Well, no one has ever asked that before so I went out and just measured it! At the bed edge closest to the nose of the trailer it is 34" from the top of the mattress to the ceiling and at the edge furthest from the nose it is 38.5.
Yes, from the pictures of the Escape
I do believe the Escape has a little less headroom there..but I don't know what the measurement is.
I think the other question from your wife was 'does it feel closed in up in the loft bed area'. Personally, I don't feel 'closed' in up in the bed area...I think it's quite comfy and I like that it is somewhat separate from the rest of the trailer. There are two windows
and a roof/escape vent so there is plenty of light
- except at night of course :-) There is a reading light
in the loft and a dome light mounted on the wall in the stairway.
Hope that answers the questions....

Maybe an Escape 5.0 owner will chime in and provide the comparable measurements.....
