I need to put my 5 cents in here, not 2 cents because my Lady and I
make pavilions. The aluminum framed pavilions are generally out of a
nylon stretch knit. The stretch is what keeps the frame together. You
can make a regular fabric cover to attach to the knit. For those who
want to know $300 can get you a 15' x 18' pavilion from us (not
including poles, line and stakes.) Or you can make your own 10' x 15'
for about $150, this is canvas top with all the hardware. The major
thing with making your own is you need an all metal parts sewing
machine for sewing heavy fabrics (I've burned up a newer plastic parts
machine.) I am planning on teaching a class on period tents and
pavilions at the Northern Regional event next Feb.
