Aside from moving 2 of the seams from the front corners back onto a flat surface, is there any other real world advantages to a nose cone vs conventional siding?

Put your feet towards the front of the camper.

I don't think there's a rule that you have to put your head up there.

I am a guy who prefers to take troubles head on.
The issue is that I like to change my position several times over the night.
So with no headboard, my pillow always ends on the floor.
It is amazing how much 2" of mattress elevation can change.
My Fleetwood originally had pretty tall mattress + storage under it.
I removed storage, what was like 3 or 4 inches and that made huge difference in space above.

Now if Host can ever learn to build the whole thing from molded fiberglass, they’ll start to have something.
