Thomas Vista question

Thinking about purchasing a Vista. Does anyone know how tall the ceiling is in a handi-capable Vista, with a flat floor? I like the vista but Iím taller so I want to make sure I can fit.

Also, this site is great! Iíve learned so much. Thanks everyone.

My 98 Vista was about 6'6" after removing the original plywood and rubber flooring. After installing 1" of foam insulation, 1/2" subfloor and 1/4" ceiling, I still had 6'4".

Hint: Read the parts about engine noise

I have a 92 Vista, the handi-capable ones are 77in if I'm remembering right. My Vista was a special built chassis as an activity bus so its actually 3in taller at 80in but, mine did not have any wood under the floor just rubber glued to the floor pan, so you possibly can squeak out another 1/2 to 3/4in on height from floor pan to ceiling. What motor and trans does it have? I can answer some Vista specific questions (I'm no expert but I've learned A LOT)
