Susan and I always say the RV lifestyle is for everyone. Yet there are some who find RVs don’t accommodate their needs. RVs and campers for tall people do exist, and we’re going to show you some great examples below of 2024 models (with video tours) in many of the RV categories.

The inspiration for this article came from a phone conversation. I called a customer service call center for a personal matter and had a chance to chat with the representative while we waited for the computer system to process something. The woman told me that she and her husband rented a fifth wheel and had the owner set up the RV since they owned an SUV. 

The couple loved the experience, but as they looked through the various other RV categories, every RV they looked at had an interior height that was too low for them. Her husband is 6’6’’ and she’s 6’3’’. I told her about the RV Blogger website, and we discussed her issue.

The average interior height of a travel trailer measures between 6.4-6.8 feet. Yet there are some that go taller. I gave her a few suggestions based on what I knew to be true and realized many of our other readers probably deal with the same issue. 

I also told her to reach out to our Facebook friends on RV Camping For Newbies, to see if others in the group have recommendations for RVs with high ceilings or how they’ve solved their height issues in their RV. Our Facebook page is growing very well. Thank you everyone for keeping the friendly and helpful spirit of the RV Community.

What is the Maximum Height of an RV

State laws have sizing requirements for RVs. Generally, they can’t exceed 45 feet in length and a width of 8.6 feet. The exterior maximum height of an RV is 13.6 feet. That means from the bottom of the tires to the top of the A/C unit, the coach must adhere to the RV height limits. Interstate overpasses have a minimum measurement of 14 feet, so it boils down to a clearance issue.  

Other highways and roads may have underpasses below this limit. The best way to avoid them is to use an RV trip planner like the one provided by RV Trip Wizard. The planner’s design allows you to find the best route that’s RV-friendly.

It will help you avoid city centers, low overpasses, gas stations that are easy to maneuver into, and campgrounds along the way. It also works well in those rural areas that city-centric map apps don’t give enough attention to.

You’ll find that full-profile fifth wheels, Class A motorhomes, and Class C RVs are the tallest RVs. We’ll discuss the fifth wheels below, but the Class A and C motorhomes that use superduty chassis need the height mostly for the automotive components under the motorcoach. 

Contrary to popular belief, luxury Class A motorhomes built on the Prevost H3-45 chassis aren’t the tallest motorhomes. Prevosts usually give owners a floor-to-ceiling measurement of 6.9 feet. Later on, you’ll see a Class A RV that has a better measurement for taller people.

8 Best RVs and Campers for Tall People: 2024 Models

Campers for tall people should include more than just extra head space. They should also include east and west space, along with a general feeling of openness. Not only are these RVs and campers tall, but they are also roomy, something tall people definitely appreciate.

1. Winnebago Voyage 2427RB

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Large French door fridge with a fantastic payload capacity

⛔ Shower is really tight but at least it’s tall

  • Length: 27′ 9″
  • UVW: 6,460 lbs
  • GVWR: 10,400 lbs
  • CCC: 3,940 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 660 lbs
  • Interior Height: 7′
  • Sleeps: 4

The Winnebago Voyage is one of those deceptively large RVs, with several optional configurations. Theater seating, a larger refrigerator, a king bed, and a chaise sofa are all on the table as floorplan options, depending on your own sense of style and comfort.

The interior height is 7′ throughout, so unless you’re in the NBA, you and your head will get along with the ceiling just fine. The skylight over the shower is 14″ x 22″, large enough to bring in plenty of natural light and eliminate that closed-in feeling tall people often get in RV bathrooms.

2. Grand Design Reflection 312BHTS

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Incredible living space with fireplace and TV entertainment center across from theater seating

⛔ You only have access to one slide control until it’s completely open, then you can access the others

  • Length: 37′ 4″
  • UVW: 9,432 lbs
  • GVWR: 11,295 lbs
  • CCC: 1,863 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,044 lbs
  • Interior Height: 7′
  • Sleeps: 8

Another camper with a 7′ interior height, the Grand Design Reflection is an impressive and luxurious travel trailer. The dark browns and off-greys mesh well, creating a warm and inviting feel. Those of us who are over 6′ tall recognize the advantages of east and west space as much as north and south.

