17'ers seem to be very common in your area. Nice trailers, but be aware they are on the heavy side for that size class (avg. 3300 pounds loaded with a 425 pound hitch weight). You'll want a vehicle with at least a 4500/450 towing capacity.
17B is a nice alternative, roomier and lighter, but used availability is very limited and a new one won't be available until well past your launch date.
NC-based L'il Snoozy would also be worth a look. Very roomy layout, but all-electric.
A lighter option is a Scamp
or Casita 16'er weighing
in about 2500 pounds loaded.
Layouts on any of these haven't changed much for years, so the current websites will show you what's available, new or used.
One of the best ways to get a look at a number of makes and models (and talk to their owners) is to visit a fiberglass
. The October Cherokee gathering in western NC might be your best bet.
If you are thinking about ordering a new one, you'll want to contact the manufacturer soon. They can get backed up for spring deliveries.
Best wishes on your search for the perfect rolling home!
