Ok...I will say it. You will ruin the trailer. It will be an ugly, leaking patch work on the outside and not much better on the inside.

I have never seen DIY custom work that looked good on a trailer. I have seen holes cut into them to put on a window A/C unit. That never looks good.

They do not make small trailers for someone that is 6'4". You really need to live in a park model or 5th wheel.

Can you turn the bed sideways in the space you have?

I don't live in it, I camp in it.
I'm not 6'4", I'm 6'2".
I would like a longer bed, and I'm trying to figure out a good way to do that.

justafordguy asks an interesting question, 'Can I turn the bed sideways in the space I have?' I'm a lot more competent with interior modifications that exterior, so maybe I need to look into that option.

And yes, now that I've bought a larger tow vehicle, I suppose I could eventually opt for a larger travel trailer, but not today, I'm afraid. I guess I was hoping that someone had tried something like this, or seen something like this done, but it appears not, so maybe it's just a bad idea.

Structural Changes

I would say changing the interior would be ur best bet buddy like he said about spinning the bed side ways if you can I feel like a modification like that would turn into a frustrating mess my buddy has 31ft jayco jayflight bunk house they are larger people and we ripped the wall down and put up an accordion door because the large mattress was up against the wall worked great was able to mount it back further so when closed there more then enough room maybe that's something you could do if ur able to

If you mod the outside you better just put a ring on it cuz you'll be married to that trailer for a long time.

I think you'd be far better off selling it and buying a trailer that will accommodate an 80" mattress. I believe you'd have a tough time selling a modified trailer.
