I bought this a few months ago and used it on one trip. I just pulled it out this weekend to see if I could set it up by myself. Sure enough, if you follow the included instructions, it's pretty easy to do on your own. It took me 40 minutes, but that was with going back, double-checking instructions. I think with practice, I could cut that time in half. Included in the package was the outfitter series stove. This thing, while not perfect, is going to be a VERY welcome piece of equipment this fall/winter. It heats up fast and raised the temp of the tent 30 degrees within a few minutes!
