Sorry
I really shouldn't say much about class A, never owned one, I was just looking at used ones seemed like most I looked at were that way.
Choice is great!

You are correct.

Our propane fridge is also on the passenger side and the rest of the kitchen is on drivers side. 1/2 in the slide, 1/2 not. The sink stays put, but the stove moves.

Another plus is the fridge is right inside the door. Handy for access to the cold ones.

No matter which side you have it, when you park it, you'll wish it was on the other side. Our bedroom slide is on the wrong side 50% of the time!

I can’t say that I’ve ever wished it was on the other side.

I looked for 2 years to find our rig.

Kitchen on driver side wasn't an option, but a must.

I probably looked at over a hundred floor plans, and this one ticked all the boxes for us.

Currently have kitchen on PS and dining table on DS. Would prefer it to be opposite arrangement. Not so much kitchen location as dining location. Would rather look out at my patio area instead of at the neighbors on their patio. But wouldn’t be a deal breaker either way.

Rather look at one neighbor's sewer connections rather than a neighbor's patio?

Somehow we all manage to look at our neighbors sewer connection while enjoying food and drink under our awnings, on our patios. It’s even easier to stomach from the comfort of a dining table inside the coach.

We prefer a mid door coach with the kitchen next to the door. Its better for passing food in and out when I do the grilling and Nan does the indoor stuff. Having an awning shading the side behind the fridge is another plus. I'm not at all fond of plumbing or the fridge in a slide and we like the kitchen as well as the bed fully usable with the slides in. Bedroom slide can be on either side, but prefer not to have an LR slide over the patio area. You loose space under the awning and access to convenient storage for chairs, grill etc. in a deep locker.

I agree with loosing space under the awning with a living room slide on passenger side. We have slide on both sides of the living room. Not a problem to put the passenger side one in if we need the room.

Both the living room slides have the storage compartments come out with them, so access to them is the same in or out.

And you are spot on about the mid door. Great when entertaining and bringing out appetizers or drinks for our guests. We also do a lot of cooking outside on the combi oven/cook top. The awning is in for happy hour in this picture, but you can see what comes out with the slide.

We had the kitchen on the driver side in our 2007 Ellipse 40FD
It had one of the best floor plans Winnie ever designed.

We now have the kitchen on the passenger side in our 2020 Horizon.
It works with the Horizon because we have nothing but big and I mean big windows everywhere.
It’s truly amazing what you get to see and experience in a RV that has that much light and such a view. So it's really the view you get with the windows that matter. There is no other motorhome that has the view and windows that the Horizon has unless it is a Newell or a Marathon. You really have to stand it it to really understand.
I hate kitchens with no window in either side but especially on the passenger side.

Here is a video tour of our Horizon.

Yes, your compartments may come out with the slides, but I seriously doubt that they have pass through storage like I have. The ones that I have seen are only as deep as the slide is.

True, I do not have pass through storage except at the rear. We have plenty of "stuff" as it is.

I just like the fact I don't need to preform a contortionist act to get to that stuff whenever the slides are out. it's sort of the difference between a chest freezer and an upright freezer. Stuff isn't quite so hard to get at. We have friends that have pass through storage and it's a gong show many times when he's looking for something.

That’s when you need a full slide out bed that extends out either side.
