Hello everyone!

First time poster here & hoping someone can help me out. We’ve been looking at a new travel trailer for some time, and finally decided that the Surveyor Legend 240BHLE was the right one. Now it seems inventory is virtually non-existent so we’re trying to find something similar.

Can anyone recommend a 23-28 foot TT with bunks, a residential sized Murphy bed (80” or better if that exists), and a relatively tall ceiling? I’m 6’7 so I want to be able to stand up inside it without mashing my head into the ceiling, and avoid having my feet hang off the end of the bed as much as possible. I’d be willing to go with a regular bed if it were 80” long & didn’t have a wall flush against the end, but I do really like the idea of having a couch during the day in case I want to sit down inside for some reason. The Surveyor checked all these boxes but I don’t want to wait until the end of summer to take delivery.

Thanks for any suggestions you might have!

Considering this model myself

At 6'-7" you could sleep on dinette. Not sure of the ceiling height but I'm sure it over your height
