Yes it was Airstream 2 Go - it is over the top expensive and I wd have preferred to buy too but this was a non-negotiable issue with my better half - and now she is on board 100%.

When looking at trailers, most either look for space for storage or space for comfort. While most of the larger/longer trailers will have more storage space, shorter/mid size trailers tend to have more space for comfort. The longer trailers, will always have that long skinny hallway, confining and darkening and usually everything else has been shortened an inch or two to squeeze in another feature/closet.

If you look toward the smaller middle size, you can usually find the room around the bed is more, the bathroom might be an inch or two longer and more spacious. Without that long hall the whole thing feels and seems actually bigger because it's more open.
If it's just the two of you with dogs, the smaller ones might have fewer walls for separation, without the need for defined separate areas (think kids) the max openness can feel so much more so.
The other benefit, as stated earlier, you can fit into virtually any park out there and tow easier too.
So, storage is the compromise, and taking your medication to keep your twofootitis under control.
Good luck and let us know what your research determines.

We find that our 23D, after our modifications, has more efficient kitchen and pantry storage than our 31' Classic with twin beds.

Super awesome to be shopping for a new unit. Just to throw out a different idea, and feel free to squash it, perhaps a fully renovated and overhauled vintage model? The 70s rear bath models are really big. There are some high quality and well respected renovators across the country who replace all the systems, running gear, and who can custom build you a floor plan.

Like the others have said, with your budget you have a lot of options. Please explore all the Airstream options you can before going the 5er route. The fun trip you had out west might have been a whole different experience towing, parking, and setting up a big 5th wheel. The 5er is certainly doable, and lots of people tow them around the country, but it is different than the Airstream.
