I just got back from HD with four ten foot lengths of 1/2 PVC and the various connectors I plan to use to make a stronger frame (I hope). I'm using a four way connector at the top to tie the four lengths together. At the end of each length I'm putting a T through which I can run a small piece of rope to be used to put the stake through. The PVC frame will piggyback the actual tent frame. Once staked in place I'll use tie wraps to connect the actual tent poles to the PVC. My hopes are that this will keep the tent from collapsing in upon itself in the wind. I'm using Playa Staples to hold everything down. Wish me luck.
