When the slide is not extended

We are considering a Shamrock 23SS (2013-15, depending on $ and availability), and wonder whether it is possible to get by the sofa and kitchen to the back end (wardrobe, bathroom) when the slide is not extended. Thanks!

We learned our lesson and will never buy another RV without making sure you can walk to the bathroom with the slides closed, you can dress in the bathroom with elbow room to spare and you have enough space around the bed to enter/exit with ease.

That was high on our 'hit' list too except we could care less about getting around the bed with the slide closed. Fridge and potty were a must.

Thanks, Dado39 - but we're looking at a 23SS, not a 233S. Not only want to be able to access 'fridge and bathroom en route, but want to be sure we can load up with ease. (Being able to sit at the dinette for lunch en route would be nice, too, when it's rainy or windy.)

X2.
That was one of our reasons for going with the 23ss, easy to get to the fridge and bathroom while traveling if needed. So nice to just load up and go as well.

Guess it depends on the layout. I have a Salem 27RKSS and can walk to back of T/T. Cant open fridge (which i like. No door opening while traveling) If i want to access the fridge it takes about 19 seconds or less to move the slide 2'. Not a big deal to me.

Yes, you can get by the dinette to access the fridge, wardrobe & bathroom with the slide in. There is not tons of room, but, you can get by.

My only concern would be the bathroom. Anytime I needed the fridge or dinette I should be far enough off the road (I.e. in a rest stop, parking lot or other) that I can put the slide out without worries.

Bathroom on the other hand is something that might be needed on the side of the road. In fact, we have had to use ours on the side of the road. ("Daddy, I gotta go and I gotta go right now!") In our current TT the bathroom's blocked by the slide and I can say from experience it's not fun trying to get far enough over on the shoulder of an onramp to put out the slide far enough to get to the bathroom.
