Standard or Large??

Just depends really. I chose the little one really just to stop the rain getting in the porch area of the diablo as practically half the porch floor would end up wet and dead space. Also with the diablo it is a large tent I did think it would make it TOO big, but looking at some photos just makes the whole porch look long.

We have a day tent for cooking in so porch wouldn't be used for that, and if we used our smaller tent more (vango venture) then would chose the larger version and maybe cook in there instead of the day tent.

The sun shelter fitted both the diablo and the venture although the elastic part did pop off one side of the venture during bad weather.

I've looked at some of the pics on this website of porch/shelters and maybe there is something there that comes inbetween size?? http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/tents/search.asp?m=0&b=0&t=27&g=0&p=0&searchspec=Search+by+spec

both from nearly new tents on ebay where i got ours from. 20 and 28 plus 5 postage.

you probably won't be able to use the side door if your Killington has one (ours is the old diablo so doesn't) as the guy rope will cut diagnally across it (may be able to play with it so you can but just so you know before you buy) but being able to leave the main door open is major bonus.

this is our standard sized one but just seen on ebay someone with the large but they have put the elasticated part over the next section futher back, so doesn't look too long (doh never thought of that)

probably best of both worlds???
