Your planning is much better than your first post seemed to suggest.
I'm too much of a DIY'er to be much help in which dealer offers the best support. I bought my 19RD at Camping World in Kingston, NY. I've since picked up some accessories there. The propane fitting was actually incorrect and I wound up modifying it, rather than hiking an hour+ each way.
Keep shopping. Again keep everybody in the family in the loop.
Others here will chime in on their dealer experience and some online deals as well. But you need to narrow down which two or three models will suit your needs first.
Visit a couple of dealers and browse!
Then discuss with everybody that will live in the thing for "too many" or "too few" (you'll understand, one day, Grasshopper) days at a time....
Then jump in with both feet and HAVE FUN!!!
