Noticed the same thing when we bought our 310BHDS, drivers side door is smaller. Found this out after I bought some storage bins to use in the passthrough and I couldn't get them out the one side.

My Wildwood 31KQBTS is the same way, absolutely nothing in the way of my door either.
I dunno why they did that.

We were told that they make the passenger side door bigger because that is the loading side (where entry doors are located) of the camper

I guess it does encourage you to load from the curb side rather than the street side.

Hmmm, "they" need to come watch me load up for a trip or load up for the trip home. In the drivers side (as in the tow vehicle) door, the smaller one there will be two (2) plastic totes which will go approximately half-way through the storage area. Then one fresh water hose with filter stuffed on the top of the totes. Two storage bags with the square yellow plastic leveling blocks and two (2) big triangular shaped rubber wheel chocks. On the curb side, with the larger door, the gas grill goes in first butting up against the totes. Then my cast iron five (5) quart dutch oven along with my round cast iron cooker. Yes I do cook a lot over an open fire. In addition to the table that came stuffed up in the top of my storage area, that's another story as to getting it out and putting it back, I have a fiberglass top table that folds and then I stuff it on top of the grill. So maybe I don't necessarily agree that the drivers side is the "loading side". I believe we all do what we have to to get as much stuff into our storage areas. Now I have a new storage problem. The boss lady of the house won on our discussion as to getting a satellite dish set-up, so she bought a system. The dish, tripod and receiver. When I asked as to where this would be stored for transporting it, she just looked me straight in the eyes and said: "That's your problem". Life is fun.

Ha ha Good One. I guess they can tell us that to save the builder money.

This is the first camper we owned like this and this is the 6th one. I really miss the big slam shut doors on the Kodiak's those are my favorite camper but the local place stopped carrying them.

Access Door question

I have the same unit as you and we love it too! The access door being larger has to do with the removable table hanging in that area. We have the bigger door and to get at that table you need more access. Happy travels!

BINGO babalu55. Yes I do have the table and had never thought about that being the reason one door is larger. Makes sense.
I removed the table from the storage once, and just once. It was a real pain to put it back where it goes. I have a very similar table to store inside when we travel so I will use the table in the storage area as a back up.

That has nothing to do with the smaller door they stuck on the other side. I am not talking about the large door I'm talking about the smaller door. Both doors should be as big as possible and the same size.

My 322RLDS has the smaller door on the drivers side. Just the right of that door is the fill port for the fresh water tank. So, in the case of mine, there is a reason.
