since it's the two of us, we rarely use the back bed. so the wardrobe slide is not a positve nor the narrow skinny-butt padded bench.
the new entertainment center is also a negative for us. our 23SS is older so having the tv hooked into the cabinet by the door, works great for us. it's visible from all angles since it's freestanding, especially from the front bunk where we usually sleep.
Now, here are our reasons for buying the 23WS...
a) Definetely the shower (no more curtains)
b) The rear bedroom and here's why: Honesty here
1- My wife and I are snorers, both in our 60's and need our sleep at night. She will use the back room, and I will use the front bed.
2- I also watch television before falling asleep, and she doesn't. For this, I will bring the antenna connections to the small cabinet at the entrance and put a small television on that cabinet at night.
3- I also wake up very early in the morning, and I will be able to use the kitchen without waking up my wife who sleeps a little longer.
As for the pantry, since we never hang clothes when we go camping, I'll make a minor mod in the wardrobe closet and use part of it as a pantry.
This hybrid is not for everyone but, it is the best one for us.
