Don't really time it is just a trying to get an order to make things as smooth as possible so I can relax quicker. Making things as easy as you can so its smooth, quick and painless for max enjoyment.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

You're doing fine! Take your time and enjoy! After doing set up and tear down many times, your time will naturally come down!

We left Pa and now we are in Calf. on a month trip. We have set up and taken down 8 times in 1 1/2 weeks. We have it down pat now. My wife is a big help. We pull from 8am to 8pm and that is enough for us. The more we use this pop up the more we like it. The set up after pulling all day is not bad. We did have to set up in a very bad storm one time! That's the life on the road with a pop up.

Being in a hurry usually ends up in a screw up. Tearing the canvas, poking something through something, bending something....Relax and do things right. I really loved our pop ups...

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

Usually around 45 minutes for us. We usually aren't in any great rush and actually kind of enjoy it. Once we get the roof up and ends out we divide and conquer. My wife takes the inside and I do the outside.

hey all, got a new Flagstaff HWSC31TH ( the thing is a beast) that we have had out out about 5 times this year. This is the first pup thats ever had a slider on it so set up is strange still. Had a 98 Coleman, could set it up 20 min. no problem, this one 30-45 min. ( 30 min. by myself, 45 if the wife helps)
It gets better each time, but who cares, it aint no race!! The object is to have fun

After a month and 8500 miles my wife and I take less than 1\2 hr. But we had to get a hotel for one night due to very bad weather. I have set up in rain and the beds were dry. I was not dry!
We were in Texas and after two dust storms and 75 mph winds driving all day we drove into heavy rain and lighting. Time for a hotel. But after a month in a pop up and dealing with weather we are going to do it again in 2016.
