Reversing the floor plan is a relatively unusual change, and although if works for some people (particularly single travelers), it certainly would not work for us. The Queen bed is priceless.
That would be my view also. Having a full time queen bed, for us, is the absolute priority. We'd never go back to a situation where the bed had to be turned into the dinette every day. Deleting the front window also might result in a darker gloomy interior in some settings. And lastly, the smaller bed would be a non-starter for us. Synchronized rolling over in unison wear's thin after a while. We put up with it in the Scamp because there wasn't any option but we wouldn't willingly do that again.

But we all have ours likes and dislikes, at the end of the day we all make decisions that we think are best for us.

Different stokes for different folks. We all have good points to make that favor their layout choice. Ultimately, for us the biggest driver for the rear dinette was the crawl-over for those middle of the night trips to the loo. By sleeping at different ends together that problem is solved. Resetting the dinette evening and morning is the price we pay to accommodate that resolution. We found a flip-up and flip-down table support that simplifies the chore.
Finally, one more point....
My wife and I go to bed at different times. She likes to sit up and read for a while before turning in. Being on different ends of the 19 accommodates this situation as well.

I gotta admit Gary you've got me rather stumped on this one. "By sleeping at different ends together" I hope we meet up out there one day as I want you to teach me that trick.

Hey Gary, how do you get into the fridge for a beer while the wife makes breakfast?

There are zero calories in cheese holes, eat as many as you want.

Thanks for coming out of the dinette. Truth be told there are more out there than care to admit this.
