At your heights if you find a high headroom model you could have up to 78" of headroom right off the bat. If you really want a roof raise don't get a Thomas. A Thomas has an extra angle on the side profile that makes for some tricky geometry when it comes to reskinning.
Easier just to start with a Bluebird or International.
We had a 40 footer and raised the roof 10". It was fantastic but was just too much bus for us. We now have a lil 5 window shorty and its already got the 78" so at 5'10" and 5'4" we have ample headroom.
Our bus isn't at all meant to be a house. Not even a full on RV. Its just something me and 4-8 friends can go places in.
