Default Interior heights

Since I'm 6'8" (80in) tall, interior height is pretty important. I've looked through most of the files, only found a height for the BMC. Asked on Facebook and got SP height, both of which are 78.5in
Can folks measure a floor to ceiling height for me? Not worried about AC units, I can duck.
Looking for PT, 80s FC, 88 and up wide body PT.

Here's what I have so far.
83 FC. 75.5
89 WB PT40. 79
SP. 78.5
BMC. 78.5
93 WB. 79
95. WB. 78
M380. 79 center, 81.5 beside AC duct

Still looking for a narrow body PT measurement.


Thanks for all the measurements!
Dennis

Just measured our 1983 FC and from the very middle or the apex, standing on the bare floor, it measures 75.5 inches from floor to ceiling. Sorry.

It kind of depends on where you measure but the WB is about 79, but the AC is ducted so no ducking for that. There are a couple of pocket doors that will cause you to duck, in many of them with the walk thru baths. I would imagine that anyone your height would need to be a lot more aware of where your walking.

O I'm very aware of bumping my head, matter of fact, I hit my head very little.

Thanks for the measurement!

Thanks, can I get height without AC also?

Edit, whoops, I got it now, AC is ducted, so that is the height.

6' 6" is the height in the center of the coach without the AC, The AC is a ducted system so the air intake only really holds the filter,

Default M380 interior heights

Not one of your “looking” coaches, but posted for others...

M380 -

The M380 has a ceiling mounted 24” wide decorative concealed A/C duct that runs down the middle of the coach. There are three wood decorations (one of them is over the bed) that the drop the measurement by 1/2”. Floor to the lowest point of those decorations is 78-1/2”. The rest of the duct without decorations measures 79” floor to the duct ceiling upholstery. Except for the decorations, all of the duct and the ceiling is padded. On either side of the ducting, there is more space to the real ceiling & the measurement starts out at 81-1/2” slowly decreasing toward the sides. There are two small “duck-your-head” tracks for the sliders that measure 78 & 75-1/2” for the kitchen-bath and bath-bedroom doors, respectively. I have coach-wide engineered wood flooring that if removed, might add 1/2” to each of the above height measurements. The shower has 78” of height tapering to less as you get near the side wall & there’s a small light fixture to hit your head on. IF the decorative center duct could be removed, that’d be the ticket since the center-of-coach w/o duct measurement would likely be 82” to 83”.

Have noticed that when sitting next to any of the current generation big stick & plastic coaches, my bird is noticeably less tall.

I have to say at 6'11" the worst part when I had the 85 PT36 was the roof a/c and the shower. I got bit a couple times by the a/c mostly when working on something it coach. Good luck with your search.
