We have toured thousands of RVs and campers, and we found the best used (or late model) RVs and campers for tall people. These RVs and campers have ample headroom, bed length, and shower height for tall people to be comfortable in their rig.

If you’re interested in fifth wheels, and ceiling height is an issue, you need to know the difference between mid-profile fifth wheels and the full-profile versions.

Mid-profiles are also known as half-ton 5th wheels. The mid-profiles are generally shorter in length, have less headroom, and have travel trailer-like features instead of residential-level amenities. A significant…
