You will probably just have to go to various dealers and walk thru yourself. At 6'-5" myself I found that even 5ers in the 35'-40' range and various price ranges varied quite a bit in head room checking out many of them at RV shows. Some to low for me to stand straight in the front. Shorter ones probably even more so.

Even pretty small units typically have plenty of head room in the main Livingroom. We had a 28ft unit that I had to reach to touch the ceiling (I'm 6'2").

It's the bedroom where the question comes in. If you plan to spend time standing in the bedroom, look at the tall front units but there are still limits. The front overhang has to be high enough to clear the pickup bed but the top has to be under 13'6" for bridge clearance.

On the other hand, we rarely hang out standing in the bedroom so the mid-height units serve us just fine.

Thanks, I should be used to hitting my head in RVS and knees in cars. We had a long 5th wheel and plenty of room! Our problem is the driveway won’t support a long 5th wheel. Looking at 28-29 ft 5th wheels. What is the best quality 5er?
