I'm with Steingar on the sturdy, low profile tent thing. I've been through some really nasty storms there and haven't had a tent collapse or leak yet. On the other hand, I've gotten up after an overnight storm and seen all of my neighbors with Coleman family camping tents carrying their broken tents to the dumpster and turning their airplane into a drying rack for all of their crap. It ain't worth it. On the other, other, hand (compared to Steingar), I've never had a camping pad leak (OK, once when i loaned one to a buddy, who's kid apparently used it as a trampoline.). They sleep well and would keep you out of any minor water that entered the tent.
