I'd be going with just a light weight tarp to keep the dew off, set up with a few sticks and string, a basic mat, or mattress if you've got the room, and another tarp to 'wrap' yourself in if it does start to rain. And of course a sleeping bag.
But if I had to choose between your option 1 or 2, i'd go 2. Swags are just such less hassle than even a hiking tent, and I'm pretty sure you can get compact swags.

So when are you moving the East Coast?
