The thought here is that its better to spend the time to find the right bus so you don't have to do lots of modifications that take lots of time and money. You have to learn to recognize indications of a high roof height, unless you want to do a roof raise.
as more people do roof raises there is more and more information out there too on how to do it and ow to get better at it, for a person who is doing a complete build from a totally gutted bus, a roof raise is now feasible.. look at the guy recently that raised a roof in a day or two..
seems the flat front busses do best for roof raises, I havent seen anyone raise a dognose yet..(im sure the yare out there though)
EDIT: Wait i just now read a thread of a dognose roof raise.. ha!
having never had an RV, I also dont know what the ceiling heights of standard commercially built RV's are. 7 feet? ive been in some that seemed as short if not shorter than the ceiling in my Bus..
