Seems like motorhomes have always been built around the person of "average" height. What is average height anyway? 5'8"? I'm not too sure, but I do know that unless you can afford a newer Class A motorhome (think Alfa Gold) with plenty of headroom, then taller owners are bound to have the "bump your head blues".
Let's face it, older Class Cs are great, but when it's time to come inside after a nice day of swimming, fishing, hiking, or just 'lazing', tall folks ALWAYS have to be mindful of three things. The entry door header, the interior AC panel, and the SHOWER!..."OUCH! That HURT!!!"
Well no more lumps on the ole noggin' for me. No sir! Since my wonderful little 1976 Dodge Tioga needed the obligatory roof rebuild, I had a few "modifications" to make. Below are some snapshots of my quest to improve my overall outlook (and health!), so as to truly enjoy the RV experience without the frustration of receiving another knock on the head. Pics will be updated as I progress, so please check back soon.
Folks who are well over 6' tall take note! When it comes time to rebuild thee roof (and it WILL), maybe you could have a party and "raise the roof" instead!:)
A 10" knee-wall should add just enough height and then some!
Previous owner had it parked under an awning for about 14 years. The battle scars show, but she's none the worse for wear.
