I cant answer your questions concerning the fit on your Bene 361, however our 280LX when deflated is pretty manageable with the tubes folding pretty well. Keep in mind the transom is fixed, a good thing IMO.
We sail the Chesapeake as well, and purchased our 280LX last year, we're very pleased with it. That said, we probably should have purchased the 315 considering its usually four of us, two adults + two small children. With the 280LX and a 9.8 we just barely get it to plane. With 5 people I would consider the 350LX if I we're you, I think you would be happier if the ability to plane and more stable ride is important to you? Our 280 tows well, but we keep it on the davit most of the time.
FWIW, I had a Avon Inflate Floor previously, the Achilles + the RIB is by far a better boat...hands down, no question. I would never buy another Avon
