The idea is sound, but if just for your gear, perhaps a water-proof duffel-bag/stuff-sac (end folds over and rolls up to close), like those used for canoeing, would do the job? Stake that down in the shade of the 8-man tent.
But, if you do get a small barely two-man tent, low to the ground to shed wind, then if you need some space or alone time, or there's drama in the 8-man tent, you can cuddle up with your gear in that tent. You can likely setup such a tent in at least partial shade of that 8-man tent.
