They work great. I use the ones from my last pop up in my actual hybrid and they are a MUST.

When we had our tent trailer it was around 30-40 minutes for a full hook up sight. We have three young children and even they had a job. Mine was inside his was outside the kids set up chairs and toys, now with a tt I'm sure it will all be faster. We will see next week how that works out with our first trip. Btw setting up a tent trailer is a breeze compared to making sure everything went back to its home to tear down without breaking or bending something.

When we had our PUP and the kids we had it down to seven minutes from unhooking it from the car to the chairs out and with a Pepsi in hand. Now our TT takes us 15 minutes. Thats leveling, unhooking w/power jack, power stabilizers down, sliders out, power awning out, power & waterhooked up, mat down, chairs out and cold one in the hand.

If it is a one night stop over, about 10 minutes to run the stabilizers down and hook up water, run the awning out, hook up sewer & elec.

If it is for a week or more, probably 2 or 3 days. We get out what we want when we want it, not before.

This may sound like a crock...but from backing in to campfire burning usually 25 to 30 minutes for us. We have it down to an art now. Everybody has their job from unhooking, to levelling, dropping and setting up the bed ends, pulling out the awning, setting up the outside bbq and stove, chairs, tables and fire. It is a very well choreographed dance. Now, where'd my beer go?

2-3 beers, depending on the campsite and how fast I can pick up the satelite signal...
