We call this our preflight checklist because our family uses this checklist to get our Lance travel trailer ready to leave our house or to leave a camping spot. We’ve developed this checklist over a couple years of traveling based on what we decided was the most efficient way to get ready to leave.
The checklist helps us to make sure we don’t overlook any critical tasks. The “Who” column reminds our sons who is primarily responsible for each task. Our best time ever to complete this checklist was 12 minutes, but it usually takes around 20 minutes from start to finish.
