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.

Any deals out there on a pop-up sukkah?
Just build your own with 1/4 inch EMT conduit

any reason this won't work?

How would you attach schach here?

Also, as far as I know, sukkah walls must have some form of rigidity, hench the braces around three sides of the pop-up sukkah. These obviously don't have that.

Is there a sukkah that can fit in a van for traveling? Not a pop-up, a normal size sukkah.

Something like telescopic poles perhaps?

Anyone ever use?

I don't see the size of the poles unassembled anywhere?

Other site seems much better for travel from what I see.

You can just get inch EMT conduit cut to the max length that works for your van, then get connectors etc as needed

I have seen a travel sukah using canvas, I can't find it online. I only see the pop up ones.

Has anyone seen something using canvas for travel? Fits 2 ppl.
