Going from 70 to 75 inches for a small tube is in itself no big deal but I like the idea of raising the trunions up. Maybe a box that hindges up on piano hindges and locks together with those pins. It would make the base wider in terms of storage but it should be pretty strong when all four sides fold up and pin together.

Good Idea Bob,
-Rick
