The FL area seemed neat the first time I walked in one. Then I started looking and thinking. If I want headroom (I am 6'4") and still want storage space below, I am going to have a very high profile unit. I have to go up the stairs just to get a cookie while watching TV. Some of our most memorable camp sites have been where we could back in to the bay overlooking Homer sound, or a gorgeous lake with the mountains in the back, pour a hot chocolate, turn the recliner around and enjoy. None of that available with a front living room. That is one thing I hated about my four motorhomes - - typically no view out the front window other than other motorhome's windshield and that is just how campgrounds are laid out.
Just my observations. I see little to no advantage but lots of negs.
