I set up my Quicksilver 6.0 on my own, but I got that one because there are many solo owners of the smaller size. The larger ones really work better with two people setting up. There are people on the Livin Lite forum who say they can set the 8.1 and 10.0 solo. I thought that I would get tired of doing it over and over so opted for a one bunk version. I'm mighty jealous of people who push a button and have their roof go up, but it's nice to not need a TV larger than my Subaru. And, it's wonderful to know I won't have wood rot. Ever. I wish I could do the carpentry I see in the rebuilds, but I can't.
