Like in this picture.
The open area is before the bathroom (if you were walking toward the back of the coach) it's vertical, from top of coach to floor, about 2 feet or more in width, and inside there you can easily see the arms for extending the slide. Seems to me to be a safety issue as well as aesthetic. Salesman says he's seen same situation on couple other Beavers in the past, but I find that hard to swallow! Seems like the opening needs a piece of paneling to hide the inner workings from view, and it would stop things from falling in there.
