One of the attractions of 5ers is the high ceilings. Are there TT out there also with high ceilings? I'm thinking >30ft in length. I get a little claustrophobic in ours sometimes.

I have only seen one on a campsite next to us. It was several years ago, so I have forgotten enough of the actual details he told me about to not want to say more than it had significantly taller walls than a normal TT not just inches. I remember he said it's being built was some sort of special circumstance and it was not something that I could go to the same company then and order. There may be some company that does a model like that. Or, you could go to a custom builder and have one made.

Wife and I recently looked at a Cherokee TT that had 7' ceilings. Definitely nicer than a lot of the compact models out there. Didn't buy it unfortunately, just not the right time for us with the economy.

I love the tall ceilings of my toy hauler for the same reason. Even if you don't have toys that ramp makes a heck of a deck.

That is one of the reasons we love our 5er the tall ceiling makes it seem so much roomier.

Our ceiling is 6’ 6” but with the cream color interior it feels a lot bigger. So far I haven’t felt claustrophobic-never even thought about it until this post.

Also, try looking at TTs with curved roofs. Friends of ours just bought a Jayco 19' TT, and I was surprised at the head room in it. Seems that with its curved roof the air conditioner is flush with the ceiling, instead of sticking down a few inches like on our Forest River.

Look for Cherokee Model 30U+. Exterior length is listed at 35' 10". Interior height is 84". This is a tall, fairly heavy trailer. Would recommend 3/4 ton PU preferably diesel for a TV. Really nice unit though. Still wishing we could have swung it.

Keystone makes several units with the high ceilings. We own a VR-1 with 7 foot ceilings. My son owns an outback, also with the high ceilings.
