Yall are crazy, transporting it will be much harder than disassembling. We take our mat off every winter because of the snow. With two people, I would guess it takes about 10-15 minutes to take it off or put it back on. Just leave the springs connected to the poles. Its really not that big of a deal. However, if your looking for an adventure, try moving it assembled, it will take you twice as long, but it would be fun to watch. Those things are bigger than you think.
