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.

No. Read it again. He explicitly says that the width and length is 7*7 without the step.
Correct. That was exactly my point?

Anyone have a good idea for turning a pergola into a sukkah? Looking for walls specifically that would be nice and breathable.

Size is around 16x20

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

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Veranda-0-2-in-x-48-in-x-8-ft-Wicker-Vinyl-Classic-Diamond-Lattice-73003479/202847970 ($31.69) or white vinyl https://www.homedepot.com/p/Gridworx-0-125-in-x-48-in-x-8-ft-White-Privacy-Plastic-Lattice-2-Pack-64871/303172754 ($82.95)
Although the lattice is possibly easier and nicer looking, you could make a cheaper, more labor intensive "wall" by just screwing 1x2 woods vertically each less than 9.6 inches apart around the pergola.

My thoughts is that they should make their website lighter, takes me very long to load in mobile
