This is after the fact, of course, but I think you will love your 19' CCD. I have an '04 CCD 19' and LOVE every inch of it. As for ease of travel, I travel alone most of the time( my husband has less time available than I do) and I can handle everything about the trailer by myself. I'm just a 5'4" 50-something woman and this is no probelm for me. I tow it with a Dodge Dakota and trust me, I pack it with all my essential needs....art/scrapbooking supplies, dog, plenty of clothes, you get the picture. I always travel at apporpriate speed limits and managed to get from CT to WY last summer with 2 friends and their belongings in tow. I think you will be very happy with your choice.
