Love our Alpine 3495FL. The great room affect is evident in this layout, the slidout kitchen opens up the dining kitchen area leaving a free standing dinner table that has stow away leafs. You can see all the way into the bedroom with the doors open. The pass through bath with seperate door for the head area also opens it up. I always felt a little cramped in the small hall ways to the forward bedroom. The full sized shower was a must for me at 6' 3" and still plenty of headroom in the living room. I also like that while she is using the vanity, it's easy to pass throughto the bedroom.
We don't live in ours, so going to the races and camping, we spend alot of time out of the trailer and by the time I get in the living room and put the TV on, I only enjoy it for about 10 min. and I'm passed out. Maybe thats just how comfortable it is.
I think you really have to look at how your going to use it.
Here is a link to some pics I posted when she was new and we had just started adding some supplies. We have since changed that ugly bedspread and added memory foam to the King sized bed.
