It can be a bit cramped, especially in the bathroom. You sit on the closed toilet to shower. You can't fully stand up in there.

But it's also much shorter, at about 9-10 feet tall including the roof AC (not shown in the cutaway picture).

Due to it's more van-like appearance/size, when I registered it here in WA, the lady at the DMV here registered it as a passenger van despite me admitting it was technically a motorhome. I showed her a photo of it on my smartphone. It was about $50-70 cheaper as a passenger vehicle than as a motorhome.

I've attached a photo of it for a comparison with a 16 passenger Ford van. It's frankly about the same size.

How tall inside, do you walk, or bend over to move about.
I am sort of hoping to see some of the new Transits, by ford, to come out soon.
I know they are in production, but nothing is showing up on the ford lots yet

It has a "dropped" floor when you step inside so someone about 6 ft tall can stand up inside around the entrance, stove and galley sink. You have to crouch over to get to and from the bed and bathroom. Check the picture attached to this post for the floor plan.

Seems like an excellent floor plan for a small area. Everything is a trade off.
