Need help estimating ceiling height

Can anyone clue me in on the interior height of this Bluebird? (Standard or extended) I reached out to him but he hasn't gotten back to me. It's easy to tell on Thomas's but I don't know how to distinguish on a Bluebird. Thanks.

I have not figured out how to tell by looking at passanger window and drivers window. I can tell you that it looks just like my A3RE and mine was 74" before I raised my roof.

I look at the relationship between the top of the driver's window, or the door, to the height for the windows of the bus body - if the body windows are higher, the bus has high ceilings, if the height is the same, it has a normal ceiling - in some buses the body windows are lower than the door or driver's window - I assume those buses were built for gnomes - lol

Huh, I was about to say that isn't true for my bus (which is 6'7" down the center) but I checked and indeed the top of the side windows is a good 4" higher than the top of the driver window. It's weird the things you do and do not notice about your own bus.

So, this is high

This is the window orientation of a high vs. low ceiling in a bluebird?

The 05 Thomas has a 77" headroom, my 99 Genesis with 1-1/2" rigid insuation and a vapor barrier and 5/16" flooring leaves me with 76"

you'll notice that the tops of the windows in the body of the bus are higher than the driver's window
