Great Discussion! We have a very similar situation as BlasterMaster with the kids and all, so this is all great info!

The common loaded weights for the classic 19's were 3700-3800 lbs. The new generation has another 300-400+ lbs. added to the dry weight. One could expect 4100-4200 lbs. loaded.

Regarding lack of bathroom:
We selected our 17A (instead of a B model), because, as long-time campers more than just travelers/sightseers, we are outside our trailer except at night or very inclement weather. The porta-potty, stored in a cabinet under the permanent queen bed (with the comfortable 8" mattress), is perfect for nighttime, so we're not making the trek to some restroom/outhouse building at the other side of the camp ground in darkness.
If we need a shower, we go to a campground or other facility with showers. Here in California, if you're camping at some of the State parks that are dry (no hookups, pit toilets only, etc.), you can use the shower (and other) facilities at nearby State parks, just by showing your camping permit/pass.

Great choice. I highly recommend the 19 if you want to accommodate up to 5 now and have a bathroom. The beauty is it will still be a perfect trailer if eventually it is just the two of you camping.

True enough. I also read somewhere on these forums that the 19 is nice in that you can leave the queen bed as a bed and still have the 4 person dinette for if you want to have another couple join you for a drink or two.
