Fulltiming & tall, anything available???

Am needing either a 5th wheel or TT to full time in for 1-2 years in the DFW area of Taxas. It will be stationary for the most part, but I will need tanks so a park model won't work. I am also 6'5 so I need something with some height so I wont get a concussion from hitting the ceiling or walls everyday. I know sometimes toy haulers have taller ceilings, but its really just wasted space for me. Any advise? I know I need one with insulation, 50amp service, dual pane windows, and 2 a/c or at least wired for 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look into DRV (Doubletree) fivers--my 6-2 son clears easily in the bedroom. But shower is a little tough.
The insulation in these is good and with 2 ACs, not a problem in DFW heat.

There are several TT's that have a ceiling hight of 7 feet. Winnebago One, Dutchmen Denali, Heartland North Trail are some of the 7 foot trailers. Of these the Denali can be insulated from the factory to be 4 season and can be ordered with dual pane windows. They also come with deep slides and be towed with a 3/4 ton gas powered truck.

I think you will find adequate headroom in most of the larger 5ers. As for TT's, in addition the the brands already mentioned, the Keystone Outbacks have pretty good headroom. As stated above, the shower is going to be the closest fit.

I highly recommend Excel travel trailer made by Peterson. They have been making RV 5th wheels since 1968. They started making the travel trailer in 2011. I bought a 2011 and it is the best RV I have ever owned. The company is by far the best service after the sale I have ever seen. They will work with u to built the trailer the way u want it. Look up Excel by Peterson on the Internet. I will never buy anything but Excel. Plenty of ceiling height, and good to minus 10 degrees. Give Ecel a call. U will not find a better company to deal with.