The 312BHTS has both, with plenty to spare. The theater seating slide really opens up the living area, and the smaller, closet slide allows for a more spacious bedroom and a queen bed. The shower is large, with enough space between it and the toilet seat that you won’t have to have one foot on the floor and the other in the shower.

3. Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Huge, sectional sofa serves as the corner to a wide and spacious living and entertainment area

⛔ Venting is in the floor

  • Length: 43′ 11″
  • UVW: 2,940 lbs
  • GVWR: 18,000 lbs
  • CCC: 3,005 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,940 lbs
  • Interior Height: 8′ 7″
  • Sleeps: 4

The Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK is a prime example of campers for tall people who go really, really big. This massive 5th wheel is a tall person’s dream RV, with a tri-fold sofa sectional big enough to lay down and stretch out.

The king bed, as part of the slide, offers a comfortable rest for tall people while not taking up all the bedroom space.

The slim profile of the kitchen island keeps the kitchen fairly open, with plenty of walking room to either side. The bathroom is large, taking up nearly a fifth of the trailer on the front end, especially if you account for the spacious, walk-in closet on the other side of it.

4. Dutchmen Atlas 3382BH

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Private bunk room with its own dinette and half-bath

⛔ TV is in an awkward spot, across from the kitchen island and next to the fridge

  • Length: 37′ 6″
  • UVW: 8,382 lbs
  • GVWR: 11,000 lbs
  • CCC: 2,618 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,162 lbs
  • Interior Height: 7′ to 8′ barrel roof
  • Sleeps: 10

The Dutchmen Atlas 3382BH is another large travel trailer that easily meets the definition of campers for tall people.

It’s essentially two living spaces combined into one. So long as you have enough food and resources stocked in the bunkhouse, you’ll have your own dinette, half-bath, and sleeping quarters.

The living area and kitchen combination is spacious as well, with theater seating and a large dinette that’s big enough to keep you from knocking knees without a neighbor. The bathroom is not huge, but the shower certainly is, taking up half of the available bathroom space.

5. Opus OP2

Our Pros and Cons

✅ 90-second, inflatable tent with incredible durability and living space within

⛔ Heater isn’t standard, but optional

  • Length: 18′ 2″
  • UVW: 3,300 lbs
  • GVWR: 4,400 lbs
  • CCC: 1,100 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 355 lbs
  • Interior Height: 11′ 5″
  • Sleeps: 4

An interesting choice, in terms of campers for tall people, the Opus OP2 isn’t the first camper that comes to mind for the tallest of us. However, not everyone can slap down a ton of cash for the larger RVs and some simply don’t want to. The OP2 doesn’t disappoint, even if you’re quite tall.

Small and compact, the OP2 hauls easily and is aerodynamically advantageous. When you’re onsite, 90 seconds with the automatic pump creates a large and spacious interior that’s surprisingly well-insulated.

It’s also the perfect camper for boondocking and there’s no better head space than open sky with no one else around for miles.

6. Entegra Odyssey 29V

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Most of the RV is usable with the slide-in, thanks to the spacious middle walkway

⛔ No separation between the shower and the front of the RV

  • Chassis: Ford E450
  • Engine: 7.3L V8
  • Length: 32.5′
  • Exterior Height: 11.67′
  • Interior Height: 7′
  • Fuel Capacity: 55 gallons

The Entegra Odyssey 29V is one of the best campers for tall people in the Class C category. In fact, it’s an upgrade over the SE, with the specific goal of creating more space.

There’s no island in the kitchen and the counters are long and narrow, maximizing walking space and maneuverability in the living spaces.

The queen bed is large enough while leaving plenty of flanking space and more at the foot of the bed. While the bathroom is a split, which some RVers prefer to avoid, it makes sense in terms of space for taller people. It allows for a much larger shower and plenty of legroom in the bathroom.

7. Jayco Precept 36C

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Massive living space with a lot of seating options throughout

⛔ Bathroom is a tight fit

  • Chassis: Ford F53
  • Engine: 7.3L V8
  • Length: 38.8′
  • Exterior Height: 12.8′
  • Interior Height: 7′
  • Fuel Capacity: 80 gallons

RV manufacturers would have to actively try to make a Class A motorhome that doesn’t accommodate tall people. Class As are the obvious choice for those looking for maximum space, and the Jayco Precept 36C is an excellent choice.

