My first TT was a '09 Jayco and the worst mistake I've made was trading it in for another brand. I'm retired and plan on using for snowbirding and seeing this great country. i.e. semi-full timing.
The ceiling height in my 2014 287BHBE is 81" throughout. If you figure about a 2" rise for the shower base,you're going to get shampoo on the ceiling!.

Another word of caution ... If whatever model you decide on has a queen bed, make sure it has a full 60" x 80" mattress instead of the short queen 60" x 74", else you will be trying to sleep with your feet hanging out!

Good Camping ....... Swampy

look at the front living room models, they have bathrooms in the middle of the unit and have ample headroom. Like the Eagle 399 FLQS

I am 6'2", so I have a lot of scars on my head..

Ok, how about having an SPACER made that will fit between the skylight and the TT roof. Something like a length 2x2" or 3x3" square aluminum tubing, you can make it into the size of the skylight (one continuous length). It would be a strong base for the skylight and give you a few extra inches.. Use a good sealant and you should have no issues. The air flow on top of the TT at that point (rear) is not as bad as on the front of the TT.

I have a 2016 26.5 RLS. Put my jacket on and brought my tape measure. Bathroom floor to ceiling is 6' 7". Shower is 6' 6" and inside the little moon roof it is about 6' 10" in the shower.

My husband is also 6'7" which has presented a lot of problems in trying to enter the RV world. We saw the living room forward North Pointe and Pinnacle at the Tampa RV show last month. He was fine throughout the entire unit including the shower. Yipee! We'll be buying a unit this summer and hitting the road.

The ceiling height on my TT is 7 feet througout. I lose a few inches in the shower floor but gain it right back with the ceiling sky light.

So, you can get head room without going with a 5r.

I'm 6'4" and not a small fella...
That was one of the main considerations why we went with the Eagle 339FLQS.
Front living is roomy with plenty of head room for me, and no stooping.
Likewise with the bathroom. Plenty of room around the thrown and 3' of room over my head and a roomy shower...
No stooping ever! No crowding ever!
