Adequate kitchen counterspace is rare in any trailer in the 23' and under range.
That was #1 feature for the DW.
So the 23SS was our choice.

X2 It was our choice as well, but its just the two of us. I'm sure younger/larger families may need the 3rd bunk offered by the 233ss.

Just a minor point.
SS is for super slide, which the 3 bunk 233S doesn't have.

I agree that those with kids are drawn to the 3 bunk models.
But something has to be sacrificed when you have a limited amount of space.

Here is what I have for counter space. Both closed & open. As you can see it's non existent. The stove actually works really good, so I found myself using it quite a bit. Unfortunately that turned into a counter that almost didn't hold my beverage.
I wonder if something similar to an ironing board mounted to the wall that folds down to use would help the situation?

Glad things worked out with the Ridgeline. I have a 2010 Toyota Sequoia and it tows just like a pick up truck. Downside is the cost, but I find the resale value holds better with a Toyota. I used to own a Zeppelin 19 and towed with a Trailblazer which had the same specs as your Ridgeline. It could to it, but would be the slow poke on the highway heading up into Adirondacks. If I still had to tow my 2013 233s which we bought a year ago, there would be no way it could tow the bigger trailer. Being outside the 10% buffer zone of the limits will make for easier, happier driving to get to where you are going. Interested to see what you end up going to.

I've seen where someone mounted a drop down table to the side of the stove. You can lose access to the exit though.

For ours, we bought a cheap TV tray. We can fold it up out of the way when not in use, or move it around the camper as needed. Works great for additional counter space, although lower height, or for the kids to setup shop on the couch to eat / draw / whatever.

Great choice, we bought a 2016 233s a few months ago.
I hail with a 2014 Nissan Armada with a heavy duty tow package with a WDH. The Armadas max TC is 9200lbs and max tongue weight is 900lbs. It hauls real well, only get around 400kms a tank, but it is a very comfortable and safe ride. I also use a P2 prodigy brake control.
It is great that you are doing your research, safety is key, and this form is so great. It has helped me so much.
Good luck and congrats!
