I didn't even look at the Outfitter. I wanted the Oasis from the beginning of my search of Mirage Drive boats. It fitted my wants from a tandem kayak.
As for activities, my wife and I have a travel trailer and enjoy cycling. We usually travel to places and hop on our bikes and see the sights from the saddle. Now we have a kayak to add into the mix. Here's a picture of our rig. Nothing fancy, but we do have mucho fun.
As for our crew, my wife and I are similar in size to you and your wife. Also in the mix is our dog. She's a small (15 lbs) terrier mix. The specs of the Oasis just seemed more appropriate for us.
To help you make your decision, the only advice is to follow your instinct. You know your activity choices, physical needs, athletic abilities, etc. Follow your instinct.
Oh, and test drive every boat you can. When my wife and I went for a test drive on the Oasis, we were sold.
