Hmmm, she has probably not seen our yurt:-)

Her suggestions are all very good, and you should keep them in mind.  
There are a few comments that I would like to add:

Consider why you want a pavilion:  Our yurt is a fantastic camping 
pavilion, but it really makes a lousy list-side pavilion.

Consider where you will be camping, weather wise:  A square pavilion 
looks nice, but if you do a lot of camping in windy areas, you will 
discover that they also make great sails:-(
