We started with a 19h in 2008 and were very used to the amount of living space inside
as the beds folded outside of the trailer. We began looking for a non-hybrid in Sept 2012 (it got to be too much work to set up the 19h) and were prepared to give up the dinette or the sofa so when the 23m was released we were sold immediately because the bed could be out of the way during the day.
We wanted to stay under 25' and we had to be ultralight. We're very happy with ours...storage is tight but we're adapting.
Congrats bosheby!! The walk around bed was what we needed most...we're just too old to be climbing over each other for the middle of the night trip to the loo. The mattress in our 23m was a little on the firm side so we've added a good memory foam topper. It's heaven.
