Nice links, Carolyn alomst wanted to trade in the new Monty when she saw the 3585. Only thing she did not like was no desk area and no place for the stackable wash and dryer (she does not want the washer in the bedroom).
Jim, you are welcome. The 3585 is the one I liked too but also didn't like for the very same reasons as yous. I thought, with us, we could remove one of the recliners though and purchase a small desk! However, I would hate to loose the drawer space in the bedroom and then it also appears you lose the extra little closet by the bed side. Otherwise though, I really like it and would consider it.
There is a pull divider for the bedroom in the 3585 we looked at. The other thing that I could not understand is the so called computer desk...it is by the kitchen counter facing the living room...the pull out is to small for a keyboard and you would have to have a very small laptop too! I dont know why they call it a computer desk!
As for getting into the fridge I dont know as the slide just might be in the way..but then again maybe there is just enough room to open the fridge.
