For the most part I don't think it would matter much, but best way to find out would be to go to an RV dealer, extend the slideout and awning on an RV like you are wondering about and get your chairs and tables set up under the awning to see if you'll have enough room or not. Good Luck and have fun shopping.

We've had both and currently have a large slide (bedroom, entertainment area, kitchen) on the passenger side with an awning over the top and prefer the extra room inside to the outside area. We carry a portable canopy that we can use if shade is not available. I guess that's why we have so many choices of RV floorplans, to accomodate all our 'wishes'.

I have a full length awning, and I hate to say it, but I've only used it one time in the 22 months that I've had the coach. So in my case the extra side is worth it for the space...Plus the side only sticks out what, maybe 30 inches so it doesn't really get in the way.

I travel with a friend who has a slide on the curb side, and it makes the awning useless. Even with the slide in, the awning opens too high to be of any use. He never opens the slide, so why have it? I think if you have two slides on the driver's side you don't need a passenger side one. I think it's just an added expense and adding more weight to a most likely overloaded coach. Just my two cents worth. I like my two slide allegro bay.

In total agreement. Why camp if your not sitting outside with friends enjoying the fresh air.

It's all about trade offs, like so many things with RVs. We have a quad slide unit. Our awning is not mounted to the slide so it is pretty close to useless most of the time. We have the FL Evolution chassis so our storage bays slide out with the slides so the awning coverage is really the only down side for us. Since we full time we really appreciate the added room inside that the slide provides.
