I'll echo Don's comment about the end-fed antennas.
I have the PAR 40M/30M end-fed and very happy with it. It has a single trap about 45 feet out from the feedpoint, and an overall length of 54 feet. I had no trouble setting the lengths for an SWR of 1.2:1 or better. With that success, there's no need for an antenna tuner. I've also built several end-feds for portable operation and had the same success with them.
The EF-10/20/40 is 40 feet in length, and could be bent at one end if you don't have enough attic length. Its maximum recommended power is 25 Watts if that's a concern.
