Yes - I suggest that you just do mock-ups to test first, without worrying too much about 'getting things right' (eg the underlying framework) for the final one.

If you expect to have to try 4-5 different iterations, then you won't lock yourself into something that may well not be so good.

I'd probably start with bent steel tube (cheapest small diameter I can find) as the frame, and use tape and plastic corrugated board as the outer cover.
