list of 5th with driver side/side door?

We've sold th MH and have found a campground we like here in Indiana. Lot choice is driven by proximity to circle of friends. The lot is conducive to a 5th wheel more so than TT. (views/BR location) and would be great if the 5th had a driver side door..I would call this a "back" door.
I know Newmar in mid-90's had this as a floorplan option (CKSA) on 33 and 36 ft 5th wheels.
I've heard possibly Terry; Jayco and Puma did as well. Maybe Carriage?
I am asking for help in determineing floor plan nomenclature for ANY 5th with this option. I have the Newmar nomenclature (CKSA) and can't find any for sale.
Your assistance is appreciated.

Never have seen a back door on a Carriage. However, I think you can still get a door on both sides on certain Forest River/Cedar Creek models. phillip

TY JBTAZ. The floorplan is exactly what we would like. I researched and found several for sale. NADA price guides shows the 35FLE was made in 2003 and 2004 only. 2003 low retail $16,840 and 2004 avg retail $25,670. That is more than our budget allows. I will now keep my eye and internet searches out for this model. One never knows when a bargain may pop on the market.
Thank you very much!

From the pics I found online of this model it doesn't appear to have the additional side/back door. It does have bunks tho and a second bathroom. It may have an access door off the 2nd bathroom, couldn't tell from the pics tho. We aren't fond of the bunkhouse floorplan since we don't have use for them..no applicable guest to use them. would be nice for grandkids tho.
Thanks!

No imagination!

Leave the mattresses at home, and use the rest of the bunk for storage. Or remove the lower bunk altogether and convert the space to a large closet, then use the upper bunk to store lighter-weight stuff such as quilts, blankets, coats, etc. In our case, we'd have small and medium-sized dog crates on the lower bunk, along with other doggie paraphanalia. Plus, I'd have some place to store my Stetson instead of leaving it in the truck.

And yeah, it would be nice to have enough decent sleeping space to invite a couple of the grand kids or great grand kids to travel with us in the summertime. Right now they'd have to sleep on the convertable dinette, and that's a big hassle.
