Long term tent camper, me....... and I've got a few suggestions:

First, carry the biggest tent you can. Small size and compactness is attractive, until being inside "small and compact" during a three day rainstorm. If at all possible, I'd suggest a four-person tent for two, and a two-person tent for one. My opinion only, of course......

Specific models:

Eureka Timberlines, 2-person or 4-person, $160, Campmor

R.E.I. Half-Dome, 2-person, $160, R.E.I.

A medium priced backpacking tent is sufficient; 4-season tents or mountaineering tents are overkill.... unless you are trying to get your Goldwing up the Northeast Ridge of Mt. Everest......
