Default RVs for Tall People

I'm in the process of putting together a database of Class B and Class C RVs that can accommodate someone 6' 2" tall who doesn't curl up to sleep. Here's what I've found so far. I hope to find more. Mercedes will soon be offering a Sprinter with a roof that's 4-6 inches taller than the high-top, so this list will change.

These are RVs with:
- Inside Height = 75" or more
- Bed Length = 75" or more
- Bed Width = 54" or more
- Both refrigerator and microwave raised (These motorhomes have raised refrigerators and microwaves that are not under the countertop on the floor. A tall person would have to get on their hands and knees to use undercounter appliances.)

They're sorted by class, then the ones with the tallest inside height and longest beds are listed first. If the AC is ducted or in the rear of the coach, the main height is used. If the location of the AC is above the galley or where it may get in the way, it's noted.


Notes on the table:
Class B = Van Conversion
Class C = Cab/Frame Conversion (Some folks may classify some of these as Class B+)


*The inside height listed is with the pop-up top fully expanded, with no bed in the loft. It's built on a standard roof Sprinter and is 70" high inside with the pop-top down. The height of the door may be a problem, since it's only the height of the standard roof Sprinter.

**These are specified by the customer.

***The location of the AC may interfere with inside height.

****The size of the Unity bed is with the insert, converting its twin beds to one larger bed. It also can be used sleeping sideways, making the bed 88" x 76".

Your Advanced RV standard for appliances would both be raised. Microwave, refrigerator are pretty much a set item. I don't think an Advanced RV has been built yet where these two items have been altered. They have a basic plan but only the back bed area and the front wardrobe area are up for grabs in customer modifications. With the Ocean One extended length you can get a pretty long bed if you desire. I think all beds are 75" or more. The Advanced RV CEO and owner, Mike Neundorfer, is about 6'-3". He is cognizant of these issues. My bed will be like no bed you have ever seen in a Class B.

You are missing the Great West Van Legend Sprinter. The EX model can come with an extended length bed. The microwave and refrigerator are high. At least my 2011 was.

Travato 59G meets your criteria except for bed width. It has the length - 77", but only 46" width, raised microwave and refrigerator, and has 6'3" interior height. Excellent RV for a tall guy, but with a skinny wife.

Lexor and Zion meet your interior height requirements, but not the raised appliances. Nor will Travato 59K.

Davydd,

"My bed will be like no bed you have ever seen in a Class B".

Are you putting mirrors on the ceiling?

Thanks for the feedback, all! According to the info I have, the Great West Legend bed is 74" long, one inch shy of the minimum that I set. The Legend EX bed that I missed apparently is 84" long. I'll add that later. I forgot to mention that all of them had to be under 25 feet. Anything longer than that would be difficult to park in a standard parking lot.

S.G.
P.S. Davydd, are you gonna have a disco ball? Strobe lights? Fog machine? Inquiring minds wanna know!

I am 6'3" and did not want an extended length van. So, on my request, Great West Vans modified the kitchen cabinet slightly in our new factory-ordered Legend SE. It added 4" to the passenger side of the bed. Made all the difference in the world. The bed is vastly more comfortable than that in our old '05 Airstream Interstate.

I also need to add info about the following RVs:

-Fleetwood Jamboree
-Fleetwood Tioga Ranger
-Forest River Forester series
-Forest River Sunseeker series

These are all under 25' Class C RVs.

I'm curious about how they made the modification to only one side of the fold out couch.

My 6'7" brother toured our 1999 American Cruiser RE2000 today...it was not a pretty sight! I am 5'4" and have no problems, though!
