Flat-nose vs dog-nose

Hi! I'm looking to purchase a bus and would like to know: flat-nose or dog-nose? What do you all prefer and why? Thank you!

The bus will be used for recreational trips (not living on it full-time) for a family of 4. We plan on exploring the country; nothing crazy as far as terrain goes. I appreciate your comments in advance! Thank you!

Flat nose has more buildable floor space than a dog nose. Some say FE flat nose is hotter up front ( I didn't notice that). Some say the dog nose is easier to work on the engine, but I don't buy knowing I'm going to be doing a bunch of engine work. Flat nose takes a different technique while driving with the steer wheels behind you instead of in front of you.
