The method I use and highly recommend for shade is a Monkey Hut http://www.chromatest.net/Lovemonkey/
They are cheap, durable, and easily made from common materials. Aside from the upright poles they are fairly compact for shipping and storage.
I pre assemble the center connectors and UPS all the parts except the poles to my hotel. This includes the preassembled connectors, duct tape, tarp, bungee balls, ratchet straps, hacksaw, and rebar (rebar and hacksaw is optional and can also be picked up when you buy the poles if you want to save on shipping cost).
I fly in, rent a vehicle, pick up my stuff from the hotel and hit Home depot for the 10 foot poles. Aside from wrapping one end of the poles with duct tape and cutting the roof peak pole in half there is little to do but assemble it in place.
My monkey hut has survived 2 burns and several camping trips with no damage other than 2 bent pieces of rebar. I highly recommend it.
This photo shows it on the last day of its second burn:
I only use it for lounging and cooler shade so mine is 10 feet long, if you plan to put a tent inside, a 20 foot length would be better.
If you do go this route, follow the monkey hut instructions precisely - they work perfectly as is. Most of the problems I've seen with huts was due to trying to insert the pipes directly into connectors rather than sleeving them (connectors do not have enough contact area to withstand the stress).
