That's about size of my Eureka tent, I'm on me 2nd of them, me & missus toured Italy for many years with the first, she only does car camping now, just the odd bike rally. My Eureka is on the left, bought in '99, it disintegrated in 2016, got very crispy, too much sun.



Picos? On the road to Fuente de?

Nah m8, Vols just outside Innsbruck. Not a great campsite, just handy stopover on our way home from Italy. We should have gone to the Picos last year, amended to later this year, likely be next year now.

Anyyyhoooooo...  :451:

Back to topic. 'Fraid I can't find photo's of the tent on 't' Tiger but here's the tent I use. It's a Vango Tour 200. Very similar to the Redvers Adventure tent but waaaayyyyy cheaper.
the inner tent is big enough for a double air mattress and the front bit is big enough to get the bike in For why I don't know) or use as a sitting room/cooking area in bad weather.
AND it packs to quite a decent size.

Had it since 2015 and used it at least twice a year since then. 
Not had it leak, rip or collapse. I've had a couple of poles snap in bad weather but they are easy enough to replace.



I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.
