If I cut out the elastic and hooks I probably wouldn't miss them. I also haven't had it out in winter conditions either though. I may change my mind later this winter. Time will tell.
That's what I was thinking as well.... to limit the number of hooks or at least to add some length to them if I need to keep the sides up.
