It would appear H15's have survived [http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs642.snc4/60205_463122598071_546703071_6512076_6776629_n.jpg at Burning Man], and were playa tested in the nasty 2012 winds. Even the H15's made with 1" thick panels stood solidly. FYI, Julie Danger camps in an H15 made with 1" thick panels...but really, 1.5 thick panels would be better for this increased height. For the ''best'' structural stability, you would stagger the 2' addition top and bottom when you build the walls, and it would still ship in the 4'x8' stack. However, that's a lot of extra on-playa work that no one is willing to do...if you can ship and store the yurt in a 6x8' stack, definitely stagger each wall section. If you're going to be lazy and make 4 pre-folded wall sections, be sure that your 2x8' wall additions are staggered (see PDF 'front and back view').
