In some of the other threads, short folks have mentioned using a pole to lift the A-frame roof. I'm guessing that a 4ft pole (or so) with a handle at the bottom and a crutch to fit the roof lift handle would do the trick easier than a ladder or step.
Even at 5ft 9in, raising the roof can be a little difficult if the ground I'm standing on is much lower than the where the wheel is. Making a lift pole is on my winter list.
My wife will take turns driving on longer drives. But setup is strictly my chore. She helps position the A-frame in the site, and the rest is up to me. I can have the A-frame completely set up (by myself) in less than 45 minutes (includes disconnecting minivan, connecting electric and water, hooking up gray water). The hardest part of set up or tear down is putting (or removing) the WDH head on the minivan (it's heavy, but worth it for the anti-sway and good ride).
The EZ-up over the picnic table does take 2 people (or 1 person a long time gradually expanding each joint).
