There would be three feet less of "seamed" length if you laid them from stret to curb.
Assuming a 7' wide trailer 28' as opposed to 31' if seamed front to back.
Given the monocoque construction of the Airstream, I would think that a strength edge would be in going from the curb to the street. If you went lengthways there would be a seam down the middle of the trailer all the way from front to back.
The frame (main structure) is strongest from front to back, and laying the plywood perpendicular to the frame would tie the outriggers (not much beef there) to the shell a bit more securely.
My thoughts -
The factory installed the sheets of plywood curb to street, as far as I know.
