To say I have a bad back would be an understatement. I have at least two bulging discs that are also degenerating, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal) and severe arthritis in my back as well. I was diagnosed about 2 1/2 years ago and no matter what I do it keeps getting worse. Last year after setting up the pup I would hurt for a few hours and then come out of it fairly well, but it seems that my back got a lot worse over the winter as when I set it up on Friday to get it ready for this season I was in immense pain the rest of the weekend. Yes I set it up alone, and about 1/2-3/4 of the planned camping trips this year are going to be just me and the 3 1/2 year old, so I will be setting up alone most of the time. So anyway now that you know more than you probably want too does anyone have any tips on how to set up the pup to make it easier on a person's back. BTW: The real killer for me are the bunk end and getting the poles in place. 1994 Jayco 1006 Its not what we take with us that matters but what we leave behind that counts.
