The tough thing is the comfy interior.
I just bought a Precision 18, but I am only day sailing. You have to be a hardy couple to want to do two nights or more on a boat under 20 feet. I know people who have happily done it, though.
The P-18 trailers easily with my Subaru Forester. I think it will be about 1800 lbs with outboard, trailer, boat and gear. I drove 2 hours to pick it up - with no problem on the way back.
We have a house near the water in RI, so won't have to stay on the boat.
I'd have to agree the upgrading the vehicle and looking at 21 to 24 foot might make for a happier weekend.
