I like the idea, but I would worry about that design in high winds. I had a bad experience with a 3-person Coleman half-pipe tent I owned years ago. I never had it cave in or fall apart, but it would flap in the wind something awful and was too noisy to concentrate on anything but when the thing might be coming down on our head. If it can be staked down right, it looks like it would work though. 13-ish pounds dry? ouch.
