Ok?... on my rig the curb/passenger/door side is my site and hook ups are on the street/driver side (neighbor site)

Hookups are on the street ( drivers) side. If you have neighbors on each side, the view on either side is of your neighbors ... :-)

To the OP's question, We have never had any issues having slides on both sides.... but some parks ( e.g. KOA) will ask if you have slides on both sides, it really doesn't come into play. If a site is so small that you don't have a couple of feet for a slideout between you and the neighbor, that's not a place I'd be staying.

Far from a common issue but yes, we've been in sites where opposing slides wouldn't fit.

Our bigger issue is most of the units we've looked at with opposing slides sacrifice storage. If you are weekending or minimalist, this may not be a big issue.

We've been full-time for 12 years. Never had a problem with slide outs. There was one RV park in AB that had to be built before trailers had slide outs. We took a pass on it.

Our 5er has 3 slides. Have stayed at parks ranging from smaller and larger state parks, COE parks and commercial RV parks of all sizes and never had any issues with slides on both sides. Yes, some are tighter and might require moving the trailer a little forward or backward, but never encountered one we could not fit in to in 17 years.

While travelling, sometimes I overnight at a Walmart, roadside rest stop, casino, friends houses (driveway or street parking), or other locations where my RV (30' class A no slides) must fit into a standard 9' x xx' parking space designed for automobiles. Those areas won't be available to you if you must extend your slides to have a usable floor plan. In most RV parks, IMO, width is not a problem. In older parks, sometimes the length is.

In one roadside rest area, I saw a long haul trucker tear the slide off a 36' 5'er when pulling out. Truck drivers quote: "I couldn't believe it (the slide) extended THAT far! I didn't see it in my mirrors."

Momentum RV was right, I did mean to write wide slide on DRIVERS side, not curb side. Thanks for the correction!

I be more concerned if I could use it with the slides in. If you can't get in to use it for the bathroom or make a lunch at a rest stop along the way. Or sleep over night at a wal-mart or rest stop, would be high on my want list.

Sitting in my rig right now with all three slides deployed. We love all the extra room. We don’t camp at Walmart, but we’d figure something out if we did.

Never once have the slides been an issue.
