If you are shopping in the Pacific NW, check out a Ranger 20. We cruised and raced one in OD local races for five years. Trailered it to mountain lakes and to Puget Sound.
One of the best sailing smaller cruisers ever built. Period.
Ray Richards-designed, and built in the main factory in Kent WA, and also under contract in Salt Lake City.
I used to tow it with a four-cylinder compact pickup.

There are over 600 of them out there and I have seen very good ones for under 3K.
The Portland fleet is still very active, racing and cruising.

Best,
LB
