I like to see anything but white smoke.
Agree picnic side could be a problem at times but hardly ever picnic with engine running. However, loading from the passenger side door may attract some fumes I'd rather not breathe when I'm idling.

My 2 cents,

John, I like that idea and was planning on doing the same if I decide to reroute my exhaust. since my bus is 3/4 size with smaller wheels, I don't have the luxury of large under belly storage options compared to my full size brethren. as I am still building I am still undecided about an indoor lav and the need for a black tank or not. either way, I will make my hookups all on the driverside which seems the industry standard as far as easy of hooking up to power, water, waste, etc.

Moving my exhaust afforded me the room to mount my black tank directly under the throne which worked out well for having that where it should be for campground dump facilities. I have room back there also for storage of electrical cord, hoses etc and firewood.
Hope yours turns out as you wish, good luck.
