    I think the Harrison tent looks like a good option. The Darkroom Tents are a bit over kill for me.

    Have fun cleaning up the mess. Never have I done tray processing without a few spills. These changing tent are not made with them getting wet in mind. Better you should get a daylight tank for your 4x5 sheets and learn to use it. I use the CombiPlan and it works great for me.

    I'd recommend using a large tray in the bottom of the tent. That way, if there are spills, there would be a chance that they would end up in the tray, rather than the tent fabric itself.

    £70 is a bargain

    The regular size might be a little snug but I am sure you will manage

    Have plenty of towels on stand-by - you might just need them

    You might also want to investigate putting a towel/something absorbent in the bottom of the tent to take care of the odd splash

    I'd also give the nod to Matt King's recommendation for a larger tray to hold all the things that can slop.
