If both slides are closed, is there room to walk through the unit? Can you get to the fridge if you decide to stop off on the side of the road to make a quick sandwich for lunch?
Now - to each their own...some would hate the setup we have, but it works for us. Floorplans and desired layouts are totally individual. For the most part, you don't know what works .. and what doesn't .. until you try it!
Good luck!
We just traded our TT because you couldn't get to the Fridge or the bathroom with the slides closed. With kids or even just the wife taveling, when you got to go, you go to go. I agree ask them to close the slides so you can see what's what. JMO

I had a Jayco JayFlight G2 23 FB, my wife wanted more space and more cabinets, We ended up with a 2012 Jayco JayFlight 29 RLDS (rear lounge with 2 slides) It's a great trailer with lots of space and lots of cabinets, A friend has a Dutchman 277 RLS and it a very nice trailer, we were going to get one of those but Dutchman now has a 278 instead of the 277 and it's not bear as nice as the 277. If you find one check it out.

Thanks for all the help everyone. Great advice about access with the slides closed. That is why I like the rear bath models, but didn't think about fridge. We never did ask the salesman to close it. I'd be you can't get by that center isle when closed.....humm

When buying our new tt several years back, a fellow camper suggested we consider what type of camping we would do; narrow campsites are not dual slide friendly (a slide on both the street as well as curbside). For us, that wasn't a concern, although while traveling last year we ran across one c/g that was pretty tight.

How exciting to be looking at new tt's... Happy shopping!

Dual slides on opposite sides can possibly decrease your outdoor living area, especially the side where the campfire and picnic table are. Alot of these sites are really tight. I also do love the 26RKS w/bunks layout. I think I would of considered purchasing that one had I done more research, but I am in love with our 32bhds...Not sure what I'd do without the outdoor fridge. We no longer have to carry an extra cooler & making sure we also have ice.

All great info and suggestions....thanks everyone. I see this is going to be a challenge b/c the DW does NOT like the rear living area with chairs. She does like a couch there, but not chairs (???) Hey, just because I married her doesn't mean I understand her We have the opposing slides on our current Class C and haven't had a problem with sites, etc., so I don't see it being a problem for a TT. We are primarily State park, Nat'l Forest campers. NOt too much RV park types. From your suggestions I have some models now that we can look at. And the search continues........

I chose a Forest River toy hauler for our first camper. DW chose our 2nd and current one. The Wolf Pack had zero problems but inconvenient for her. Eagle has had a few problems, but because she is happy with it, life is good. Just sayin'.

We took 1 of our chairs out and had the dealer order us a second couch for that slide. Now I have the L shaped couch on 1 side and a regular sleeper sofa on the other. The regular 1 is a LOT bigger sleeping area than the L couch in length and width FYI.
