Tall RV door?

I am in the process of adding an RV door to the back end of the buses for an exit for clients. I am going to duplicate the the stairs by cutting into the floor and welding them in. I have found several RV doors that I like, but they are 72 inches tall. My bus doors are 82 inches tall.
Is there such a thing as an 82 inches RV door, or will I need to make a header? I have already almost knocked myself out twice on my emergency exit, so I don't want any excuses for clients hitting their heads. I know I will have the stairs cut in, but a bigger door would be perfect.

I think my RV door is 76". The original door I was replacing was 78". Had a hard time finding the 76"er and couldn't find a 78"er that wasn't crazy expensive.
