Trailer: No Trailer Yet

Can anyone make a few reccomendations for brands that have a taller headroom? I'm looking to purchase a used model in the next 6 months but it seems like alot of trailers in the 15-17' range don't have much more than 6'1" height.

Thanks for any help!

Most likely you will not find a used EggCamper out there, because they are relatively new. I am 6'2" tall myself and I do no have the measurements as I type this but I think the height in my EggCamper is 80 inches or maybe 82". I am 74 inches... I know there is a lot of head room in my unit, ... but you will have to check the website for the EggCamper.

Mike,

The EggCamper is 6'7" high at the tallest point inside and the inside width at the bed I measured at 7'4".

My 6'1" husband could stand in both our '78 Burro and '86 UHaul.

Hi, Mike. My husband, Chris, is 6'3" so we've had the same challenge. One of the reasons that we are such Bigfoot fans is that our old 17' Bigfoot was plenty tall enough for him and our 20' 5th Wheel has lots of headroom the way it's designed. We've been to several FGRV meets now and have seen lots of cool trailers, but Chris is just too tall to stand inside comfortably for just about all of them. I just asked him if there are any others he can stand up in and he reports that he could in Escape trailers (which are beautiful) as long as there was no roof mounted AC. Happy hunting!

The new Escape 19ft trailer will have an inside height of 6'5". I'm only 6', but looking forward to the roomy feeling.

Hi - my husband is 6'4" - that's why we went to Bigfoot. We have the 17' Bigfoot trailer - it's plenty tall inside. Also, look for a vintage Fiber Stream. They also have 6'4" or more headroom. Happy Trails! Marilyn

At 6', I've had occasional 'issues' inside trailers.

To be honest - the actual HEADROOM issue never was all that important to me. I didn't really spent all THAT much time standing straight up in the trailer, so it never really bothered me that I was brushing against the roof, or standing with my head kicked over slightly.

On the other hand...

The length of the bed was a serious issue. If a bed is too short for me, it REAL uncomfortable REAL fast.

Scamp Trailers web site list the Interior height: 6' 3" for the 13', 16' & 19' Scamps. I believe the before the fire 13s were not 6' 3" but not sure what they are. Even 6' 3" will still be a head scratcher.

If I had it all to do over I'd have waited for scamp to rebuild from the fire becasue they corrected that inside height flaw when they rebuilt their molds. Instead I bought more trailer than I need with the Casita 17 just becasue they put that height bubble down the center of it. With the scamp I could have the same (or nearly the same) quality and could have saved 500 lbs or more. To me the 16 ft scamp is an ideal trailer for a single traveler pulling with a gas efficient 4cyl TV.
