The Pennine Pullman must be very different from a Pennine Pathfinder.
Even after erecting the pathfinder, you then have to build up all of the inside to even reach the beds and then undo and put up all the curtains that are carried on the beds under the mattress holding straps.

Now don't get me wrong, quick overnighters in an FC are possible, but for a decent night's sleep they do have to be set up properly and an hour and fifteen minutes would be more realistic.

We leave all the insides in their packed positions ... 'clamber' over the packed stuff to the beds ... no problem. Sure, the Pullman doesn't have the toilet compartment, so not sure how that impacts ... and, as I've previously said, we took out our fold down cupboard to provide more packing space for other 'stuff'.

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.

Does any one else have access to all my photos on photobucket when they click on the above link or is it just me as it's my account?
If you do have access to all my photos then how do I prevent this?

I think you need to set up photobucket to make it private. The one of you in the leotard is good though!
