Default Rainsong Vintage Dread opinion?

I live full time on my boat and prefer the worry free aspect of carbon fiber.
I currently have a Composite Accoustics Legacy and an Eastman e2om rosewood and spruce.
I need to get down to one guitar.
I love the sound of my Legacy, but it is very heavy and i am not fond of the neck.
I am considering trading both for a new Rainson Vintage series dreadnought.
Has any one played one?
Thoughts please?
Couple of CF guitars, Couple of wood guitars
Bunch of other stuff.

I owned one of the first ones sold, and really liked it. I foolishly sold it in a fit of "I want something else," but it could have easily been my only acoustic. (Actually, I sold it when I got my Rainsong V-JM1100N2 whose larger sound I prefer.) Great sound and playability and no worries about temperature/humidity maintenance and changes. What's not to like???

No direct experience with the RS Vintage dread - yet! I'm looking for one with a short scale neck but coming up short so I'm seriously considering ordering a custom one as RainSong will do a short scale neck on any guitar at no extra charge. But you will have to wait 8-12 weeks at last check.

I do have direct experience with the RainSong Nashville OM Shorty that I can attest is a wonderful instrument. It has quickly become my go-to instrument and could easily be my one-and-only if I decided to go that route. It ticks all the boxes for my needs.
