I don't agree with those who say not to worry about the trailer having a little less headroom than needed for standing up straight. My only complaint with our new Escape 21' is that I can't quite stand up straight in it, and I find it quite annoying to have to walk around hunched over. Maybe if we had a shorter trailer I wouldn't find it so annoying because then there wouldn't be that much room to walk around in anyway. I'm a bit over 6'4" tall and the Escape does NOT have the advertised 6'5" of headroom. We did have an EggCamper and it had more than enough interior height for me.

My husband is 6'2" and I have watched him struggle with low clearance areas for over 30 years. In one of the TT, a 24', I watched him hit his head a few times. I don't think that people who don't have this issue really understand.

Every time I see someone post that you don't walk around that much, I mention it and for him and he just shakes his head. Boom! So many other things on one's mind to bother with step 1, step 2, step 3, duck!

Yes, it really depends on the person. My husband is continually standing up in short trailers even though I tell him to sit down and hitting his head.
He hates being in trailers he can't stand up in without bending his head.

I'm 6' 4"and stay in a 17' Casita Liberty because of the longer bed. I really don't mind kinda ducking over, I thought it would bother me, but really doesn't. The camper is so small you can't move real quick in any direction!

I'll say it again Eggcamper long bed and lots of head room!!!!!!!
I don't think any one here is as tall as me (6'6") and I am sick of hitting my head. In my egg it never happens.

My 6'2" husband finds our '89 Bigfoot comfortable. He does have to watch his head around the knob that opens our fantastic fan, and going in and out the door! We do not have a/c. He is the only one who uses the shower in our trailer.

Tacoma tow capacity

My 2008 Tacoma 4x4 V6 with tow package claims 6500 lbs. tow capability.
Don't know how that plays out in the real world, but it sounds like it should tow most trailers here. Anyone test this?

I'm pulling an Escape 21 around with a 6400 lb rated Taco with NO problems.........probably around 4200 pounds loaded.

I am only 5'11" but I learned my lesson on my first sailboat that had about 5'4" headroom in the cabin and I hated it and it went up for sale very quickly. Sorry I move around my cabin and don't want to be hunched over. My ParkLiner is nterior Height: 6′ 5″
Interior Width: 6′ 10″

It is plenty comfortable for me.

Just know that they are all-electric, so you'll need hook-ups or a generator to be fully operational.

My EggCamper is tall inside and there is no ceiling mounted air conditioner. AC is in a different location. My trailer is for sale. Currently I'm in Arizona but will be back home in Michigan on Feb 17.

'08 4x4 V6 Tacoma Towing:

That's good to know, Charlie, in case we decide to tow something larger than the Compact II.
Thanks for mentioning your 'real world' experience. I'm thinking of maybe a Bigfoot 17. We recently adopted a big-boned Border Collie. Used to have a Doxie!

What about when the tall person goes horizontal - bed length? I read in some thread here that the Eggcamper bed is 53" x 75", is that correct? Does it have a shorter side toward the back and longer as you move away from the back curve or is it more uniform in size than that? My husband comes up with "I could sleep with my knees up." and I frown and say "Yeah, in my back, I don't think so." For us, we have 3 adults so it is a major challenge and we are ready to purchase but have nail down what it is that will work. Escape and Oliver are out of our comfort zone on price. Thanks!
