I have the 2011 CKWS and from what I know the difference is the wardrobe slide on the CKWS. This was a design change midway through the 2011 model year.

Welcome!
I think you are the only other person on this forum with a CKSS!
The CKWS has a closed in bathroom, which makes the actual bedroom a bit more tight than with the CKSS.
The entertainment center area is a bit different as well, with a desktop and a chair there. The television pops up out of the counter.
And the kitchen layout is reversed.
They are very similar in most respects, and both great layouts.
Hope you like your CKSS as much as we like ours!

Rugged, now why didn't I think of doing that!
Saves a lot of mental exertion!
Our CKSS is slightly different, as our entertainment slideout has a storage locker on the outside. And there is no step up to the bed area, as our bathroom and bedroom are on the same level, which makes the basement underneath simply HUGE! As ours is probably one of the last of the CKSS's, I imagine your diagram is for a slightly older one, maybe the 2010.
And our seating area at the back, where the recliners are, is just like yours.

Yes, ours does have a fireplace, and we actually use it quite a bit.
We like to camp in the fall when the campgrounds are quiet, and some of the nights get a bit chilly. Pretty nice with the extra heat from the fireplace, and the "fire" adds a nice atmosphere.
