how tall are you?

Several skoolie owners and I have pointed out the fact that lots of skoolie owners tend to be short. There have to be tall skoolie owners out there.....but i'm not one of them.

I"m about 5' 6" tall.

six foot four, and my head hits the roof in the center of mine...a roof raising is in the plans *S* really not much of my bus will remain the same if all the plans go right.

Dang...Lapeer, my wife is 2" taller than you. She's 5'8", I'm 6'1" tall (effectively, add a couple inches, because we both usually wear boots).

Well...........I'm 5'19" - which is why my 1st question to a seller is always:
What's the headroom?
I can just stand in my bus - 66 GMC/Wayne Hi-headroom - aka Stego. Now with a search for a new bus ongoing, I am wondering why new(er) buses all seem to have less headroom?

Anyway, it explains my obsession with roof raising topics...........

there goes my theory on short people being skoolie owners. My bus was about 72" in the center, before the insulation and the flooring.

I am a 6 foot tall girl so your theory is all messed up! my bus had perfect headroom.... although I would occasionally hit my head on the disco ball.
