dude, just buy nice stuff and use it. outdoor gear is not an investment, it is meant to get worn out.
go ahead, wear out a tent, i dare ya.
get a nice one, then maybe buy another nice one.
plenty of resons to have more than one. there are different kinds of tents for different types of camping, so a nice big car camping tent is nice to have, and so is a nice, ultralight but roomy bike camping tent for summer, and a stouter one for fall and winter, and a tiny tent for emergencys or summer overnighters.....and what if you want to do some winter expeditions in Greenland or Colorado?
i have at owned, used, sold and lost at least 15 tents over the years, and will probably own more in the future. i have probably six tents/ shelter systems in the closet right now!
buy quality. don't go cheap unluss you already are that way.
