I agree assembly of the Galaxi is best done with help, but I did it solo. I’m capable of lifting one end of the bed, so I lfted each end up about a foot or more at a time, blocking it up as I went. Got it on top of a b&d workmate with a car screw jack under it, then placed the legs under each end. The headstock was much tougher. Not sure what it weights guessing close to 200#, but I was able to lift it. I used the workmate and blocks to align the height and slid it onto the ways.
