I owned a 19' Bambi before going to the 25' Safari. I loved the 19', though some folks like the 22', I didn't care for the wet bath or the front bedroom. Additionally, the wheel well took a good bit of the foot space under the dinette. The 23 addresses most of the short comings of the 22', except the front bedroom, which to me is a personal thing. One thing for sure is that dual axles tow smoother and can get you out of a bind should one tire go south.
Not sure if they ever gave the 22' 2 batteries, but if not, our 19' had it. I also don't know if the 23' has dual batteries. Boondocking with 2 batteries is king.
Another accessory I'd suggest is that you get the "LS" upgrade. Gets you a whole slew of goodies, some worthwhile, while others might not be as critical. Go for the second fantastic vent in the rear roof vent, regardless if you get the "LS" package that has it in the front roof vent too. Unless you get the CCD or SE versions, the windows don't allow a lot of great cross wind in the coach (even our 25'). With two fantastic vents, you could deal with any heat, and the dual batteries will help power them.
Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91
