Nature's Head Vent Location - Wall or Floor?

Skoolie Fam!
I've been searching for over an hour - so now I turn to you.

Looking to install our Nature's Head vent and trying to determine if it is best to go through the side wall, or the floor.

Does anyone have any experience with their NH toilet vent? Can you shed some light on your venting methods and if you have any regrets about your location?

If I vent through the side, will I get funk wafting back up through the windows?

If I vent through the floor . . . will it just come up from underneath the bus, into the windows anyway?

Thank you in advance for your time and knowledge!

We went through the wall, less than a foot from the toilet and just below the upper rub rail. We only got a whiff of stank when the wind was blowing against that side of the bus. It would counteract the fan, basically. It only happened a few times. We pretty much always had our windows down and never had it come in the window. You could stand outside next to the vent and not really notice it too much. I'd considered running it to the bottom of the bus but this was simpler. I think either way should work fine.

We went through the floor. Just make sure your vent tube faces aft or when you drive it blows air in. Don’t ask how I know.........

Saw your post about the shower drain. We cobbled together some PVC to make a U-shaped trap to go around the frame. It wasn't close to the exhaust system like yours seems to be though.
