Head Room Question

I'm 6'2" and I need help finding out about the head room in various FG campers. I see that Scamp lists 6'3" interior height and Casita has a listing of 6'1.5" in their 17' models and 5'10" in the 16' models. Are their any other egg campers with head room for someone 6'2"?

My husband is 6'2" and could not stand up straight in our former 16' Scamp or our current Deluxe 19' Scamp. He can stand up in the 19' Scamp only in the area where the bathroom door and the steps to the loft are. That's where the Scamp ceiling rises up for the loft.

Remember there is often an air conditioner which robs some of the headroom. And people are usually wearing shoes or boots which makes them up to an inch taller.

Still and all, most of the time he is not standing in the Scamp so it turns out not to be a really big deal. And I'm only 5'4" so it works fine for me!

Tom, There are a few as you can see, and also Parkliner is 6'4". Good Luck on your quest.

I'm 6" and have to reach up to touch the ceiling in the EggCamper. And A/C unit is under dinette so nothing hanging down to hit you. The bed could fit a queen mattress if not for the corner of the kitchen counter.

The front bathroom is where the front wall curves so easier to sit on the toilet when washing then stoop over. Also have to duck going out the door - both my wife (5'6") and I have bumped that before.

I have heard about Casita and Scamp being a little shorter inside, but have not been in one personally. Also everyone who has been in the EggCamper comment on how wide it is inside.

Head Room

I am 6 ft. 1" . I have never hit my head on the ceiling of our Scamp.
I've hit it on the rooftop AC ,the outside door frame , the bathroom door opening , the handle on the roof vent, and the cabinet above the dinette. There is plenty of opportunities for banging your head , Learn to DUCK

My 6'1" hubby could stand in our '79 Burro and can stand in our '86 Uhaul VT, except where the AC is too low. Most times, he is not inside unless sleeping though. Not been a problem.

Thanks for all the input on head room. I thought that egg camper was a generic term and now I know that it is an actual brand with what is probably the most interior room for a tall person. I guess that if you spend most of your day outside the camper and only use it to sleep in then head room isn't an issue. My sweetie and I are getting closer to being able to hit the road so I'll probably have more questions before we purchase a camper.

Tom, after tons of reading.. what I've gleaned is there are two things that fall into the "most important" area. A comfortable bed that 'fits' the sleeper and a comfortable chair for outside. If you can get good sleep at night and be comfortable during the day, the 3 or 4 feet of inside walking around room becomes far less important. Even a tight shower, that gets the job done, seems to be less of a factor than a long enough bed for tall people.

Donna, I see a lot of wisdom in your comment about a comfortable bed for a good nights sleep and a comfortable camp chair for sitting around the campfire. I think I'll do a search for bed comfort and size information. I hate to ask questions that have already been answered previously.
