Yes, my oil filter is right next to the firewall. There is just enough room to get the wrench on the filter to remove / tighten and there are no hoses in the way. It's a little tight to get the filter out when removing (without spilling oil), but very doable (in my opinion).

My engine compartment is hose heavy! Is your oil filter near the engine fire wall?
Thanks

I'm able to change the oil in my 1983 Saratoga without removing any hoses.

Well, at least you're guaranteed a quality reply! :)
We'll be covering oil changes in an upcoming issue. I'll ask the writer to talk about the Saratoga and other models that require extra work. Stay tuned!
