Im really thinking about pulling the trigger on the Rainbow.

It's roomy, light, affordable, and can be free standing with trek poles. Or you can use trek poles for more support at the center strut.

I saw one review of the Rainbow where someone had trouble with seam sealing. Any of you guys have any problems with the seams?

Just as with any sil tent it takes a little time just make sure you get all the seams
including the sides and around the vent.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
