Class C slide on passenger slide

Hi everyone,

First I am new to this awesome forum, lots of great information for RVer's. Within the next few months I am looking to purchase a 2016 Thor Chateau 31L. I have some concerns with the bedroom slide on the passenger side. Does anyone with a slide on the passenger side have issues or regrets? Mainly I was concerned about campfire smoke, night noise, etc.

Others might disagree, but I don't think you'd find the slides areas allow any more noise in than the remainder of the walls, and certainly smoke shouldn't be an issue. We have a slide on the passenger side of the bedroom on our Palazzo, and just returned from a 5K mile cross country trip in some pretty cold weather. If anything, the side of the bedroom that has the slide remained warmer than the side without it...perhaps because there is some cabinetry and dresser drawers to provide extra insulation. If the headboard is tucked into the slide in your model, your experience could be different.

Concern we have with passenger side slides is impact on patio/under awning space. Our new mh will have two passenger side slides which will change how we setup camp, but we will adjust.

I had a Itasca Cambria with slide on passenger side for the bed. No noise or odor issues either. My dislike was having to fold the bed to close the slide when traveling and I had to make a custom two piece memory foam topper to put over the crummy 4" foam OEM mattress to make it comfortable to sleep on.

We first owned a Winnebago 31' class C with one slide on the driver side. When we decided to trade up to a class A, having the slide(s) on the driver side with a major priority as we did not want a slide on the passenger side taking away from our patio space. Also the compartments on the passenger side are the ones I use most frequently and didn't want to crawl under a slide to get to them. This ruled out all Winnebagos and several other brands. We found a new 2013 Newmar Baystar with both slides on the driver side, with a floorplan that suited our needs. Since then we decided to go back to a smaller unit and purchased a Winnebago/Itasca Navion, one slide on the driver side.

For us we wouldn't want a MH with any slides on the passenger side.
