At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it might be a good idea to email sunpath and pd to see what they have to say on the matter.

According to Sun Path's sizing chart, the J7 is designed for mains up to 288 square feet, while the J8K is designed for 300 square foot mains. You can usually - safely - install a canopy one size larger or smaller than recommended by the manufacturer.
You may be able to pack a PD 300 into a J7, but it will be hard work and you have to ask your packers how often they are willing to pack it on a busy day.
