OK Randy I will be waiting for those arbor pics, sounds interesting

I made an arbor by bending  two 1/2 inch pvc's  and attaching them to  parallel stakes with plumbers tape. I put horse wire between them.  The vines have covered them and you can't see the pvc or stakes any more.  I'll try to post pictures.

Don't know about inexpensive since you would have to get at least 5 or 6 of the rectangles to make an arbor or buy a roll and they are really expensive.

Jon and Yvonne also called concrete reinforcement wire. I use it to make tomato cages or string it up to grow peas up. It does rust you could probably spray paint it.
