The perfect trailer is only the one YOU like. Everyone have different ideas on the perfect trailer. We have much of the same requirements as you have which we found in our dutchman 261BHS. We have had it for 2 years and have no complaints of our choice for our family.

Looking for the perfect travel trailer.

Do you have a 3/4 or 1 ton to tow?

If you can up that to 29ft (33 foot bumper to bumper) look at the Coachmen Freedom Express 292Bhds. U dinette, couch, either 3 bunks with outdoor kitchen or 4 bunks. No separate bathroom entrance but I think they may have a floor plan that does.

Not sure how much counter space is "plenty" but it is enough for me even when we take guests and sleep 6 adults.

It's 6140 lbs posted on the door. Depending on your truck could be 1/2 ton towable. We tow it with a 2015 Ram 1500 8 speed trans, 5.7L hemi 3.92 axle ratio. A F150 could be better as it has slightly higher payload and payload is our limiter rather than GCVW. It's just 2 of us and a small dog in the truck. This is not the "Liberty edition" which adds a good bit of weight in solid surface counter tops and porcelain potty as well as a fireplace and other features.
