From the description of yourselves, I don't think you'll have any issues. However, I'm biased as I love my 28 breeze. We came from 17 years of sailboating so we were not strangers to close quarters. When we sold the boat, we bought a 25 ft Reyo - it was a little cramped for the two of us and a large dog. We quickly traded for a Serrano 31 - the room was great but the layout did not make good use of it. We traded that for our current Breeze and finally think we got it right. As an engineer myself, I feel the Tiffin guys really did a great job of optimizing every inch. Also, (only owned it 3 months), the quality and fit of everything impresses me. The biggest draw to me is that I really feel safe driving this rig, especially in the mountains. The Brakes are phenomenal. This summer we're picking up 3 grandkids (13, 11 and 10) for an extended journey.
