Curbside vs Streetside

Hello there,
My wife and I previously pulled a travel trailer for eight years, and more recently have been driving a motorhome for about four years. I can't seem to get it straight which side of the TT or MH is curbside and which is streetside. Can anyone help?

From your drivers seat looking out the windshield, the curbside is on your right, the streetside is to your left. The door to your trailer is almost always on the curb side.

From sitting in the drivers position, the curb side is the right side, the street side is the left.

Let me get this straight. When you park, you can't tell which side is next to the curb?

The driver sits on the street side.

Ha,ha,ha. When I park my MH, it's usually in a barn, on a campsite, or in my driveway. I don't think I have ever parked it in a parking space. Not too many are long enough to park a 31 footer.

However, now that you mention it, when one parallel parks a car, the right side is usually next to the curb, unless one parks on the left hand side on a one way street in which case you know where this is going.

I had some pretty colorful ideas about what that 31 footer must have looked liked parked.

We could start a debate if it's called streetside or roadside or even starboard or port.

I can live with Curbside and Streetside. Starboard and Port make good sense, also. Thanks to all for your quick responses.

When parked at the curb on a two way street, the side on the curb is the 'curb side'.
