6'4 and 5'1...is there a tent out there for us?

I have since acquired a 6'4 boyfriend (at 5'1, it's important to have someone for those high shelves) and he'd probably appreciate something that he can fit more than his legs into.
Having our own tents is definitely an option, so if you have suggestions for a 2 person long enough for him I'd really appreciate it! Preferably though, we'll find a 3 or 4 person and can split the weight between us. Will be used for a distance walk (Great Glen Way! Oh yes, yes I am excited), canoe trips, and the occasional hike/camp on weekends.
Budget is a thing, nothing above 200 (though ideally a good chunk less). Very very happy to buy used.

It was me that suggested the Blade for your WHW trip.
Have you tried the Blade 200?
I'm 6ft and find there's loads of room.
Mine is on eBay at the moment... £90. Never used as I decided to throw money at a ultralight.

My new 'tent' is an Autocruise Wentworth from 2001. The bed is 6'3" x 6'11" which might be big enough for your relatives.
