Subject: Am I too tall?

I am in the very early stages of looking for an Rv. I like the older Bluebirds a lot and feel the quality and construction ( from what I have seen on this site ) justifies the higher cost. My first question, and this may rule out a Wanderlodge alltogether, is- How much interior height is there in the coach. I am 6' 3 1/2" tall and am concerned about headroom. I realize this may vary some from model to model or perhaps what options are installed ( a roof top AC that might hang down inside?), but any general answers to this question would be much appreciated.

You don't have a problem. You should fit in just about any model bird with a smidge of room left over.

You will get more headroom in the wide body models as the factory increased the headroom by several inches.
If you really want headroom, go to the 2004 models and newer as again, headroom was bumped up another couple of inches.

I sold my '86 PT38 because of a bent back and canted neck. I visited every Chiropractic office in every major city on our last trip. As much as I loved the old girl, she had to go. As I was not going to plunk down several hundred grand for a used "new" 2004 or newer coach, we now have another brand coach.

I write this with authority as I stand in bare feet a little over 6'7" +..

Blair in Oregon...email me if you have more questions.

I'm 6'3" and love my 1981 Wanderlodge. I duck on occasion, its a habit.

On my coach which is a front control (FC, non-pusher), I can just touch the bottom of the AC units if I try to stand as tall as possible; I'm 6' early in the day. The air conditioners do hang say 2-1/2 to 3 inches.

Pushers and the 1979 XV model are taller in the interrior.

Regards, Don
