Our last coach had a front door and this coach has a mid entry door. I think the front entry door allows for a better floor plan and wastes less space. Joe

Ours has a passenger footrest for that

Cheryl, most of the copilot chairs with the front door MHs recline with a footrest that comes up so you can still lay back in comfort.

Our coach has front entry and there is no problem at all with front passenger chair being too far back. My wife does not, but I put my feed up on the dash the few times I am not driving. Some of our friends motor homes have the seat way back, but not on ours.

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!

Boy , I love that coach. It's just the icing on the cake to have the mid door!

Tell DW to go outside for that last check and then you can enjoy a nice quiet drive while she gives you the silent treatment.
