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.

And just leave them on the wall year to year? Or remove them each year?
pull them out with a pliers and try to staple them in the same spot next year
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Is it generally safe for zip ties to go around the light fixture to hold it up.

Travel sukah?
The only way it stays up is with an air pump, which means it's not עומד ברוח מצויה....

It’s probably not strong enough to hold up the schach, but sweet idea ;D

It seems that one of the only sturdy travel sukas is the one by sukah center that costs $300… would it not be cheaper (other than the time to design a frame) to use a 3d printer to print it?

Are you sure about that. To me its an interesting shaila.
My walls only are held up because of gravity, friction, and other forces of nature. What about a wall that relies on electricity, air pressure, magnetism, or other forces to remain standing. Would that be kosher?

Figure I'll ask this now for next year. Best recommendation for comfortable sukkah bed? Cots were uncomfortable and got worse over time, air mattresses have a tendency to lose air overnight

I never had a good experience with cots or air mattresses either. Currently I have a very old mattress that is specifically for the sukka. I put a memory foam topper on it and its very comfortable. During the year I just keep it under one of the beds in my house. I find it to be a very good setup.

Safety pins?

Command Picture Hanging Strips
Always falling off.

I tried a tagging gun & so far this worked the best.
