When we were camping July 4th, it was too windy to put up the awning when we first got there. The next day we set it up, of course the PUP was already set up. It was a challenge. We had to borrow a foot stool to do it. We like to open it up before we set up, but it is not always possible. We'll have to get a foot stool.
The awning wasn't so bad to set up the first time. Although I didn't know about that little velcro strip in the middle. Thew screen room was another story all together. There was another PUP set-up with one near by so I wondered over to see how they did it. He was a lot of help, after the first time it wasn't too bad.
As long as I can remember to open it up before the top goes up!
