Yes, we have had the same challenge because Chris is 6'3" so that's one reason we've always had Bigfoots. This is a great time to ask because we just got back from the Fort Langley, BC, meet and there were three Bigfoot 5th wheels there! They said this was the first time they had a Bigfoot 5th wheel -- and there were three! The other two Bigfoot 5ers were very nice (newer than ours) and it was fun comparing notes. We really enjoy seeing so many cool FGRVs at the meets, but wwe do notice that for most brands other than Bigfoot, Chris bumps his head inside.
Anyway, we have a single axle
Bigfoot 5th wheel and it has LOTS of of headroom, even after Chris installed the new air conditioner this summer. We have a true queen size bed with about 10 inches to spare the foot of the bed, so we're very happy with it. We estimate our dry weight
at 2,750. It's late and I know our calendar is booked tomorrow, but hopefully we can get out and measure the actual height in the next few days.
One thing to note since you also mentioned weight
. The Bigfoot 5th wheel dual axles are great, and many people prefer a dual axle
-- but it does add over 900 pounds to the weight
. It also decreases the interior headroom. The dual axle makes the interior sit up higher -- there is literally an extra step up to the floor level. Even in the dual axles we visited this weekend, Chris still had plenty of headroom, but it might be closer with AC installed. For us, anyway, we're very pleased with our single axle. We realized this weekend that gives us a bit more storage space as well, with taller upper cabinets. Don't get me wrong -- you can't go wrong with either a dual or a single axle Bigfoot 5th wheel if you're able to find one in decent shape. It's just for us, we're happier with the lighter weight and increased room. You might want to search the forum for previous discussions about dual axles. Good luck!
