Another benifit of not having a passenger side slide is that exterior cargo can be much easier to access, with less back bending.
This would not be a factor with under slide style cargo bays. However, they are generally much smaller than basement storage.
The benifit would depend how often you plan on acessing you basement.

This is what we have, full wall slide on the passenger with awning attached to the slide. We don't have any issues with spending time outside under the awning. Plenty of space.

It doesn't matter if you have the right awning.

No we have two awning, so its not a big deal.

Our 2015 Itasca Meridian 36M has a huge slide out basement storage that slides out on either side so the slides don't interfere with the basement access.

Awning is plenty big so slide is not an issue. It works great also as we set up the TV, or tables under the slide, leaving more room for chairs

I too have sliding cargo trays in my basement, that can be slid out from either side. From the drivers side (with the living room slide extended) I have to get under the living room slide to open the cargo door.
From the passenger side without the slide extended, it's much easier to open the cargo door.
Another RV we looked at (fleetwood) had cargo that was fixed to the slide. So the cargo door was always under the slide window regardless of slide position. There was nothing to extend over the cargo door. However, the bays were small, and it did have pass through basement storage.

When we were looking for our current coach one of the must haves was a single rear "super slide" on the curb side. We are weekend warriors and spend much more time outside than in. If I was full time I would go back to the 4 slide.

With the '02 Dutch Star it used to bother me even though it was only a 16" slide. The Magna has the Girard style awnings and a 24" slide. It doesn't bother me as much on the present rig due to them extending out further and the double awnings running almost the full length of the rig.

It does cut down on the room outside but not enough to make it undesirable. There have been a couple of times when it is raining that we would like more room to sit outside so we just put the slide in for the time and have all the room one could want and it does not take away from the inside either.

Awning is mounted to the curb side slide so no loss.

We have 3 slides 2 on passenger 1 on drivers side our awning is mounted on the slide not the wall of the coach so we enjoy full use of the awnings and that extra room inside is great

Another with four slides.

Nothing says you HAVE to put it out. We regularly put our kitchen slide in and out depending upon where we are spending our time. We have plenty of room with the kitchen slide in. It does make a more narrow passageway from kitchen to fridge, bedroom and bathroom.

Just put this on your list while shopping. Check the room with the slide in or out.

We have extended our awning coverage by installing a sun screen that we place out at an angle from the MH. This gives us shade most of the day. Class As suffer from a lack of patio shade anyway. Typically, the awning is mounted up too high to do much good.

Oh my gosh we are all so different! We wanted for as much interior living space as we could get and gave no thought to loosing patio space. Last weekend we brought our chairs from the drivers side patio to the front of the RV for a better view at the setting sun. So....isn't the whole outside of the RV fair game for enjoying the out of doors?
