Look for a Vantage 29RLS by Keystone. It has 2 chairs, a couch plus a dinette. Also this is a very solid trailer.

Take a boo at a Jayco
I have the 22FB
Queen Bed in the front with closet with hanger rod on each side
Also has a wardrobe in the rear in the Bathroom but still has the hanger Rod
Fold out Love seat big enough for two adults to watch TV or sleep a pre teen or two
The dinette is big enough and will sleep a pre teen or two
Price under 12k US Dollars
Now mine is not the full winter insulated version but it will still be under your price point I am sure

You don't say new or used, max. weight or max. length.

I am biased, but may I suggest a look at the KZ Spree 261RKS? It is 29' overall and about 6600 lbs loaded up. All aluminum structure. It has a sofa for watching TV. TV is in a good location for viewing from sofa. Has a large closet/wardrobe opposite the bathroom. Large bathroom with walk-in shower (really nice bathroom IMHO). Bathroom has a large-ish cabinet for towels and bathroom stuff. Has a nice spacious feel to it when you enter. Has one slide. Great rear kitchen with above normal counter space and has pantry on one side. Bedroom has wardrobe on one side for tall clothing.

Available in a base model or LX model along with various options in both. For 2014, there is no more 216RKS and has been changed to 262RKS and no LX package available (it's standard in the 262) and another related simpler model in place of the 262RKS. The 2014 model has some nice improvements like vaulted ceiling and 8 cu. ft. fridge. Can't imagine it not being available where you are. New base model should be well under $30K. I have not seen info. on the 2014 models yet on the internet. Oh, and also, the Spree is available in Sandalwood exterior (light beige) which looks pretty sharp with all black accents. The 2014 model is changing to light grey/silver exterior. If you do buy one, please let the factory know so we get a nice rebate on ours, lol.

Having said this, I do believe that there is another brand out there with a similar layout.

My Surveyor SV-264 has a 26" television that pulls down over the dinette. Can't watch too well from the dinette but it's OK. Couch is opposite dinette so it's really good from there. Also has a TV mount in the bedroon, and outside under the awning. Wardrobe is in the slide next to the couch, and roomy enough for us. The kitchen actually has counter space... which is why we have it... Yep, DW got her choice. Also has storage under the bed, over the dinette, couch, bed, and hanger wardrobes each side of the bed. Speaking of beds, ours came with a real matress, and we added 3" memory foam to that so it sleeps nice. It has 2" foam walls with fibergalss on the outside. Our previous TT has walls about 1" thick. I lived in the Surveyor last year for 7 weeks in the Texas heat while we sold our home and moved, as my job had already started in the DFW Area. We've been pretty comfortable in the winter when we've used it, too... down to 15 degrees outside... I paid under $25,000- a little over a year ago... It weighs about 6,000# loaded. I pull it with a 2011 F-150 with the 5.0 V-8, and 3.55 gears... Does just fine.

Might work for you... check it out.

be certain you both can watch tv without turning your head too far to one side. A poor viewing angle is found on a lot of trailers
