Wow, conflicting opinions.

I don't pull a toad but I do use the Nexus lane and for that the truck crossing is clearly the best. The coned Nexus lane at the Peace Arch is quite narrow with signs very close to the mirrors.

At the SR243 Pacific/Truck crossing at Blaine the Nexus lane involves a bit of a left turn as you enter the yellow security barriers and could be tricky if pulling.

Personally I think it would be great if they'd allow bigger RV's to use the truck lane on the right of the building.

I went through what is called the truck crossing and it is so narrow that I broke my mirror, cost me $400.00 for a new one. I now live in Alberta and the Coutts crossing is so much wider.

Can't speak on entering the US, but when we came back to Canada at the Lynden Truck Crossing, We had no problem getting through even with the construction going on.

I would echo this as well. Abbotsford (Aldergrove actually) has a lane for RV's (far right side I believe) and has pretty gentle approaches.
