Ceiling height and Bus recommendations? HALP

Hello!

I posted this questionnin the newbie section, but thought it would be better suited here.

First, it's SO nice to feel less insane. Everyone thinks I'm nuts when I tell them I'm looking at busses to convert into a tiny home.

Second, I need a bit of help!
I'm ok with a 6' ceiling, but the boyfriend is 6'3". Which busses tend to come with a higher ceiling? I would really love to not need to raise the roof at all, as I'm looking at adding a roof deck, and have very tiny finances.

Hello and thank you in advance!

The Thomas bus I have has a 6'6" ceiling height. For those in particular, look at the hump in the front of the roof:



If it humps upward, its tall inside, if down, its 6'. DO NOT get a 6' inner height bus if he is 6'3, it will be absolutely miserable!

I make tall women walk with their knees bent so the height difference isn't so noticeable.

Hahaha! Maybe I should do the same to him. XD

Also funny to note that I'm searching for a higher hump.
