I have pusher and concur with the previous posters, it's not all roses though, there are two distinct downsides..
1. You sacrifice a huge amount of boot space.. in some puller or mid engined RVs this is big enough to house a small car.
2.Pullers are "cooling challenged"
Unlike pullers, pushers do not benefit from the ram air effect for cooling but rely on a large fan which sucks air up from the road and blows it through the radiator either at the back (as mine does) or through the sides.This uses up quite a few bhp and runs flat out irrespective of engine temperature, you also need to keep a close watch on the temperature gauge when climbing mountains in the heat.
My preferred layout would be the new Spartan chassis which is mid engined..
