Greetings all.

Hope you can help. My wife and I are experienced tent campers, and are just starting in the van life. One thing that impacts what we do next, in terms of a van, is my height. I'm 6'7" Yes, the tall slender type. Good looking? Hmmm, my wife thinks so. Anyway. I'd be curious to learn from those of you with VanLife experience who are tall or have tall partners. What have you done in terms of sleeping? Custom internal designs? What vans work better than others? What hard hats have you used?

Thanks in advance

James

A few options I've seen are the tall roof vans like the Dodge Sprinter or Mercedes work trucks. Additionally pop up roofs. Finally I've seen people DIY a normal cargo van like a Ford E150 chop the roof off and jerry rig their own tall roof lol :P

Neither of us are tall, but we have met several very tall van people. They seem to prefer either customizing a van to their height or getting a high-top: https://www.reddit.com/r/vandwellers/co ... ters_tall/

We're currently customizing and fully repairing our van with a mechanic, if you don't have the time or energy to do it yourself - maybe find a fierce mechanic? I suppose it also depends where you're based/country. No tall people living in vans we've met have ever needed hard hats, but even I have hit my head a few times in our T4. Grin.
