Floorplans for tall sleepers?

Moderator's note: The next two posts were moved from the Family Friendly Floorplans topic, because they address a different issue.

my husband is quite tall, 6'4", I have become obsessed with fiberglass trailers, and would like to get one to restore. The first one I found was a burro, and since that is just 6' wide, would be too cramped to sleep in for him. Which years and floor plans might be more comfortable for a tall guy?

Kirsten, I'm 6' 4" and wanted an egg for years, but couldn't bring myself to buy one I couldn't stand up straight in. When I found out that the EggCamper has 6' 7" of headroom I bought one sight unseen. I know some people say it doesn't bother them to have to hunch over inside their campers, but I don't care for it. Also, the EggCamper is 88" wide so the bed is plenty long. The designer and owner of the EggCamper company is also 6' 4" and said he wanted to design a camper for tall people. However, it's a fairly new camper so finding a used one would be difficult, especially one that needs to be restored. They used to sell a basic model as a "kit" that you would customize yourself, but I don't think that's available anymore.
