I have been considering purchasing a new 4 season shelter for 2-3 person use. I have been using a Go-Lite shangri-la 4 for some time, but I find that it's too cramped for 2 people in the winter, and the sloping sides really cut into the useable floor space.
I am considering getting a semi-free standing shelter such as the Hilleberg Nallo 4GT, as I believe the tubular design and more vertical walls would give a bit more space inside. Also, when I need to have the option of a floored shelter (car camping with my girlfriend, bugs, etc) I can use the removable inner tent, making it a bit more versatile.
Does anyone have any experience with these shelters? I am thinking the 4 person with GT vestibule could be nicely modified to take a wood stove, and may give plenty of room for sitting inside, although not standing.
I read a review here that seemed to be favorable, and had some pretty promising weight specs (w/o the inner tent, of course)
Right now I'm also in the process of finding that perfect 2-3 person shelter (4 in a pinch). I've read with interest the comments on this thread as well as the BPL review of the Nallo you provided the link to. I'm curious to know where your search for a new tent led you. Have you found what you were seeking?
Right now I'm leaning towards a Hilleberg Keron 4. I'm thinking that with 2 vestibules I would not need the GT option.
Anything you learned in the process of your search or information sources you found would be much appreciated if you were to share it.
