Rounded versus squared rear roof ends???

Just a bit curious as to any particular advantage of one design over the other. I notice the rear exterior wall where it meets the roof of my Flagstaff Fiver is rounded. This is one of the very few manufacturers that have this design. Most manufactures have the squared edge. Is one better than the other. Your thoughts.

Prime Time endwalls are squared. I don't know if this will answer your question, but here's what Prime Time has to say about their endwalls.

Endwall Construction
ETERNABOND represents more than just sidewall construction. In order to save money, most manufacturers choose to use non-laminated wood studding in places you might not expect – particularly the end walls. Not at Prime Time! Using the same advanced construction techniques found in our 5-layered sidewall, the end walls of your Prime Time recreational vehicle are built with lightweight, yet strong construction specifications.

Not sure how others might be built? Simply look closely at a rear wall. Is it flat, smooth, and solid to the touch? Then it’s probably built like a Prime Time. Is it wavy, bowed out, and spongy to the touch? Probably not built like a Prime Time.
