King of the Road fivers used to have a slide out DECK that was under the frame so you could have your own dry place for a chair
the veranda is to me thinking, WHY rv you can never leave your rig ???
I was at a county fair once where this carney had a HUGE otr type trailer it had a big porch on the entire length , the trailer had few windows and numerous slides that looked like they were built like an aircraft carrier
