I have a mahoosive 8 man tent that I absolutely love thus

However, it's a bugger to put up/fold up for a weekend.

I'm looking for something cheap, 4/5 man that we can take away for weekends off the cuff, also could take away midweek with a girlfriend and kids no men so must be easy to put up. Could even think about being a bit more minimalist. As it is am on cusp of glamping.

I quite fancy the Vango Juno but worried about hydrostatic head (MY tent has 5000 so very spoilt in that regard).

Any very clever ladies out there with ideas?

Suncamp Evolutions, they come in variety of sizes. Seen a few at shows this year and they're nice.

We have the older version of the khyam Winnipeg for family weekending and touring. The only real difference is the Winnipeg has SIG. I can just about get ours up by myself. Each sleeping area is generous for 2, many brands only seem to give you 60 to 65cm per person.

I've never seen a Jamet tent but these both look like good weekend tents.

I was very tempted by a Vango Juno 300 for camping in the garden and nearly ordered on online. Then I saw one at a show, thought it looked tight for 3, then realized I was looking at the 500! I'd like to see one with actual mats laid out. Decided it wasn't for us for several reasons. I'd suggest seeing one in the flesh. They do look sweet tho.

You couldn't get much quicker to pitch than this
