Excellent point, which I tried to make as well. Experiencing each prospective trailer in-person, is best. In lieu of that, the manufacturer's stated dimensions (or is it "dementians") remain the only fair comparisons.

Comparing the manufacturer's dimensions...

Casita 17= 6' 1-1/4"

Escape19= 6' 5"

Now everyone is talking about newer trailers...A budget wasn't mentioned but what about one of the older pop top ones? At least the height could always be raised to fit a giant

I was just going to suggest a pop-top! Our Compact II has plenty of headroom ( as long as you duck at the door). A Compact Jr would have an even longer bed. If you have lots of time to look you can wait for the kind you want. Bed length should be an even bigger consideration than headroom IMHO.

HAPPY HUNTING!

I'm 5'11, and lived aboard a few sail boats for about 10 years. I wouldn't consider owning anything that I cant stand up in and stretch a little. My boats all had around 6' but my ParkLiner is like a Palace at like 6'5!
