I can't compare the two as I've never used a Seedhouse, but I've used both the Lunar Solo and Duo models. The Solo is a great single person tent, but I prefer a tarp where possible. Being that you prefer the tent, the Solo will suit you well for solo use. For two people, I'd suggest finding another option as the Duo just didn't seem near as solid in high winds as the Solo. I'm in TN also, but my trips have been around Big South Fork for hiking and solitude, and down by Tim's Ford Park when trying to get my trout fix. With the onset of winter, fewer bugs will be a nuisance, so it's a good time to consider a tarp if you're curious. If not, stick with your tent choices and enjoy the time out!
