Two-Person Trailerable Sailboat

I'm in the process of learning to sail and am trying to gather all of the information I can on the best way to go about learning. I will be taking classes soon and, though I have visions of sailing a 35'+ yacht off into the sunset, the overwhelming consensus of the experienced sailors out there is to start small and 'just get on the water and make mistakes.'

I'm thinking about buying something like a used laser, sunfish or hobie cat ($5000 range). The perfect boat would comfortably accommodate two people; fit on a trailer; be easy to launch; not take much more room in my driveway than a car, and be suitable for an afternoon on the San Francisco bay.

Any suggestions?
