LOL - incredibly accurate. My bus is roughly the same height!!

I'm 5'10" and can sit upright on the ground under my bus and not have to slouch; but I'm constantly knocking my head against mechanical components, the frame, and the occassional random screw or bolt sticking out of somewhere I didn't see....

I got stuck under a trailer house fixing pipes at 20 below zero. Had to remove my winter monkey suit to get free!
Fun Times!
