Rookie from Central Florida

I have been peeping in on you guys and gals for a bit. Whooo I like what I see. lol

I have dreamed about living on some wheels, from tiny homes, RV, motorhome, etc...

This school bus conversion has my interest. But I have a hurdle....

I stand 6'4" .......I researched and found out a few buses that will fit me comfortable.

second option "Raise the roof"

So, i'm glad to be here and I'm off to research more......

Most 2000+ Internationals have standard a high headroom roof (78" clearance). Even with a planned 2.5" flooring scheme, I'm 6' and I'll still have a couple of inches of clearance to the new ceiling. The other manufactures have it optional (BB and Thomas guys chime in if I'm incorrect)

Are we really going to see this every time someone calls their bus something other than what you think is proper? If you have spent any time at all reading this site you know what he's talking about.
Perhaps we should go into grammer, spelling and punctuation.

Without starting a war, perhaps YOU, somewhereinusa, should learn how to spell in your own right.
