Another source to check:
I haven't used the Worksman PAV, but I think it would probably work fine in basically flat areas. I've got a Worksman cargo trike, and I find it is wide enough that you basically "take the lane" with it whether you want to or not, so it helps to be a little more selective on where you ride relative to traffic. With either trike, you could have some substantial challenges if you live where it is REALLY hilly.
You mention riding with your uncle. If he's been riding quite a while and/or is more fit, you'd expect a substantial speed difference that can be awkward to deal with.
I've managed to lose about 60 lbs over the last few years mainly by bicycling. One thing I've found, though, is that you can't just leisurely mosey around the neighborhood and accomplish much. But if you're fairly religious about getting out and riding, and put some effort into it when you do, it's a great thing.
