then don't let it be your first setups. Practice at home, connect to the truck, then unhook, setup completely, level, stabilizers, hoses, power, the works. Then, break it down completely all the way to hooking the truck up.

You'll be shocked at how it can be time consuming at first, and shocked again after a few tries how quickly and easily it can be done.

I've done two campgrounds in a week, but this August I have a two week, five campground and three truck stop trip planned, I'll let you know how that works out!
