Which side do you have your dinette table ?

When we were shopping for our rig, I desperately wanted our dinette to be on the street (left) side.

But when we saw the current coach have now, it had the dinette on the curb (right) side. I wasn't crazy about it then, but decided to purchase it anyway, because it was such a good price for the condition it was in.

Thanks goodness I did. Now, I think that curb side dinettes are the only way to go. It just seems that it's a bit more scenic on that side.

Thoughts ?

We eat outside a lot and;or in my recliner on curb side. If your coach does not have three or four slide outs then a curb side dinette could lead to a galley slideout. I am not a big fan of galley SO's.

The coach we had before had a curb side, we liked it. The one now has a street side, now we like it. Maybe change is good.

Sounds like confirmation bias.

If my memory serves me correctly, just about all MHs had the dinette on the passenger's side and galley opposite. Then slides became fashionable, the first being driver's side salon/galley. Didn't take long for manufacturers to realize it was more practical and less expensive to do a switch-a-roo because of the cost involved managing the water and propane lines in a slide. Now, there are a lot of MHs that have the galley in a slide especially since the introduction of three and four slide models. Does this make sense?

We had a 1977 (no slides) and the dinett was on the street side, Now we have a 1999 (two slides) it's on the same side, honestly never paid any attention, the trees are the same on both sides.

Ours is street side, but I don't think I would mind either way.

It would have to depend on the rest of the floor plan, mine is street side. I voted no difference but I don't always eat at the table.

My dinette is on the street side and the bedroom slide is on the curb side.
And when it's cold out I'm in the inside!

What difference does it make which side the table is on when you are in a CG eating? There is no streetside or curbside.

When in a typical campgroung, your patio area/picnic table is on the curb side. So is your awning. We like to eat looking out at our covered patio rather than the neighbor next to us. It's just a much better view and atmosphere.

I had not thought about it from this perspective and I like your perspective. Too bad I have to eat watching my... ahem... neighbor. I guess that's why I so often eat on the patio, outside, even when it's freezing in the the teens and 20'!

Like my curb side. The patio awning makes shade for that side.
And I can see anyone approaching my front door, and know who they are before going to the door.

I'm usually looking at my plate if we are eating at the dining table, so don't notice the outside scenery. And if we eat outside (under the awning or at a picnic table), it doesn't make much difference.
