Same advise. I recently bought the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 4 tent and it's great. 

- packs light apprx 5 1/2 lbs

- easy and fast set up (color coded)

- roomy inside: Head room and floor room

- spacy vestibule for gear

- 2 zipper doors for easy in/out

Just one trip with it so far. We had 3 grown men and no one felt cramped inside.

I went with the footprint and happy with the decision. The tent clips into it.

Hope that helps.
