You might want to post in the particular owners forum for the type of coach you are looking at. I bet someone would be willing to post a picture for you.

Some of the Winnebagos have access through the bathroom to the bedroom with the wall slide in. With it out, you use the hallway down the wall.

Not sure what the question is but I think most folks advertising a rig for sale want to present it in its best light and the interior with slides retracted isn't any coach's best light.

If there's a particular make model and year you're interested in knowing about, provide that information and I'm sure someone will chime in who knows.

Best of luck.

I can understand the OP's concern. Some floor plans have parts that are very cramped when the slides are in to the extent that clothes cupboards can't be opened.

My only suggestion is to have a look at the floor plans and try to judge what they are like with all the slides retracted. Could maybe cut out each slide section and retract it on the drawing

I agree with the OP's complaint, and have gone the extra mile to find pics with the slide in as part of my pre-purchase research. However, as others have already pointed out... is there a question there somewhere???? No mentioned on which coach.

The more slides, the more cramped going down the road. You don't get something for nothing.

We were looking the 38 to 42 ft diesel range and ran into the same problem. Don't bet on being able to get to the bathroom without turning sideways and rubbing your knees on the davenports while trying to get through. We took two days at the Tampa RV show and left disappointed with all of them. We really thought the 42' Entegra would fit our needs. We can home and purchased a 2004 Country Coach Diesel with 25,000 miles that both of us can dance from front to back in. While it took a bit of money to get on the road it is a better coach and better paint job than the new units. Have fun but look, look, look!

Actually, we looked at a super-C at motorhome specialist in Alvarado--believe it was one of the Dynamaxes where there was no way to get to the bathroom with the slides in. Stupid design IMO, but there it was. We have seen others where you may have to dodge a few thing, but that is the only one we have seen where you could literally not get to the bathroom.

May I suggest that you make sure the entire coach is useable with the slides in. Not only getting to the bathroom and bedroom, but can you open the refrigerator or use the stove and/or sink. Is it possible to sit at the dinette?

There are still coaches (not nearly as many as there are trailers and 5'ers) that are not very useable when the slides are in.

If you're traveling and pull in to an overnight spot late, you might want to just have a quick bite and fall into the sack.

We have a 2008 Thor Mandalay 41 foot class A with the four slides. We have no problems going from the front back to the bathroom which is just before the bedroom. My wife can lay on her side of the bed when the slides are closed but I must crawl over her in that situation. We have the east/ west bed lay out. I would never own a motorhome without slides. We can use every thing in the kitchen area while moving down the road. My bride has no problem making meals when I am driving.
