Palomino thinking outside the box. Put that sofa on a slide and I'd buy one. I know many have put decks on there own campers but as far as I know this is the first one mass produced.

Weird idea, but seems implemented pretty well.

How many here are looking for one of those for your TC? Feel free to post.

I don't see the purpose for the deck.
What's wrong with the ground??

They put side door in 10-8" camper, what is impressive.
But deck with no fire pit is not much use for me.

For people who don't like nature to be out in nature?

We have friends with on on the side of the 5er and only useful thing is it makes a nice place to set up a buffet line when we all get together for dinner.

I wonder, on this and other side entry campers, if it is ever an inconvenience needing to have a fair amount of free space on the curb side to deploy the stairs. Both in a campsite and in the grocery store parking lot.

I've considered a side entry but this worry has always made me wonder. What are peoples experience?

We've never parked that close to picnic tables or cars in the parking lot to have an issue with the side entry on our Northstar 12STC. Of course I'm a door ding freak, and always park way away from other vehicles wherever I go. Walking the extra 50 feet into and out of the store isn't a concern - door dings are.

As far as campsites - We've never run across a campsite so small that we had to worry about pulling out our 3 entrance stairs. I don't think we'd stay someplace that tight anyway.

The side entry makes it much nicer when we're towing our SxS trailer - we can leave the trailer attached and still pull out our stairs as usual.

I have slide outs so the stairs don't extend that much farther. Although I was able to clock truck and trailer so I could use rear entry stairs, side entry is more convenient. We do not camp streetside, so extending the stairs and putting the stairs back up when at curb is not an issue.

Now people can stop asking if the camper is going to tip over forwards on the jacks, and start asking if the camper is going to tip over BACKWARDS!
