No bathroom access is a deal breaker for my wife..... and no access to at least 1/2 the fridge as well..

We have had access on all our rigs but I would not hesitate to deploy a slide as needed, do the same whenever we are overnighting at truck stops, Walmarts, rest areas, and casinos. Never gave it much thought as a deal breaker, using bathroom while underway or on the way is sporadic at best, not a determining factor for us when purchasing a rig. Like anything in life, if it matters to you that is the only thing that counts, enjoy your new RV.

As long as slides were selectable and I could bump the one slide out a foot or so for bathroom access I would have no problem with it.

Much ado about nothing. Most gas stations or truck stops have plenty enough room that you can extend the slide the 1 foot that is necessary to get to the bathroom. Having 3 young kids, my wife prefers to use our bathroom when traveling, rather than playing public bathroom roulette. We've never once had a problem.

in my opinion the larger the unit the more important it becomes. small units are easy to manuver in and around smaller places to use public facilities, having said that I think it would be a deal breaker not having access to a bathroom and bed at least as the older I get the less I want to go into public facilities.

No access to a bathroom would be a deal breaker for me. My last fifth-wheel had access to sofa, dining table, bathroom and bedroom area. I had to bring the slide-in during a Tropical Storm and was glad I could access all the areas I needed for 3 days.

It would be a deal breaker for us also. With our Front Bath it just requires us to roll over the bed to get there, mush easier than trying to put the slide out.

We make do with the 5er without potty and sleeping access OK. If I absolutely have to have access, I can take the bathroom door off the hinges (really easy) and can squeeze in, then access to the bed through the 2nd sliding bathroom door. The fridge has access if I remove the parrot cage from its travel position. Been using it this way for over 8 years. Where there is a will there is a way to make do.

We can squeeze by to get to the bathroom, but I usually just open 2 truck doors and water the road shoulder, or a parking lot, or...
