Thanks again Alf.

Ray, thanks for the info. That's exactly why I want to see a unit in person. I'd get cabin fever quickly if I couldn't stand up straight in the trailer. I took a brief tour of an egg camper before and could stand, but there was not much leeway at all. I would not want less head room than that.

It sounds like you need the 5.0 TA.

I called Yogi and left a message so he can stop by and see the camper. If anybody else asks to see the 5.0TA, Hobe Sound, Fl is about 26 miles North of West Palm Beach Florida on the ocean. It's covered up until Oct. (To HOT to camp) but they can still go inside.
Thanks, Mark

Although I'm shorter than you (5'10"), I hear ya on that. I was concerned about hitting the a/c in the 21, but it was fine. However, in the 5.0TA I didn't have any worries at all. I was also able to sit in bed without banging my head; more of my height is in my legs, so not sure how that would work for you.

Sounds like you'll be able to tour one in your neck of the woods - good for that. I also did not feel confined in the 5.0TA either.

Thanks for the info. Being able to sit up in the bed is important too. Hopefully it will work for me too. And the bathroom is a concern too. I've heard it's only 72" to 75" tall.

I can't answer on the height in the bathroom, but I did not feel too tall in there. Granted, you're taller than me, so don't go 100% on what I'm saying. I can tell ya that there's more room in there to shower than there was in the enclosed shower stall in the 32' Jayco motorhome I rented for a week. So, I know *I* won't have any problems taking a shower in there. But others have stated it's too small for them.

(And cover up the toilet with a trash bag when you take a shower, as someone mentioned in another thread - great tip!)

I'm giving serious consideration to leaving the sink out, installing some holders from RV Widgets and then having ETI install this faucet (to go along with my Ecocamel shower head):
