Exclamation Help!! Need Your Opinion For A Sleeper!

I'm thinking about doing what Nickslick did! I guess the age (especially my wife, she's 9 months older than me) is starting to show and she is pushing for the idea of getting a boat to sleep on. She wants to get out of the Texaasss heat/sun into the A/C so that kinda sets the length to more like 26'. I say I need a genset to run it unless I just plug into shore power. I don't run in anything more than the manmade lakes around here. I personally think the Rinker brand of boat is an impressive one for the money with all that is included. I am coming across used ones, and some of the 28' have twin 4.6 power. I'm looking for some input from anyone as far as good/bad about this brand!

Rinker has alot of room and bang for the buck. I know several people that own them and really do like them.

We've got Rinker on our short list - lots of boat for the money, without a lot of the "fluff". Personally, I don't really care if there is tile in the head or gold colored vinyl pinstriping...

Four Winns also builds an impressive boat for not too much $$.

I've got a Four Winns 28' myself... Very nice boat. Got twin Volvo Penta's w/Duo prop. Handles well and sleeps very nice - great for nights on the lake!

Hubby has a Warlock 25WC, so we get the best of both worlds... ;-)
