Default Lund Fury or Mirrocraft troller

Hello everyone, I'm in the market for a boat but my storage space is limited. I have a max storage length of about 19'4" and width of about 7'3". I have narrowed my search down to the Lund fury 1400 which is14'9" and a mirrocraft troller 16'0 both beams at 70".
I really wanted the alumacraft escape but just wouldn't fit.....
So, I was wondering if anyone had and experience with either of these boats or suggest another make/model.
I mainly fish mazonia, wolf lake, Lake Sara, and about 10 days in UP or Northwoods lakes.
I would like to fish heideke or Braidwood also....

No experience with either model, but I had a Mirrocraft for 9 years, and I'm on year 7 with my Lund. Mirrocraft makes a good but but it's no Lund.

I'd go for the largest boat that fits your space.. The difference between a 14.5 footer and 16 footer are huge in anything but glass conditions..

I would go with the Lund, I believe when you decide to sell it will be much easier and more desirable... The body’s of water 💦 that you are fishing will be a great match for the Lund... Good luck with your decision...

Thanks for the input, I am leaning toward the Lund. Not that I'm too lazy to drive, but the nearest Mirrocraft dealer is a little over 2 hours... and if any warrant work needed to be done, I would dread the drives... I have 3 Lund dealers from 20 minutes to an hour from me....
I wish I could just expand my storage, but that is not an option. Since I fish 65% wet wading by choice, I think that the times I do fish by boat I will be OK in the 14'9" Fury, I'm coming from a 16" john boat that is pretty narrow beam.... but, still I have time to keep researching.
