We are biased of course - but we think the BH is the best option for a family. If gives maximum flexibility to accommodate different sleep patterns.
I get up early - I can move around the trailer, make breakfast, and sit at the table while everybody else is still asleep.
We have 2 kids (10 and 12) - they have their own space with their own favourite sleep items that never need to move. If they want to go to bed early, they can.
Convertible sleep spaces put everybody onto the same schedule.
We moved up from a 20' SOB to the 30' BH - no towing issues other than a bit harder to find camping locations. I doubt you will notice any performance difference between the 28' and 30' BH.
Hard to get around the cost however - unless you look for an older BH.
