If you know you want a HH then sales are worth it. If not.. then they show up fairly regularly on the used market. I am a HH advocate but not to the exclusion of others. If you are a car camper you might want to consider something the Warbonnet Traveler and the add-on bug net. I hear good things about them but I think they would be heavier together than some other rigs.
Hennessy has that bottom entry which people have mixed reactions to. I love it because it solves some mobility issues I have. A lot of people hate it. There are some in between who tolerate it until the have the zipper mods done on the HH and never use it again except when it is really pouring rain and they can stay clear of the tarp.. or the bugs are thicker than fleas on a gorilla.
Don't rush the decision. Get to a group hang and see what's out there. There's one coming up in Nov in MD. You would have the chance to see just about every model around and some that are absolutely one of a kind.
