Correct way to identify position on camper

Is there a uniform way to identify right side or left side on the camper? Ususally on a car it is driver/passenger side or when facing towards the front of the car, it is right/left. Just thought that would make it easier when identifying problems (especially windows)

"Curb side" and "street side".
Curb side is the door side of the trailer.

We use the terms, "curb side" and "street side". The entry door on my Airstream is "curb side".

While "curb side" and "street side" are the more common terms, these being Land Yachts, I suppose you could also refer to it in nautical terms... "port" and "starboard"... after all, they do have bulkheads, galleys, and heads...
