Why did you select this model? Our driveway restrictions at the time meant it had to be 25ft or less. We have one child. We wanted the sofa bed in the window so he could sleep in and we could still sit at the dinette and have our morning coffee without waking him. We also liked that he could use the large pull out table for games without impacting my ability to make or serve meals.
