Ceiling height & opinions

Can a 6'7" man stand up in the BATHroom of the 26.5 HT RLS 5er? Closest model is over 2 hours away. Not worried about bedroom. And if anyone has one what are your opinions and experiences. 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.

Welcome!

We don't own an HT, but looked at several of them before settling on our current rig, and I think you might find the bathroom a little tight, especially since I'm "only" 5'10" and I thought it felt a little low.

Even if you did have headroom.. You'll never be able to stand straight in the shower.

I'm 6' 2" and I didn't test the shower but I know my head was scraping the ceiling in the bedroom on an HT. Jayco spec on the bedroom height is 74 3/4". The Eagle is 77 3/4" and the Northpoint is 82 1/2".

Nutz! Thanks guys. I was hoping since there are 2 step ups (in pictures) between the bath and the bed that the bath ceiling may be rather high. Only FW I have found that had that characteristic was...another brand, and I didn't like the layout but it had the tallest bath ceiling of any RV I've been in.

I don't know what your requirements are, but I'm 6'4" and I barely fit in most front end bed/bathrooms.
I think you need to look at a front living room Eagle with the bed/bath in the back.

I would agree with this statement or look to a North Point. The higher end 5'ers increase in head room all the way to the front along with weight and cost as well, so one might be limited.

I am 6'3" and can stand all the way into the front of my BR at the closet doors. The shower has a skylight which enhances the height by about 4" more in my bath room.

That's why I stay with higher end 5ver's now.
I've had a low end TT and a low end 5th before. The comfort is worth the extra $$ for more height.

I just went and measured from the floor to the bottom of the skylight in my shower and it is approximately 78 1/2 inches. So, to answer your question, a 6'7" guy might not be able to stand up straight, but might still be able to take a shower by bending a bit. I love all those people who tell you a guy can't but offer no first hand evidence other than the trailer isn't a high-end one.

I stand corrected...
The one step makes a huge difference
