I have a similar situation, maybe not 6 month but longer periods.

I am leaning towards the Canon Pro 300. With its smaller ink tanks its made for occasional printing. It has a way of diverting printing from a clogged nozzle to others . I am thinking also if I leave it plugged in it will  clean itself automatically every now and then. Lastly the head is user replaceable.

I believe the Dye based Pro 200 might be a better choice but I think I want pigment for my prints just based on look.

I always treated printing as an afterthought but now with lockdowns and time on my hand J am thinking to learn and explore that might get me through Winter

Cheers
