FR Non-Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers with 80 inch Queen/King Bed?

Hi all, we are looking at a new FR Non-Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer this year but I'm really looking for one with an 80 inch Queen/King Bed? I'm 6'2", and I'm tired of hanging off the end! Unfortunately FR doesn't specifically say bed sizes in their specs. Anybody run this search before?

I'm 6'4" and fit in our bed just fine.


We have a Coachmen 310BHDS but I imagine just about any Coachmen that offers a queen size bed will fit you.

As far as I know, all Rockwood Ultralights and Signatures have 80in queens.
I'm 6' 3" and mine has the 80in queen.

Our Surveyor has an 80 inch queen. Check here and click the floor plan and it shows the size of the bed.

Looking more closely not all show the length

"Full queen" is the longer bed vs "queen " which is a short queen I've only seen used in RVs. I hope this helps interpret the specs which are somewhat ambiguous.

Our Coachmen 192 RBS has a full queen and easy access from both sides, which makes it much easier to changes sheets.

Mack-The-Killer-Cockapoo approves.

Our Freedom Express 248RBS had a full queen ... I noticed if the literature and/or floorplan doesn't say the dimensions it's usually a "short" queen.

Full Queen

Our 2715 Flagstaff V-Lite has a full queen that can be walked around. This is also a slide and for us, it is a design that gives us as much space as we have found at this length-31' total. I prefer this set-up as it gives us both a night stand. I also really like the way it tows. Disadvantage is it is nose heavy, and hard to put 2 batteries on.

Check out the Palomini

The Palomini's all have 80 inch queen beds. We have the 142ck, although no longer in production. Being 6'3" the bed size was the first criteria that had to be met. I pull with a Honda Odyssey, weight of the TT was a major consideration. The 142 ck has a tongue weight less than 200 Lbs & dry weight of 2401.



Hope this helps.

At 6'1 I was very happy to find we have a full sized queen bed in our Rockwood Ultra V 2715VS. It is in our forward slide so we have lots of room for the bed and cabinets.

When I bought my trailer it was advertised with a residential (80") queen size bed. Well, no. It was 3" short in length and 2" in width. Doesn't sound like much but it does make a difference. Besides that it was a very uncomfortable bed. So I bought a Nectar memory foam bed that is the right size. I did have to rebuild the platform to accommodate the mattress. But it was well worth the effort. I'm 6'4" those few inches made a lot of difference.
