Greetings!

I hope to learn a lot from the forums here. Hubby and I are looking to upgrade from tent camping. We are minimalist but need a certain amount of space due to his claustrophobia issues.

Appreciate the add and I'll try to formulate a new post with all my questions!

Raquel

All RVs have a second way out (emergency egress if you will).
Many owners do not even know where theirs is, but this post may get them to go look.
On my Scamp it is the back window. Slide it open and climb out of bed.
When shopping, look for one that you are both comfortable with.

I'm a bit of a minimalist with a touch of claustrophobia, and was pleasantly surprised to find a Scamp 13 (no bath) works for my 6'3" husband and me. I think having windows on all sides makes it feel more spacious and open than one would initially expect. And the back window that opens wide, as AC0GV mentioned, helps, too. Seeing one in person was key for our decision making. Best of luck in your search!

That may be true today, but there was a time that Trillium did not have a fire escape window. This is the window, (usually on the back) that fills the frame, top to bottom. It is beside a jalousie window that has the same dimentions, but with three panes.

Unless your husband sleeps in the fetal position, or you sleep on the small bunk, I can't see how that would work. I am 6'3" and had to sleep diagonal on the Scamp bed the one time I tried it. Not knocking it though, if it works for you, great!

While he doesn't go full fetal position, my husband is a fairly compact sleeper and often sleeps on his side. He can fit flat on his back, but it's a close fit. We have the bigger bed, so he probably does end up on a slant sometimes, which his generous wife allows. Sleeping style probably makes all the difference, as you alluded to.
