Easy to put up and I'm a woman on my own. Love the awning it is well constructed, so Im made up with my purchase. I own an Nissan NV200 camper van with pop up top. The width of the awning is virtually that of the van and so there is a problem with attaching it, as the van is shorter than a VW. I threw the straps over at the very back and the front where the roof starts to slope placing it behind the aerial. It's not ideal as I have had to fix the rest of the tunnel to the top of the van with magnets as it wasnt flat to the roof because of the van being too short. Hope this helps other NV200 owners as I found nothing on the internet with regards to purchasing a suitable awning for the van.
