We do the same, pack up the morning off.

I agree jar3316, this is unfortunate and frankly ignorant of the people that were not ready and should have left by the check-out time. We're new with the TT however have enough experience to pack up and be off the site on-time. The exception possibly being an issue with their TT/TV, e.g. not starting.

johnleannIt seems to take forever to break it down and get out of camp on the day of departure. We too do not want the fun to end is prob another reason. johnleannIt seems to take forever to break it down and get out of camp on the day of departure.

To those of you who like to leave at the last minute, do like we do book an extra day. Then you don't have to be out by noon or 1 you can leave whenever you like that day.

We have done this before so we can stay longer, especially if it is a close enough drive that we can get home and unhitched before dark. Think it was only an extra $35 once and we got to stay for dinner with our friends without having to rush off.
We are getting better at leaving the site on time. If we ever get to a point where we are actually traveling from place to place as is intended by having a Travel Trailer, I suspect we will travel light and unpack minimally.
I have already gotten some good points from reading this thread that might help with a timely departure.

When we are breaking camp the next morning, unless we are trying to meet a specific arrival time on a short haul day, we usually are gone at between 5 and 530 in the morning so everything is stowed including the slides as we can get around our entire unit with the slides in. Only thing we need to put away is the power cord as we like our morning coffee. We are always hooked up with the stabilizers up ready to roll to keep the noise to a minimum when we roll out. we do this as most of our travel days are 12hr days.

Me being a Boondocker or Dry Camper I like to be packed up and ready to go home first light. This way I get home intime to clean everything up. If I dont clean everything up as soon as I get home it might be a few days before I get to it. (I normally know the night before wheather or not I am staying another night)

As far as staying in a reserved spot, I am out of there before check out. Its all about RESPECT. I too have been in situations where someone is in my spot at check-in time.
To me thats NO RESPECT and we could have problems. Nothing like driving several hours to see someone in you spot. I like to set up ASAP, then it all about relax mode.

PLEASE HAVE RESPECT FOR OTHERS AND ENJOY YOUR CAMPING

I pack up the day we leave and generally pull off the site within an hour of our vacate time. if you arrive early you may have to wait as I have done plenty of times myself. if I have need to leave late I reserve and pay for an extra night. To me the only reasonable excuse to be on-site after posted check out is an emergency
