Tent required for 5 month South America trip

Update: We bought the Hilleberg Namatj 3GT and footprint.

I have been looking for a tent to take with us for a 5 month cycle trip through South America on our tandem. This is just a collection of the tents I am considering. Our requirements are:

1. Sleep two comfortably ( we are short at 172cm, 5’8″ and 152cm, 5’0″ )
2. Have a porch area for storing panniers and giving us space to relax if it is raining and we are stuck in the tent
3. Able to withstand 5 months of use
4. Able to stand up to strong winds
5. Ideally bug net on inner and outer tent doors

Under consideration:

Having checked out the nallo 2 GT, nallo 3 GT and Nammatj 3 GT I think we are going to get the Nammatj 3 GT. The extra head room swung it for me and hopefully is worth the weight penalty over the nallo 3 GT (0.7kg difference). Other cycle tourists using the Nammatj 3 GT

Not suitable Robens Voyager 3EX RRP £229 - 4.1Kg - HH 5000mm flysheet, 10000mm floor - looked like the perfect low price touring tent until I read on their website that in answer to the FAQ of "Can we use our Robens tent for more than a month at a time?" they say "Robens manufactures tents for normal use and they are not designed or tested for use over extended periods."
