Having owned our 32 BHDS only since this past July, and not seen it since the 3rd week of Oct (in winter hibernation), I had to stop and think where the fresh water fill was for a second! Lol Maybe it is just me, but it seems like it depends on where the kitchen sink/ cabinets are. Easier for the manufacture to run and hide the required plumbing.

Both of our last 2 trailers were street side. Guess I didn't think much about it. Can see advantages to both sides. Curb side being safer if you have the tt parked in the street while loading up/ filling for a trip. More convenient on street side to fill at the fresh water by the dump station.

BUT.... If the dump station has more than one "lane", what about pulling in so there is a lane on your right? Just use the fresh water outlet on the lane next to you (curb side of your tt)? Of course, only if it isn't being used by someone.

Some standards would be nice in the building of trailers as I'm sure they wouldn't put the doors on the opposite side just because they could or would they Oh well gives me something to think about during the winter while I am waiting to get back to the great outdoors.

Saw a KZ Durango Fiver @ the Hershey show that had a Door on the Driver/Street side about 2/3 from the front. It was a front Living room so the door opened into the hallway then right into the Bathroom. Made more sense once you thought about it. Also easy to access all Connections, storage, etc.

A standard like that will likely happen about the same time the auto manufactures make filling the fuel tank for ALL vehicles all on the drivers side! Lol We would never have to remember/ figure out which side it's on when driving a different vehicle, or the "better half's car. And think about how much smoother the cars would move through a gas station.

Standards would be nice! In both the auto and rv industry..... Well, we can only hope and dream, right!

That's funny. I bought a used Subaru about 4 years ago and still find myself sometimes pulling in to fuel up on the drivers side only to realize it's on the other side.

TC,

Had a Grand Am, then a Cobalt I drove for work at the time. Every so often I did the same thing.

They make hose in all lengths. Just get a longer hose. I've never had a street side water fill. Always on the cub side. I like it better on the curb side. We boondock 90% of the time so I carry 3 extra 7 gal water jugs. I also have my battery door on the curbside. I have a table that we set up by the door near the fresh tank fill. I also have an extra 12V water pump for filling the fresh tank. The whole operation can be done on one side in one area.

The gravity fill on my 2013 Eagle 266RKS TT is on the curb side, as well. It bothered me, at first, but I got use to attaching a FW fill hose to the CG Dump Station FW hose, then tossing it under the trailer. My City Water inlet is on the rear of my trailer, and that IS a pain. What bothers me most, though, is my BW rinse inlet is at the street-side rear corner of my rig, but my dump is roughly in the center (street-side) of my trailer. First couple of times out, I had to pull back & forth, between the dump drain and the rinse hose. Then had to pull around and park with the FW fill hose on my curb side, to fill the FW tank.

So now I have two 25' sections of FW hose, and two 25' sections of garden hose (for the BW rinse). When I dump & fill, I've got hoses laying all over the dump station. I also carry a tub of disinfecting wipes, so I can clean them off while coiling them up. To keep from holding up other campers, I try to arrive & leave most state park campgrounds on Monday or Tuesday, when the dumpsites aren't very busy.

It works for me.

My 2014 287BHBE is the same. My old 1980 JayRaven is on the driver's side.
