Playdirt, I'm 6'3 and drive a 34' Seabreeze. I too was concerned about leg room,but is no problem, I just sit up straight. Have put in long shifts behind the wheel, with nothing locking up. I have considered looking into whether a modification could be made to the mounting plate. If you find the rig you like, go for it. Stop often and stretch.

playdirt,

I too am five feet seventeen inches tall and the seat behind the steeringwheel of our Suncruiser is one of the most comfortable places for me to be! I have already driven 5 hours straight and felt great when we reached our destination. I can stretch out both legs almost straight with the seat in the rearmost position. My wife agrees, the seats Winnebago makes are really great.

Merry Christmas to all!!

I am 6'5" and have the Allegro Bay 37DB by Tiffin. It has enough room. Comfortable to drive.

For 2006 Winnebago Industries' Adventurer line has raised the roof for folks just like yourself. Take a walk in one and you'll see what I mean.

All the Alfa motorhomes have 7'6" ceilings and 6'2" tall slides. The drivers seat just does go forward enough for me to be comfortable in my Gold and I am 6' even, it goes back a long way and is power adjustable, couple that with tilt and telescopeing steering wheel and I am sure you could find a more than comfortable position.

Check out the "Founder's Edition" which is a 36' diesel pusher that should meet your needs and is not super expensive.

Seating is important, but as important is to get a MH that has a full size 60 X 80 queen mattress. I am 6'7" and have difficulty getting comfortable on a "short" queen mattress. My criteria for buying has and will be headroom, driving position and mattress. Then I look at everything else. Like was said, Winnebago is very good as long as it's at least 35' long and my current Holiday Rambler 38 is very good with higher ceilings too.
