What Bs are you considering? What Bs are available in your area? And your “area” is unknown...per your profile. Hide and seek?

Probably none. Class Bs are notoriously expensive for very little room. You would be better off with a used class C. At least you could get a real queen or king bed.

You're probably going to need to be into something like these makes/models, but probably not at your price point.
Winnebago Flex Bed

I would think maybe an older smaller class C on an older Sprinter chassis (think early View/Navion) might be the closest thing to a class B in size, with a full sized bed. There are probably some older class B vans on Sprinters that might have longer beds. Class B vans are not the best fit for taller people, as they will tell you.

You might try one of the Class B Forums and pose your question there?

I agree that the Winnebago Flex Bed may be the only B that fits your criteria. It was one of the factors that steered us to Winnebago when we shopped for a class B.

A very opinionated statement without anything to support it.

One thing to keep in mind is the pillow takes up unnecessary room at the head of the bed. My DH is 6'2" and he fits in our bed which is a sideways bed in the back of our Roadtrek. I made a custom pillow that is shaped like a tootsie roll and he is happy as a lark.

I would go look at some that interest you in price and style. Lay on the beds and make your choice.

Years ago I looked at B's and couldn't find any that allowed me to stand up straight and I'm only 6'2".

Ours is 6'3" except where the A/C unit is which lowers to 6'1". Luckily we keep our Flex Bed as a king and the A/C is located over where the twin->king filler piece goes, so we never walk there.
