Outrageous Boat Buying Advice

I am in the market for a classic BW. I am thinking along the lines of an 18, 20 or 22. As trailering is something I'd like to retain as an option (I have a 1990 Toyota FJ62 w/3,500 lbs capacity), the smaller boat might be best.
I'd love some guidance from those of you more experienced in these matters about pros and cons of differnt boats and configurations and, anything and everything that I should be looking at and for in buying a boat of this type and age.
With that, I'd also like to know what I should be expecting to pay.

First Ian, welcome.
You've posted to the wrong forum since the 18, 20 and 22' Outrages are all classic Whalers.
Your only real option with your present tow vehicle is the 18' Outrage, since when you begin adding people and gear, you'll come really close (and maybe over) your GCVWR really quickly. I know - I have an 18 and tow with a 3,500 pound rated SUV.
Wow..so that was easy. Go with the 18.
Next, you need to tell us how you'll use the boat for us to provide advice on how to set it up:
These data points will help us guide you on seating configurations (leaning post, RPS, captains chairs, stern seat, etc) powering options (twins, single with a kicker, single only) and canvas options - (SunTop, full enclosure, etc.)
