I've built one the last 2 years and are going to forgo on one this year. Waay too much work and time
The time is annoying but after a few tries, I have found what works and now takes less then an hour to put up. Personally that's worth it.

Probably depends on the size of the sukkah... Mine is an 8x20

Because.. in middle eastern countries, where the Sefardim come from, it rarely rains on Sukkos ( think Israel..  )
However in Europe , were Ashkenazim originate, It rains on Sukkos..
Your probably right

Wow.
It's not so crazy. I just role the tarp the shorter way... Makes things much simpler.

But if the Sukkah is 19x22, there's not much of a shorter way.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Build a new sukka... Jk
Yea your right. You would need a slightly larger incline, and some support to make sure it roles properly.

Or just forgo the whole thing, until I can figure out something.

Figuring out doesn't come from forgoing it... It's trial and error.

Not worth the effort at this point in my life. Don't forget that for me it's only something to be used when the Sukkah is not in use.

Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

Much better! 10 is a little skinny for a table... It's just just making it.
