We have the pass throughs with joey beds. They make electric and manual ones. Push a button and they automatically slide out. Push it again and they retract. Best of both worlds....again, it's a personal preference. I don't like the restrictions of compartments that are not deep enough. IMHO, they create wasted space.....YMMV.......Dennis

As mentioned, no right or wrong, and opinions will vary.

We looked for a two driver side slide rig, as we did not want to have the slides on the passenger side. (Would have gone with a three slide, if the right coach popped up first, but it would have been with the third slide being in the bedroom.

I mentioned the slides, as this can make a difference in ease of usage with the pass thru's on joey sleds. I find it to be the best of both worlds.

1) On the driver side, getting in and our is an opportunity for exercise[emoticon]! I store our patio furniture, and items that I know as I'm making camp that I might want. So I pull those things out before opening the slide. If I do forget something, as Dennis mentioned, those sleds do bring things out to you pretty easy.

2) On the passenger side, the sleds bring everything out so you have great access.

I like the extra space and storage of the pass thru's, heated basements and warmer flooring. I will admit, that the units that have basements coming out with the slides, do provide easier access as a benefit. Also as mentioned, some coaches do have a restricting weight limit. And all of them, require a more substantial slide mechanism, to carry the extra weight.

They make different kinds, as different people want different storage options - so it works well...

Best,
Smitty
