Having bought and sold a fair number of tents I am looking for the perfect solution for one I have become confused and fed up.So can I enlist the experience of you all in trying to find a tent to meet my needs please?

One person but need the space of a 4 man tent
Very easy to erect
Full height
No poles to thread through (I have an Outwell Arizona at present,great tent hard for one to erect)
Sewn everything
Double skin(do not like condensation showers)
Need bedroom and porch/living space
No pop ups (bad experience with 4.1 Quechua!
That's it folks.
PS tried sleeping in the car but the alarm went off when I turned over!

Kampa Brean 4 Air Classic. Not double skinned, but polycotton so condensation shouldn't be an issue.
