I’m gonna be ordering and adventurer 910 DB next year and after doing some research I find the bathroom cannot be accessed without the slide out out. At first I was really disappointed about the “ inconvenience “ of hitting a switch . But now I’m resigned to
hitting the switch. Now I’m just curious,( I never had a slide out before) am I missing something or does it just take 30 seconds or so to bring out slide out? If that’s the case Iare there other factors to be considered about bathroom access before I commit to the purchase? Thanks

If you’re just using the bathroom, I wouldn’t even put the slide out any more than needed so it would be less than 30 seconds.

That said, our bathroom door is a slider and a next to the rear door so we can slip in without opening the slide at all.

Having to move the slide some wouldn’t affect my purchase.

Yah, agree.
Just slide out enough to get by..
Use it all the time and when at Wally-world, Walmart for cold stuff, same thing just slide out enough to get by on and make sure you're in the parking spot with enough room to slide it out, apx a foot or less, no big deal.

I find I really don’t use it in the TC unless we are parking for a bit. Otherwise, there are bathrooms all along most roads in the form of rest areas or businesses to buy diesel, etc. Also, once I empty my tanks on the way home … I really avoid using the bathroom.

That being said, it really takes little time, and you are better off not to open any more than you need if the ground isn’t level.

I've gotta say, I LOVE the floorplan in my Lance 1131. 100% usable with the single slide in. Friend has a triple slide and it's a dream when they're out, but totally unusable when they're in.

Same with the 1191. We use it all the time with the slide in, still plenty of space.

^What do your posts have to do with the OPs question?
Just felt the need to chime in with useless info about a totally different camper ?

Main purpose for me to own RV is to have my own bathroom and shower.
That become even more important during pandemic.
Beside my DW takes 15-20 minute to use rest stop bathroom, when she can be done in 5 in the RV.
I never hesitated to leave some waste in tanks till the next trip and even in triple digits temperatures never had a smell around RV.
So if you need to spend 30 seconds for slide before you access your bathroom, don't wait till the last moment, or carry spare pants.

I had a DP with a bath and a half and with the slides in you couldn't get to either of them. Never again. My current one the bath room is right there even with the slides in.

Probably a good plan.
