    Find yourself a truck dealer place and ask to tryout their bunks, couldnt hurt could it. Just explain to them why. Wouldnt see why they wouldnt.

    from freightliner's website: http://www.freightlinertrucks.com/trucks/find-by-model/Cascadia/comfort.aspx

    Fridge at buckle level, not below your knees
    Shelves that stay put and don’t rattle
    Lots of tie-downs and pockets
    Plush mattress, 40 inches wide by 80 inches long
    “Tall” mid-roof design is available in 48 inch, 60 inch, and 72 inch sleeper sizes

    now go read for yourself, then do a search for the prostar, google can be your friend..

    Yeah, I'm 6'3" and the prostar is plenty long. I think it's 80" long plus there is actually a few inches on either end past the mattress. I can have my shower bag at the foot of my bed and still sleep.

    I'm 6'3" also, and I haven't had an issue in any truck yet (I haven't been in an International)

    It's seems to be a standard that truck mattresses are Twin Extra-Long...which, as mentioned already, gives you 80" from head to toe.

    Side-note, wait for back-to-school sales, and suddenly you'll see all of the TwinXL sheet sets on sale for the college-bound freshmen (College dorms are almost universally TwinXL mattresses, too). So grab a couple of sets in the late summer, and you're set!

    I'm taller than you and I have plenty of room without my head or feet touching the wall in my Cascadia. You won't have a problem. You can also stand up right at the drivers seat without worrying about hitting your head in one as well.

    because sometimes there is no one here that will HELP YOU by doing some of the "googling" for you. it's called being lazy when no one takes the time to even think about going to google for some answers themselves....

    and further, not everyone is going to have the measurements you had asked for, if only you could have googled yourself..

    good luck, and get to learn google, it CAN BE your friend as well.
