Ok. i hate to sound negative, but whats the solution to getting these case awnings set up alone? I am tired of trying to find someone to help me set it up and down everytime I go camping! It seems to be a real pain!! I just want to either rip it off or sell the trailer all together!! I have no idea what to replace it with or how to do it or know of anyone who deals with fiberglass trailer to put one of those crank out ones on for me like Joy A did.

I have put in for 'hosting' at several campground in the area, and want to be independant in setting up BUT as I saw its a chore.. not making my camping experience fun.... Any suggestions on replacements? I really need the awning for shade or rain for the dogs and setting up the xpens to make a small area for them so they have free rane in and out of the trailer...

Yeah, if you have a window shade awning..it can be a pain. But you can put it up/out by yourself, it just takes some time.

An EZ-Up is NOT easy and really takes two people unless you have many minutes so you can walk around and around and around pulling the legs out a bit each time. You should see my daughter and I trying to get our Ez-Up deployed Oh brother
