yes, that's correct.
the bench is a fuller width and the standing space about 6 inches larger.
in fact it's possible to bend over in the shower of a 31/34 (they are the same mold)
and it's possible to towel OFF inside the shower with the door closed.
the bottle neck on the 31/34s is in front of the toilet and lav sink,
since the shower door opens OUT into that space.
the split in the 30 makes use of the hallway for standing space and has more room around the crapper.
with the 31 and the free standing dinette,
it can be moved/repositioned to better use the sofa/bed.
and the chair FOLD if not in use.
with the standard dinette in a 31
about 1/3 of the sofa is tight like the back seat of a small car.
one loses the sleeping potential with a free standing dinette,
but a C or L shaped 'booth style' dinette could be fabricated with seating on 2-3 sides and open up the sofa area better.
while traveling west to the football game are there any dealers close to your route?
it could be fun to stop briefly an look, if any have them in stock.
