Yep, you have to set your priorities and make sure the important stuff is covered before you fall in love with less important details.

Although in my case, I was more worried about width than height...

We can get to the kitchen, fridge and 1/2 bath easily with the slides closed. With the bedroom slide out getting to the main bath is doable. Better when the full slide is out.

But your user name implies you can fit anywhere.

When we get our motorhome I had visions of pulling off to get a cold drink from the fridge or using the bathroom. I just discovered that we can do neither with the floorplan I fell in love with. Now as I look further I find this is frequently the case. Before I start my search all over again, has anyone researched floorplans with this in mind or is it common to put out a slide when you stop?
With ours we can et to the dinette, fridg, washer & dryer, and half bath while the slides are in. The king bed blocks the full bath and bedroom draws.

X2 - WBG Journey 36M...access easily all but Bdr dresser dwrs. (*We keep extra chg clothes items for 1 day in upper cabinet Bdr above dresser Dwr in case we need an item w/o putting out FWSlide, e.g, socks, pjs, etc).

One thing we did when we settled on WBG Journey "wish" list was photocopy available floorplans from brochure. Based assumption that mfr brochure was "to scale.". Then, cut off slide in xc of floorplans flush to outer wall of plan, and "re-attached each slide to photocopy as it "might" be when retracted on floorplan xc. While not exact, it did give us a pretty clear vision that among 3 Journey floorplans, the 36M "appeared on xc paper mock-up w slides retracted" to have a better aisle space. Then, we located a 36M w colors etc we would find acceptable on a dealer lot. Drove to see and drive in person. First question to salesman, " please bring in all the slides.". He did, and we were amazed at how wide the aisle is in-person...was and is even more comfortable w slides retracted than we envisioned with our "xc mock up."

Agree also w suggestion to check any other features..for us, we wanted comfortable dinette seating (we chose Extenda-dinette And love that!). DH needs a sofa back that is higher, some sofa back heights were too short for his comfort (fyi - 36M has two opposing sofas, not same back heights, but driver side sofa back is taller and perfect height for DH comfort.)

Whatever works best will be what is individual 'best for you!'. Best wishes and enjoy your search .

Safe travels to all

BeHappy had a great idea. I did cut out the floorplan, cut off the sides (I had just been measuring) and place them where they would be with the slides in. It doesn't look like there is room to get through unless there is some way to make room by moving the table, at this point I don't know if there is a down position on it. I await a photo and/or solution from the seller. Thanks again to everyone, you are all so willing to share and I do appreciate that. Rosie

When we sold our WGO View, the first e-mail from the buyer had 27 questions. I almost blew him off as a "tire kicker." I replied with very short answers and expected to never hear from him again. He came back with another boatload of questions but seemed sincere so I sent photos of every single ding, dent, smudge and scratch. He immediately sent a non-refundable deposit and, two weeks later, flew in and paid the balance in cash.

Our new-to-us 2010 WGO Vista is fully functional with both slides in except 1 cabinet door that only opens halfway. I wouldn't buy a rig where the PO won't fully disclose everything I ask for.
