Perhaps the best approach would be to get to the point where the roof and canvas are rough built, then experiment and see. I suspect, with a little care watching the weight of your roof build, that you will be able to lift it easily by hand. Two simple prop rods at the rear and a couple of well placed bungees in the rear corners would probably do the job and work more reliably. Just my $0.02.
I recall (vaguely... not well enough to cite a name) one particular build with a lifting lid that used a bungee loop all around the mid point of the canvas that acted like a cincher.
