Once you have a list of potential mfg'rs, I'd suggest that you go to the specific owner's forum for info. The owner's forum will give you great info, and a more reliable assessment of the owner's level of satisfaction with their purchase. Review sites will tend to be biased toward the negative or positive.

Cool

I have a Komfort 23' FS which means it has low height in the bdrm.
I can't stand in the bdrm, but there is just the 2 of us and I just come down 2 steps and get dressed or go in the bathroom.
My wife is 5'-2" and can stand in the bdrm.
By not having the tall model I get better mileage.
We only sleep in the bdrm not entertain!
Good Luck & Drive Safe!

Another source of information is once you settle on a couple of brands, go to the consumers forums and nose around for a couple of hours. Yoy will soon find out what owners have and how they like them.

You might find it beneficial to pick the Mfg., Make, and Model you like and do a search for an owners forum to find out the good, the bad and the ugly that folks have encountered with their trailers.
I'm sure you'll find a plethora of information that no dealer or manufacturers website will ever tell you.

How small do you want to go? We have a 17' Vanguard which is no longer made. It is o.k. but the rear dinette is awkward to get in and out of and the only place to sit. The bathroom is tight to put it mildly.
We looked at a 20' at an rv show yesterday but didn't feel it offered much advantage. Saw a really nice 23' Sportsman with a slide but can't afford it and a newer tv.

Look at Northwood products. Arctic Fox is pretty basic, but Ron Nash puts the money in construction, so it is a very rugged built RV for the money.

+1 on Northwoods Mfg, the Nash line is nice too, just not as many options.
