That's about how we look at it as well. We'll generally pick a campsite with some privacy, and often the only way you can do that best is to have the awning facing the woods...

In an RV park, you are pretty much looking at your neighbors no matter which side you eat on.

Well, how about when you're just cruising down the road?

When I am sitting at the dinette and others are driving, I like the view out the right window. It just seems more scenic, in my opinion....

I have no preference. Both the dog and I gobble our food with laser-like attention to the bowl.

The DW, on the other hand, cares about the "Best Light" coming in the dinette window while she applies all the beauty lotions, etc. to her face.


Can anyone out there identify?

Why is the DW applying her war paint at the kitchen table?

We enjoy maximum views at the ocean and in most back in sites with the curb side dinette.

There are more and bigger windows on that side which seems to be on the scenic side of the rig in most cases.

Of course, we do not have slides to complicate the situation.

Our motorhoe has the dinette on the street side but for the reasons mentioned above we would like to lok at models with a curbside dinette so we could look out on "our side" of the site we park in. t doesnt make much difference if you park in isolated spots but when you are parked in most campgrounds I would prefer to look at my patio than someone elses.

Ours in on the street side with a large arched window. I like spying on the nieghbors. LOL. Honestly though I never gave it a thought until this thread. Now I think we may have to upgrade & find a curb side so we can look at our awning instead of the nieghbors when we eat. These forums must be run by the manufactures, it seems as though there are always these great ideas & I keep spending my DW's money.

To make it a little more enjoyable we added a counter over some additional cabinets.

Our dinette was on the street side however we just replaced all the old tile and carpet with new porcelain tile and new carpet and in the process decided to switch the dinette with the recliner and end table that was curb side. We really like it better this way. Before the dinette was in the slide out so you had limited head room. Now the whole front end of the coach feels more roomy.

I guess it only matters if you like to watch your neighbors while eating which is sometimes funny I watch my plate go empty.
