    Don't try on your own as they are extremely heavy.:)

    I believe that there is a standard fixing kit comprising of three brackets which will fit onto the roof, that’s assuming you have bought the correct version for a VW.

    If it’s similar to the type fitted to the Peugeot/ Fiat then it’s not a difficult job. It only took me about 30 minutes. The difficult part will be lifting up the awning if on your own, I managed a 3.4 m one by putting the ladder in the middle and holding the awning on my arms. Not easy but it was the way I used to fix wooden gutter when I was 15.
    Easier if you can get someone to give you a lift.
