Ross and Ashlyne;
We've tried most all RV types, with the exception of 5er's.
Now retired, we use our SMB primarily for towing our TT.
Still whenever we're on the road we do drop the trailer and go SMB'ing for several days at a time.
Although most of the time it's me and my "Trophy Bride" we occasionally take the grandkids along.
We've not spent a great amount of time with them in the SMB, usually just towing the tt to a site, but it could become overwhelming if confined in bad weather.
Although we love our SMB, in Your circumstances I wouldn't rule out a "Poptop" truck camper as a compromise.
