Wood
Pros: Cheap
         Easy to change shape or size as your needs for space change
         DIY - most people would be able to build it from scratch or make modifications (e.g. add windows)
         Can be converted to chazzon ish (replace metal screws with peg screws)
         Can integrate a schlock to the structure
Cons: Heavy, Can warp over time. (note: if you use enough fasteners and are also careful to assemble it balanced this can be minimized)
         Needs lots of storage space

Fiberglass
Pros: Easy Setup (on level ground)
         Length/width is reconfigurable (you just need to buy a few 2x4 beams if you change layout)
Cons: Expensive
         Greenhouse effect on hot days (need to budget for several open/shut windows)
         Connection threads can become bent even with proper storage (need to budget for the odd panel replacement here and there)
         Can Crack or Break

Canvas
Pros: Setup in minutes
Cons: Not accepted by all poskim
         Poor protection from cold Weather
         Wind Can be bothersome.

I'm surprised you didn't start a new thread. It's the holiday of threads. :)

Anyone have any experience with these guys?  Prices seem very good.  http://royalsukkah.com/.  How do they compare to similar canvas Sukkahs (EZ, Deluxe sukkahdepot, sukkah project)?

Funny you should mention them, that's who I went with in the end. They actually have 6x16's, which go for $129 on their website, but when I called them they slashed the prices without me even bargaining. I'm picking up 3 (it's always good to overlap at least a list when you have multiple along their width) of them for around $260 when they arrive at the Jewel Ave store.
Not sure if you saw this, but the CRC Chicago has an article about "schach" that you can get from Home Depot.  It is pretty cheap  compare the cost to others

interesting..

Pricing
During the 2013/5774 Succos season, we priced a few local and internet alternatives for schach and found that: (a) mats specifically certified for Succah‐use, cost 7 to 11 times as much per square foot as the ones recommended in this document, and (b) stores specifically catering to Succah needs were selling loose bamboo poles for approximately 13‐35% cheaper per square foot than Home Depot.
  [Price comparisons do not include shipping charges.  Square foot coverage provided by the different alternatives is estimated.]

thanks.. The eBay one I posted is around/$65 . anything in that range?
For a secondhand piece that you pickup from someone's garage in the UK...good luck.

I'm looking to heat my succah. Are there any safe solutions? I don't have a shlak..
How about this? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004W7SIUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_14?qid=1412510457&sr=1-14&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70

Or http://m.target.com/p/garden-sun-stainless-steel-tabletop-propane-patio-heater/-/A-10054686?ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001&AFID=google_pla_df&LNM=10054686&CPNG=Patio+Garden&kpid=10054686&LID=33pgs&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=10054686&kpid=10054686&gclid=CjwKEAjw2MOhBRCq-Nr87_j-lDASJAAl4FNhIUczIcBfLOmmGwicM2okTMSD5yes-N-AF8cL2JXjIxoC4r_w_wcB




ETA this looks best, how can I get in the us at a normal price? http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/261600194369
Hmm... a heater would probably be a good idea, especially this year. But it'll probably make it way too hot during the day. Now if you can find an outdoor heater that you can attach a timer to (ie electric) and/or one with a built in thermostat, then you'd be sitting pretty.
