I'm also very much sold on the idea of buying from a local, reputable dealer and based on the reviews I've read on WES (about 30 miles from my home) the 23FB is definitely a model we'll search more thoroughly.
We just winterized it this past wknd :-( (I wasn't expecting I'd be that sad doing it ;-( .
This was our first Trailer (38 nights spent in it) and it fit us perfect (My Wife two small dogs and myself). Yes, only one person can cook in the kitchen. (Two can manage doing the dishes, my Wife let me know that ;-() But when your camping I much prefer cooking outside anyways.
I would highy suggest buying local as well for your first Trailer, it's nice knowing you have that support. I found camping with an experienced friends was beneficial as well. Nice to be able to have them close by to ask questions to. Hard to ask the fine folks here when your out at a campsite ;-)
