I am another trailer sailor advocate. It's family, home and priorities that limit my boating funds these days. But I go sailing. Yeah, I wish I had a bigger boat that overnighted better, but I am way at the small end; just a few feet longer and a few dollars more will get you into 20'-22' trailer sailors that have reasonable interiors and can handle a bit more wind and waves. Shop smart and it won't cost you much in the long run (you will get your purchase price back out of it).
