Do conduct a search on "Ham" or "Amateur Radio" - there are several threads on here regarding using the aluminum bullet as a ham shack. Issues like antenna mounts, through-hull fittings for coax, etc.

And there's one big difference between trailers and ships: ships are a lot like airplanes ... when the space starts to seem small, it's darned hard to go outside for a hike! But with a trailer, they're meant to take to places where you WANT to be outside in the first place, so at least in good weather, the interior size is not too important.

In good weather on my boat I jump in the water, or walk along the dock, beach or make friends on the boat next door and hop aboard there.

My stock advice, husband to husband. It's not about convincing; it's about listening. Whatever you eventually decide, I suggest it will go better if you give your wife a full opportunity to discuss all of her hopes and fears. Whatever you decide, it will be as a couple.

Lets trade wives, mine thinks the 28 is too small!!

Actually, I think the fellow that suggested "listening" had the key to an easy, relaxing drive.. Whatever decision you make, if it's made as a couple, will contribute to the "easy, relaxing drive"

Very few combinations have this done optimally and most are done poorly.

A high end hitch like the Hensley would give you added safety and drive ability.
