'69 & '70 GT vs '71 Bath layout

I am looking at both at 1970 and a 1971 21' GT and wanted some opinion from the forum. The 1969 and 1970 GT both have the rear/side wet bath design, which was a change from '68. Airstream then went back to an across-the-rear layout of the bathroom in 1971. Is there any technical advantage to one layout over the other, or is it just a matter of taste. Did AS go back to the rear design because of some readily apparent performance issue? I have been reluctant to go with these models as I am not a fan of the wet-bath, but I find myself drawn to them nonetheless.

Its just personal preferance. I am converting my rear bath 71 to a curb side wet bath. We are also putting in a dedicated bed accross the back where the original bath was and moving the galley to the street side. We are gaving up a hugh bath for a hugh bed. The 6 cubic foot fridge will be aft of the entry door. A dinette will be forward.
