bathroom fan vent exit?

I am getting ready to re roof a 5x10 low slope bathroom roof.
while I am doing this I want to instal a vent fan, can I run the vent out the side under the rake, like a clothes dryer vent? my thoughts are this would keep things simple by not useing a vent through the roof, and hopefully less chance for leaks around a roof vent.

Yes, you can run a bathroom vent through the roof, the wall or a soffit...just as long as it is vented to the outside.
Good Luck!
