If you expand your allowable weight to around 4800 pounds then finding all of those things is relatively easy. I like the Rockwood Ultra Lite.

It's getting hard to find ovens, mfrs claim nobody uses them anymore. Maybe so but we love ours! Nothing like smelling a roast cook all day when the Fall air is crisp! Or brownies baking....mmmm....

Sorry no ideas, the best place to look would have been the annual RV show in Hershey PA but like everything else it got cancelled this year. RV shows in general are a good resource because you can see a lot of models quickly and also the sales reps are usually knowledgeable about models and features (not tech stuff LOL).

What's the max weight you can handle?

Something like FOREST RIVER ROCKWOOD MINI LITE 2504S has an empty weight of 4800lb and GVWR of 6300.

A little higher weight wise but otherwise ticks the boxes. Is there any flexibility on tow vehicle or how heavy do you pack?

RV trader will let you search, based on features, length, weight, etc. Once you find one that you like - then go searching for it based on name and model. Or (what I did) - you can go to a huge RV website, like "Forest River" or "Thor" and then search the floorplans of all the subset brand names.

I just bought a Rockwood Mini Lite 2109S - I know there's a very similar model that has a Murphy bed arrangement instead of the island queen bed. If I remember correctly, a LOT of 20' and shorter models offered the floorplan I think you are asking for. (My trailer is 4100 lbs, but it has a double axle)

On edit: the 2104S is the trailer I was thinking of - BUT: it's #4900 lbs; (The murphy bed feature adds a lot of weight) and when you get that one, you lose the pass-through storage area. For what you are hoping for, you might have to go with a single axle trailer?

As luck would have it I just got an email about a Virtual RV Show being put on by RV Wholesalers, Sept 23 from noon till 8pm.

It's free, just follow the link to register.

Thanks for all the good ideas. My Suburban has a towing capacity of 7800, but my current trailer has a max loaded weight of 6000, not sure how much weight I actually have in it right now, but it seems to tax it's ability on hills, so I wanted to go a little lighter if possible.

Seems a WInnebago towable Micro Minnie or Minnie might work.

Our new Rockwood Mini 2104 has a slide out dinette, oven, full bathroom, and a Murphy Bed but it is 4800 lbs. When the Murphy Bed is up, there is a couch with both ends that recline. We love it.
