Hmmm... Let's see.... Let's say the queen will be 6' long, and the two singles either in bunk bed
or side by side is another 6'. Dry sink... Let's be extravagant and say 2'. Lounging couches.... Let's just keep it neat and say another 6', and oh yeah, the place for bicycles, PAs, and guitars... Hmmm... Let's just go wild and say we can squeeze them across from the sink. So that puts them at about 20' from tip to tail.
Eight or nine window flat nose.... Each window being about 26" will give you about 19'6". For the sake of argument let's just say that you've got one of those eight or nine window flat noses with 20' of inner space from front to rear, and here on paper it all fits neatly inside... In the REAL world, it's just going to be tight... Too tight for my old bones... I think a 66 PAX will be as small as I think you'll want to go... But like all the bad girls say... Bigger IS better...
Decide what your space requirements are and focus your search on that. It's VERY hard to stuff 10 pounds of crap in a five pound bag. So I suggest you go for the 10 pound bag...
Another suggestion is go to some parking lot and chalk out the outline of what you eye ball to be a "comfortable" arrangement. Oh, and don't forget to take into consideration the thickness of any walls you may want to erect, those 2"-3" walls add up fast and take it from there...
Best of luck, and welcome aboard!
