That’s a nice little camper. I’d like to have something like that

Update. I ended up finding an older trailer here in Wenatchee that fit the bill. 2013, 23 feet, one tip out, Solar set up and 3880 dry weight. Looking forward to getting it out in the hills.

Nice!

I went back and forth about spending more to get a newer trailer with more features but went this route for a few reasons. This is my first trailer to personally own so I viewed this similar to a "starter home". Also, I wanted something that I wouldn't be as afraid to bring on some of those less desirable mountain roads and get dirty, maybe a few little bumps and bruises etc.

Looks good to me. That dry weight should work fine with your pickup.

I share your feelings of not wanting to mess up a new expensive travel trailer on rough roads, hitting low hanging branches etc. If its got a few scratches and stains thats cool, as long as it is functional, comfortable and reliable.

Congrats.

It hurts the first few times but gets easy over time, even with a newer trailer.
Those scratches and dinks tell the story of the adventure you were on, the more damage, the bigger the story. 
Now, when you start destroying your truck...that hurts more.

Oh my, I think we bought our trailers around the same time, NO WAY I could do that to mine, I'd puke.  My truck is trashed from my moose hunt but my trailer gets washed every time I bring it home after camping.  But hey, to each their own.

What level are you guys with your pickups? I say dings and scratches within reason are fine IN the pickup bed. Its a pickup, your supposed to use it to haul stuff.

I saw a guy at scrap metal with a pristine pickup, lining his pickup bed with beach towels before he loaded metal in the back.

I'm not a fan of plastic bed liners, everything slides around too easy.

Yep, 2019 brand new.
We use it dang near every weekend between March and October.  The amount of adventures and memories it is making with my 4 and 6 year old trump those scratches.  We all hate people, especially camping close to others, so we are constantly as far off the path as possible.
