I have a Vango Omega 350 which I find very good. About 5kg in weight, poles small enough to fit in Honda 45l topbox, porch is nearly as big as tent. Good size for 2 but would need to intimate for 3, the porch groundsheet is detatchable which is handy if site very muddy and for cleaning. Has a HH of 5000 and very easy to erect on your own, used mine a couple of times January / February in snow and cold conditions without drama. Hope this helps

What I'd like is a big dome or tunnel porch that I can stand in with a small two-man bedroom. I'd like it small and light.

If the budget allows then these are the bollocks... i can stand up in Stuarts and either bedroom can be left out for extra room, very pricey though, looking at about £600+.

We use a Eurohike Avon, bought half price for £40 from Millets, 3 man, big enough porch for both of us to sit in and eat if the weather's poor. On its second yr and going strong!
I don't believe in spending a fortune on a tent, we change ours every couple of yrs. Nice and fresh!

Second hand exped big bear. You can stand up in it and park the bike in it if needed.

Oooh! tempted.

Be interested to see the 2-man version, which comes in lighter than my Coleman Phad 2-mad tent and would not require an awning

Terra Nova Laser Space 2 - www.craigdonmountainsports.com

Mind you, the 5 would be lighter than the tent and awning and be a huge space, especially if you didn't even take the 3-man bedroom.

I've got an Igloo and a Biker. Have to say I prefer the Biker, mainly because of the porch. I can't be bothered putting tents up the old fashioned way any more, had enough years of threading poles etc, so other makes are out for me. The Biker has less room inside the sleeping bit than the Igloo though, I always leave the inner door open so doesn't bother me too much, I just treat it as one big tent rather than two parts.

The Kyham groundsheet is well worth having. I leave a little bit of bare ground inside my porch though and peg my cooker down so it can't be knocked over or wobble and lose a pot/pan of food as has happened in the past.