Every room throughout the motorhome emphasizes space and size, with a 7′ interior height and plenty of space east and west, every room in this RV is huge.

The king bed is more than accommodating, with lots of space at the foot and a huge bathroom in the rear. A second, large bathroom flanks a massive entertainment area and kitchen as well.

8. Sandpiper 403RD

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The entire back room is a dedicated entertainment living area with three sofas, a ceiling fan, and a TV

⛔ Floor vents

  • Length: 39′
  • UVW: 11,009 lbs
  • GVWR: 13,268 lbs
  • CCC: 2,259 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,268 lbs
  • Interior Height: 8′ 3″
  • Sleeps: 6

If you’re looking at campers for tall people, why not go with a camper that’s basically a massive house on wheels? The Forest River Sandpiper eschews the common form and shape of an RV in favor of something that resembles a residential home on wheels. The entire thing is massive, with over 8 feet of interior height.

It’s large enough that an entire room is dedicated to nothing but entertainment and seating, with three couches, two of which are sofa beds. The bathroom is huge as well, and the dual entryways lead into a large and spacious kitchen, even with the island and plenty of counter space.

This camper is all about size and is an amazing choice for tall people.

How to Choose the Perfect RV or Camper for Tall People

Like I said at the beginning, we believe RVing is for everyone. There are two ways to find the right RV for you and your family. First, go to RV Blogger and learn all you can. Sign on to our YouTube channel to receive notifications when we upload new videos. Join our Facebook page and learn from new and veteran RVers to gain multiple perspectives.

Susan and I also encourage you to gain first-hand knowledge by renting some RVs through Outdoorsy. When you rent through this peer-to-peer RV company, you’re using coaches owned by real people, not corporate fleets. Owners meet up with you for the drop-off and walk you through the operation of the RV.

Many of the motorhome and travel trailer owners offer additional features like setting up the RV for you if you don’t have the ability to tow the coach. For a small upgrade, they may have outdoor furniture, cookware, linens, and other additional services to make the experience better.

After trying a few different floorplans, brands, and RV categories, you might find an average interior height travel trailer might do nicely.

Everyone has their own unique wants and needs for an RV. Veterans who have years of experience will rent RVs if they’re thinking of making a major change in categories. Making a decision on a big investment like an RV shouldn’t be made based on a 20-minute walk-through.

Take a few weekends by trying out some to get a real feel for that RV you’re thinking of purchasing. The RV experience should be an enjoyable experience, not filled with remorse.

Are 5th Wheels Taller Than Travel Trailers?

In general, 5th wheels are taller than travel trailers thanks to a higher roofline by necessity. The way they tow, and the more generous weight and length considerations, allow manufacturers to be a little more liberal with their height allowances.

However, the extra height allows for features like ceiling fans. While a ceiling fan obviously doesn’t take up the entire ceiling, it can reduce the advantage of having a taller ceiling, at least in terms of how the room feels to a tall person.

Final Thoughts About Best 2024 RVs and Campers for Tall People

Every one of the RVs on this list is 7′ or taller. Yes, that includes the Opus, which is the tallest on the list, at least when it’s expanded. However, ceiling height isn’t the only thing tall people crave.

We need space to the left and right as well, with longer arms, legs, and elbows that are magnetically attracted to every hard surface.

The campers for tall people on this list also have plenty of space all around, which gives taller people an easier sense of comfort and space. After all, height means very little if you have to walk sideways throughout your RV.

  1. I am 6′ 5″ and went with a tung drag Stryker toy haler. Very tall celling height, in the center of the camper I can just touch the ceiling. Downsides would be extra wind drag, smaller slide out, and it is heavier. Havier can be a plus as well because the entire thing is much sturdier.

  2. OK, Great headroom for moving about the units. How about when it’s closed up for driving? That’s where I have problems,6’5″! Have not found a class A, B, or C where I can get the seat back far enough to drive it any distance. Would love to have one but the slide always restricts the seat movement before I can get comfortable.
    Like the coverage on the trailers tho!
