Choose your slide?

I know this sounds a bit wonky, but bear with me.

We've been looking at bunkhouse fifth wheels and really like the Sandpiper/Sierra 385QBOK. The drawback is that we don't necessarily need/want the outside kitchen - we'd rather have another set of bunks similar to what is found in the other slide in the bunkroom. I haven't talked to a dealer about it yet, but is it possible to delete the slide with the outside kitchen and just replace it with a slide similar the one that opposes the outside kitchen?

Thanks for any insight anyone might have.

Seriously doubt that this is possible for a mass production RV manufacturer.
A custom RV manufacturer could, like Marathon, could.

Have you asked at dealers ?? I didn't have what you're looking for, but our 2018 Cherokee had two configurations. One was two opposing slides that gave us a 8x14 backroom bunk house. two bunks and two sofa's. (think that's what you're looking for. The other model was outdoor kitchen and was just like the 5ver you're looking at.

Thatís exactly what Iím looking for. I havenít checked with the dealer yet - I wanted to be armed with info from this group first.

Thanks!

We purchased our 282RK without the outside kitchen. Now there is no slide on that side, so it doesn't quite match up to your request. We saved a little over $1,000 by not wanting the outside kitchen and gained a bunch of storage space. I

I should add that the access panel is still functional from the outside and the interior space was nicely finished.
