Does someone uses/prefer 78.75″ (2.0m) W x 98.4″ (2.5m) L instead of 98.4″ (2.5m) W x 98.4″ (2.5m) L, awnings ? Personally i like that shorter tent has same size as my roof rack. But still can't decide what size to buy. I think that size of the room is enough for 2-4 persons to sit inside and for 2 to sleep. As for shade i think it is enough to use extender, and this is more effective than 0.5 meters of awning. But same time those 0.5 are not so good in forest or could bring additional noise at highway.
