Solera R Or W floorplan

I knew I wanted the R floor plan, and now comes the W. I wanted the Queen size bed with the walk around capability, and now there is another choice. Any thoughts on the comparable virtues of the two floor plans??

I think a lot depends on how much storage space you want / need. I certainly like the open look of the W plan - it seems to have lots more living space. But other discussions of the differences indicate that the R has quite a bit more storage space, particularly in the basement compartments.

Of course, both units are fairly limited when it comes to capacity for additional weight, so that may be as much of a limiting factor as cubic feet.

I want to make a decision between R and W also and soon as I want to put in the order in January. I was really happy with R, but the new W has a dinette and a front cocktail table, three seat belts at dinette, and more space with slide out. However, W's basement storage is considerably smaller, and over the dinette cabinets are gone. I wish I could see W in person. Even more photos or videos would help.

We purchased the R earlier this year and one of the reasons was for the outside basement storage it provided. Was looking at several othe models and had just about decided to purchase a Phoenix Cruiser but no place for lawn chairs or golf clubs. Am very happy with our Solera 24R. Think one just needs to look at what they think there needs are. We did not want a fixed dinette and replaced our sofa with a reclining loveseat and use tv trays when needed. Think both plans are great just decide what you think meets your needs. If you have the time I would sure want to try and compare the two plans side by side.
Good Luck

just a couple of thoughts:

get it with the bunk over the cab, remove and weigh the mattress, use that area for extra storage

the vehicle pulls trailers easily, so a small trailer ( tent or cargo ) would suffice for extra sleeping space or hauling when needed
