Lathe Advise

>I hope I do not open a can of worms here with this question. I have been thinking of moving up to a larger lathe than my Jet Mini. Can any of you recomend a good lathe that will primarily be used to turn bowls. I really would like something with a pivoting headstock to turn larger bowls. I ultimately would like to turn up to a 20 - 25 inch bowl. I guess I am looking for something that I can grow with and not want to replace in a year. I think I can convince the boss lady to let me spend between 2-2.5K, and that will be pushing it?

Thanks,
Chris
