Need some help selecting a bugtent, not finding many options!

Chris - yes, hard to say. But on www.moontrail, there is 3 pads in there with room some room above. The Sildome is huge. Unless I am referring to the wrong ID bug net - sorry if I am.

Thermarest Trail?
I used the BMW TorsoLite for years and am a dedicated side sleeper. No issues whatsoever with cold shoulders or being uncomfortable. Now that I think about it, I used the Gossamer Gear Torso Pad ...

Osprey Atmos 50 Mod
Modifying it would be extensive, I would think. Sell it and get a pack that keeps the load against your back where it should be. Avoid the marketing hype.

Tough company to deal with. Most of their stock they drop ship direct from the manufacturer so although you may see something and put it in your cart and order it, it will not be currently available....
