How much time will you spend in the bedroom, really? A slide there means you will have difficulty using it when the slide is closed, and with a diesel pusher means you will have a step on the stern side of the bed, like overnighting at Cracker Barrel or similar place. We deliberately decided on a floor-plan that allowed complete access to everything when the slide is closed.

Good points.

My current 2 slide coach upward opening compartment doors, awkward.

And the compartments under the bedroom slide are difficult to get into, so lawn chairs go there and I set them out before extending the slide. The main living slide carries the storage compartments with it. Limits size and weight capacity but easy to access.

That appears to be fully workable and a lot better than the two we saw yesterday, we will just have to be careful in our search for a new coach.
