Sounds like the OP has solved his dilemma. That looks like a great tent! This year I picked up a Double Rainbow from Tarptent. Had the pleasure of picking it up in person in Grass Valley, where the Tarptent trolls were hard at work.

I got this 2-person tent to serve as a very comfortable solo shelter, or workable tent for me and the hunny. So far I've only used it in mild weather on a 5-day bike tour, but very happy so far. Light weight, packs and compresses well, setup and takedown are super quick. Construction seems good, features are well thought out. I like things like lightweight zippers that are not overbuilt, and are well suited to the task. Only drag was having to seal the seams myself, but no big deal. Now I know it was done right. A buddy of mine picked up a solo Contrail, and loves it as well.
