Welcome to the Forum.  Thanks for the steel info - I'm going to visit a supplier's drop shelves today or tomorrow.

Do you already have the C channel?  If it is what you have, go with it.  However, in my experience, it is not as stiff as box steel - it can twist - though 7" is pretty stout and very heavy!  I made mine from 2x4x.  If I were to do it again, I'd only go with 3/16" wall.
