I almost bought a Parkliner but my wife saw an Airstream(23) and fell in love, but two years and many issues later we sold it, though the layout worked for us. My only concern with the 23 would be using the dinette/lounge as a bed on a nightly basis, but I guess well see when the prototype is done...
One of the designs that I would like to change on the 23 is the dinette. From RVing, I know the dinette has value, but in the end, they are a crap bed and take up too much permanent room. I would prefer a portable dinette setup with a foldaway table...replace the fixed dinette with a Murphy bed or fold down bunks or something else. We ate outside in our class A way more than inside. During the rain, we would use the dinette, certainly.
