Dump side question

This is probably a dumb noob quertion but I'm restoring a '60 Pacer and installing grey and black tanks. The toilet and sink are on the curb side so the tanks are on that side. I was planing on having the dump valve on the curb side but now I'm statring to wonder if there is a good argument for changing it to the street side. It would take a little extra plumbing and more pipe under the trailer but it's not to late to change. Is having the dump on the curb side a bad move?

Most campgrounds have all hookups on street side. Otherwise your sewer connections, etc. would be by your door. Not sure I'd like all that next to my feet while sitting under the awning.

Perhaps more to the point most campgrounds without hookups have a dump station on a one-lane, one-way road to encourage drivers to form a line when necessary. The dump station is on the street side of the rig in these cases. With only a curb side connection such a facility would be difficult to use any time a line is present.

Our connection is on the street side, too. Makes sense that there would be a standard...

Especially when your hose comes off during said dumping process...

I think you definitely want the poop dispenser (saw somebody else call it that and now I can't get it out of my head) on the street side. Many campgrounds with pull thru sites are designed specifically that way. Yes, you can extend your awning over the electric, water and sewage..but......put in a bit more pipe, I think you will be happier in the long run.

Thanks for the quick responses. Not what I was hoping to hear, but pretty much what I expected. I'm sendin' my poop out the street side.
