Can you walk around without bumping into each other, especially the kitchen/dining area. That's where ours is tight for us, but again we don't full time. Also bathroom, a split bath is probably a good option when full timing.
+3 that floor plan is the number one thing to consider.

Related to floor plan is storage. It's easy to forget when you're standing inside a coach on a dealer lot with the salesperson jabbering at you. start in the bedroom and ask each other - where would her clothes go? where would his clothes go? dirty laundry? bed linens? In the bathroom where do towels hang, folded clean towels? toilet chemicals? In the kitchen/dining area - where do pots and pans go? dry goods? plates/glasses? Wine and liquor? Step outside and start to list all the things you want to carry - folding camp chairs? tables? propane fire pit? a grill? bikes? a giant portable telescope? extra supplies for the engine and transmission? your rolled up hose and electric extension cables? yellow lego blocks for leveling?

The list goes on and on but you get the idea. All coaches are not equal in terms of storage and it depends on what's important to you.

Good luck with your decision and have fun buying!

Very true; see what is blocked when the slides are in. Our rig is still fully useable with the slides in, with the exception of the dresser drawers below the closet (and even then, extending the bedroom slide just 1 foot gives us access).
