While I personally love our mid-entry Palazzo door, and wouldn't want to deal with a 'front entry' door, I'm sure that you get used to it over time... though missing the pull out desk will be a tough one for a while... it's just nice to have that while you are driving, and even while you are parked.
I've transported many different makes and models and floorplans of gas and diesel coaches, including the Aria, Palazzo, DiscoveryLXE, BerkshireXLT, Newmars, Coachmen, Renegade, etc... all are slightly different - but I've noticed that a few provide a 'swing out' type of desk top on the passenger seat, which might be an option. I'm not as much of a fan of this type of option, because it requires you to constantly be putting it 'back' in it's storage mode whenever you need to access in/out the doorway.... not good.
