There are many trailers being made that are very high. They give a tremendous amount of wind resistance. Also, people that own them complain of Tree Strikes.

For me, I don’t want to heat and cool large amounts of cubic feet of space. Also, I don’t want the lost of mileage because of excess height.

So keep’m low. 6’ 2” seems like a good compromise to me.
Mike....in our previous RV, a C-class Couchmen Catalina Sport, what I found lacking was the over abundant head room, which made it a wind catcher. It wasn't a looong one, only 22'. My son-in-law is 6'3", which makes our Scamp a little tight for him. I would also agree with Greg A who suggested a larger bed would be more important than the taller ceiling. A wider bed would be nice in our Scamp.

As for the poll choices, does not have the negative choices only yes options.
I am about 6' and I bought one.....not sure if I would be considered taller person or not? Needs an option such as: As a taller person, I would not consider buying a trailer with limited headroom. and As a shorter person, I would not care........etc.

Would you, a taller person consider buying a trailer with limited headroom?
Would you, a shorter person care that you had more than ample headroom when planning a purchase?

I did not know how to answer? Interesing Idea.
