Awning to difficult to put up solo


I bought a 2x2mt awning for my car after my first solo trip to give, but I find it to awkward to put up and take down on my own. So I've only used it on the odd occasion I have company. The hardest part is trying to roll it back up it's just to heavy. Any suggestions 

Cheers

Lucy

Tie a guy rope to the centre of the outer rail, it only needs to be light weight as it's only temporary. Probably have to drill a hole through the aluminium extrusion.

Peg that to the ground & release the corner ropes. The only way to avoid scratching the car.
