I have never done this but I am thinking you could get a 16 foot cattle panel with the 6x6 inch openings. Bend it in a half circle and grow the tomatoes over it. They might even hang down for easy picking. You could call it the tunnel of tomatoes.
They are about $25.00 in Dallas and they last forever.

Something cheaper & easier to cut - handle is concrete reinforcing wire. You can get it about 6' wide by 20 to 40' long in a roll at Lowes or Home depot. Cut it to make the diameter you need. Best I can remember is the the holes are 6*6".

Good add, the wire is less expensive and cuts easily. I make all my tomato cages out of it. I don't know if Zipper can use a whole roll.
The cattle panel looks nicer, is very sturdy and doesn't rust. If you bend it into an arc you don't have to cut it. When the season is over you can easily store it. I wish I could find a creative way to store my 30+ round tomato cages.
I guess Zipper has a couple of ideas to think about.
