At a touch over 6' 4" I held off buying a fiberglass
trailer until I found out about the EggCamper
. It has a true 6' 7" of headroom and no overhead AC to bump into. The bed space is 54" wide and about 86" long - (the EggCamper
is 8" wider than the Casita
or Scamp). We bought one in 2011 and I was very happy with it.
The problem was, my wife is mildly claustrophobic and, although the EggCamper
is the roomiest of the 17' trailers, she was still climbing the walls after a week or so, (contributed to by its limited storage). We sold
the EggCamper last year and bought a 21' Escape
in May of this year. We spent nearly six weeks in the Escape
while returning to Florida from British Columbia, and my wife was very happy with the Escape
; after the six weeks she was still comfortable in the Escape - largely because it had enough storage space for everything and it has an open floor plan. I did find it didn't really have the advertised 6' 5" of headroom, I couldn't stand up straight anywhere in the trailer. While some people will poo poo the need to stand up straight inside a trailer, I do find it a bit uncomfortable to always have to stoop over and dodge the overhead AC. The bed is about like the one in the EggCamper, 54" wide, and plenty long. All in all, my slight inconvenience at having to stoop over is more than made up for with the additional storage space, comfortable table for four, permanent bed, roomy shower, additional counter space and, most importantly, my wife's happiness.
