Who are you camping with? Is there anychance that you could buy a tent and have it drop shipped to them. Maybe they would be willing to store it for you. And it would be your Burning Man tent. Wouldn't really solve the "use the rest of the year problem."
Maybe ask C.F.M. what she uses.
For everything BUT BM I use an Ez-Up. I love it. I will never camp in a tent again.
I am VERY fortunate to have wonderful, kind and generous campmates who loan me a canvas tent for BM.
I still like looking at them, though. You can go to the ol' blog
and look through the "Tents" category.
I honestly don't know what I'd have gone with, had it not been for my campmates. Trying to figure out a tent I could fly with last year was no fun.
And you can check odd sizes onto a flight; you don't have to be able to pack it into a suitcase.
Tents are such a personal thing. I know people who used the same $40 Coleman for eight years, and people who had a $350 one bust up the first time.
