A couple of things.
1) most dumping stations are set up on the trailers drivers side - to have to drag a slinky hose around or under the trailer to connect would be a big pain.
2) Secondly If you were having to travel to the nearest dump station with the tank full you would be adding a fair amount of weight
to the very front of the trailer.
3) I suspect you will have to mount the black tank so it is at least partly below the floor level if you are wanting to be able to sit on top of the flush toilet and use your front dinette as well. Doing that would reduce the ground clearance at the front of the trailer.... you *might* scrape the tank off on the first big speed dump you go over
