Roof Raise

Hi all,
I am preparing to begin the conversion process in the coming months. I have the intention to do a roof raise, I'm thinking about a 2' raise. However a question has been lingering, because I am curious, just how high can you raise the roof? I do not intend to be driving this bus anywhere so I'm on the fence of going as high as I possible can so I have more "breathing space" in the winter months.

Much love from Alaska

But, there are bridges and fuel station awnings that are lower.

Decide what works for you.

There is a fellow here that goes by “Ol Trunt”. I like his way of headroom.

Look at a motor home called a “Vixen “. See what they did

More than one way to gain headroom.
