Default Picking Rio Size

I used online sail size calculator, plugged my weight 120 Kilos and sail size 8.5m2 and ended up with the following board size recommendations

Beginner Board 250L
First Shortboard 186L
Smallest Uphaulable 150L

How does Rio M (at 195L) fits with these numbers? I would consider getting Rio L but my storage facility (my apartment and my elevator) cannot accommodate 290cm. I want to get a board that would allow me to progress and learn things like water start, heli tack, pivot jibe and sailing tail first. Are Rio boards appropriate for that or should I consider something else? How would GO 175 fit the bill?

I currently have a 2007 Rio L which I am planning to keep for my daughter who is just getting into sailboarding
