It's not ideal, but I lived out of it just fine for two weeks. It's long enough that for me (I'm 6'0") that I could stuff all of my gear at one end of the tent and still have enough room to sleep.
I put SE720 cases on my SV with SW-Motech racks. I have a Eureka Apex 2XT that fits in the side case. Plenty roomy with the dual doors and dual vestibules. I put all the gear in the back vestibule and put a case with clothes, toiletries, etc. by the back door.

There's a new version of the Apex 2XT and I'm not sure if the poles are still the same length or not. I know the version before mine packed a little shorter.
