I guess I was lucky in that before I bought our Pennine Pathfinder, I did not read any of the estimated erection and dismantling times that I have since seen quoted on here.
Had I done so, I would have been seriously worried during our first attempts at doing the same, that I was taking anything up to 5 times longer to do the same jobs as others had quoted.
As it was, I just worked my way through the procedures and, over time, made some adjustments to the FC that made erecting and dismantling easier and marginally quicker.
However, camping was never a race and time, for us, is never in short supply. We plan our trips that way and there is always plenty to spare.
Indeed the only time that time matters is when camp site owners insist on us being off the site by a certain time. But there are ways around that too.
Now that we have moved on to a van, I guess we will have to work out a new set of laying out and packing up procedures and that will be interesting to see how these compare to FC antics. At least the "quick overnight stops" should be a lot less taxing.
