Default RV 12 short field performance

Hello folks. I was directed here by the factory for some first hand advice and perspective on the suitability of an RV 12 operating out of a 1300’ grass farm strip, 600’ msl with a clear departure path. I’ve reviewed the factory T/O&LDG numbers (hard surface at gross) but wanted to hear from folks actually flying the plane and see how you would feel operating in this environment. We don’t want every approach and departure to be an “event”. Obviously energy management and being on speed will be critical for landing. We both hold ATP’s but no experience in the RV line. Should we simply look elsewhere for something more suitable? Thanks for your time.
