Rear engine or front?

Just looked at a few buses today. Liking the 28' - 32' sizes. Having a hard time figuring out if a front or rear engine is going to be better for us. Has anyone run into any clearance issues with a rear engine? Such as national parks, RV parks, daily driving? Due to the fact that rear engines have a lower ride height. We were also warned about dirt roads being an issue with rear engines.

Which one would have better storage underneath?

Hands down, REs. You have unlimited storage options without a pesky drivetrain or exhaust system getting in the way.

we had that in mind, that the drive train would be out of the way and we would have the space between the frame wells available, in front of the rear axle
