May sound crazy, but the beds in our Pop Up were bigger than our TT. My son grew from 5-2 when we bought our bunkhouse to 6-2. He now sleeps on the u-shaped dinnette as it has more room. We end up with the daughter in the bunkhouse, and 3 empty bunks.

We’re trying to get back in the travel trailer game, and it’s just not working out. My wife and I need a queen with 80” length, or a clear walkway at the end of the bed. I’m 6’-5” and need the length or room.
My son is a big boy at 6’-4”, and my daughter is 6’-0”. No bunks seem to fit, and although laying crosswise on a 74” bunk may help, they all seem to have the ceiling or bed above right at your face making you feel like you’re in a coffin with no air.
Then, every trailer with a big dinette has only a useless jackknife sofa.
Does any RV manufacturer think that maybe by some chance four adults would like to camp together? Even if my kids bail in a few years, we still have friends that would like to go. Is everyone supposed to buy an F-550 and a toyhauler just to camp? Someone ou't there has got to have found a way without adding a tent. Any wizards out there? I’d appreciate the input.


you think you have trouble. Some friends that have camped with us have: Dad 6'6", Son 1 6'11" mom 6'4", several daughters over 6'5", 5th grade boy is pushing 5' 6" even cars are a problem. They use a tent, and don't come in the trailer unless they have to.

A 5th wheel is likely the only option. many have 8' or so ceilings.

I have nothing to offer as far as trailer advice goes- I'm "vertically challenged" the opposite way lol. But once you do find your trailer I'm looking forward to hearing how your F150 diesel pulls it.

Look at toy haulers. A lot have beds that run the full width of the garage that come down from the ceiling (often two of them bunk bed style).

If the master has some room at the foot, you can easily build an extension and put in a household mattress to get length.

Thank you for all the replies. We looked at a K-Z Connect today, after weeks of deliberation over several brands and models. It’s 24 feet at just over 5,200 pounds. The nice thing is the bunks are 50” x 75” with almost 90” diagonally. I laid down in them and they are more than adequate. If my frame fits, my son will. He had to work, so he didn’t see it in person. We pulled the trigger, and have to wait two weeks to pick it up. Hoping they can get K-Z to allow the rear 71” rack (K-Z designed accessory) on the bumper for my grill and griddle. This model is the less-loaded SE series, which does not have the option for the rear rack, but I’m sure the frame is the same as the higher trim model. Also, looking for windows for the bunks that open. These on the trailer are solid. Just plain dumb in my book. Clip on fans may be needed to provide adequate ventilation into the “vaults”.
Thanks again for all the great replies!
