I presently drive a Fleetwood Providence, with the front door. I have been thinking about trading for a mid-entry door type floor plan. The main reason is that when we get ready to pull out on the road, there always seems to be "something" that I need to check, outside. Now think about it. The DW is all set in the passenger chair; her shoes off and her feet up on the extended footrest; her seatbelt in place around her and both dogs, in their spots on the chair with her.
Then I say...."Honey, I have to check something outside.".......Then the trouble starts!
