I've done a lot of kayak camping in kayaks that were 12'10", 14'6", and 15'6". The hatch volume of those three kayaks was in the reverse order, with the 12.10 having the largest volume and the 15.5 having the smallest volume. It is very possible to camp with a 13'-14' kayak. You definitely don't need 17' to camp. I could camp for a week in my 12.10.

Okay, Plan B: buy the best kayak you can afford now, use it for a while, sell it for a profit, and upgrade. That's how I acquired an Eddyline, which didn't cost me a single dollar in the end. It took 9 upgrades to get to my goal. Great fun.
