Yeah, you have to take your best guess and try to keep it safe. I don't personally think it's good to change the structural integrity of the shell, although I still want some spray insulation. If I was going to raise the roof I would also do it from below the windows to get those suckers higher. If you're going to change your windows to something with more of an RV look later, you're going to take a lot of weight off the top section if you eventually remove the old windows. I think there's about 5 tons of them in most buses.

Ok, 5 tons might have been an exaggeration.
