Just have to find your "groove" with the awning. Assuming your 1207 has a similar one to our former 1007. Took a couple of years, but it becomes second nature as you get used to it. It does help to have two people though. A few tips:
Try to remember to unzip the bag and release all but the one Velcro strip closest the step.
Once the top is up, and all are clear, let the last Velcro go - you should be able to reach it from the step.
Start with the centre pole. Walk behind the awning and place the rubber end into position.
Walk the awning out.
Place the two part riser pole onto the end of the rafter pole. Compress and pop into the hole in the front awning pole.
It should now be self standing if a bit wobbly.
Keep the leg short until you get the other two poles in place.
Last step, lift the legs to provide good clearance, runoff and level.
When breaking camp, the awning is the very last thing to be done.
Bunk ends should already be stowed.
Reverse the order of assembly.
With the awning hanging against the side of the pup, lower the roof until you can easily reach the awning's stow bag.
This is a really good time to clean any crud from the awning material.
With your partner, roll the awning carefully back up to the bag. and secure with Velcro and the zipper.
See? Easy as 21 steps.
Now attaching the outdoor room is a totally different story and a very long job. I think we used ours 3 or 4 times in 7 years.
I am so looking forward to the power awning on our new (to us) hybrid!
ETA - that May thread on the bike rack probably has the picture of mine. It's on here somewhere. Sportrack cross rails and four carriers. Not fantastic quality (I prefer Thule too) but it lasted 7 years (rough shape though by the end). Just bought a new Thule for the X19 last weekend. Will use a Stromberg or Arivika frame to mount it over the propane tanks on the A-frame. We did keep a 2 step utility step in the pup to help with getting the bikes down too. Also handy for stringing lines, tarps, checking roof, etc.
