We are taking that out on the San Juan next week. Granted, there will be three other boats, but the Mini will be carrying her share of the load. We'll generally have two people in the boat and the rest of the space will be used for gear. I'll post some more pictures when we get back with what we ended up carrying, but if you pack light, you should have plenty of room. I could easilly see putting a tent and 2 sleeping bags in the back, a couple water bottles on the sides next to the cooler, a couple of small dry bags next to the dry box, etc. We probably won't load it up too much because of the other boats on the trip and the low water, but I can see taking this on multi-days, at least shorter ones, without any other boats on the trip.
As for R2ing, we took it out last year after we got it, and it was a blast! My wife and I R2ed it with the kids along for the ride. I look forward to a lot more of that. It's one of the reasons I bought it, because we got tired of hauling the larger oar rig to the river for day trips on the smaller stuff (like Shoshone). Now we can throw it all in the back of the truck, and take the kids on a moments notice really. The rowing setup was almost an after thought, as my kids really wanted it so they had something easier to row.
Everyone has an opinion on the "right" boat to buy, but if you have your eyes on this one, I wouldn't hesitate. I say go for it.
