The Roadtrek Chevvies, 190PC and 210PC are 8 ft 9 inches.

Here's a site you can go to that has good info. You have to "drill down" on each vehicle to get the specs.
https://www.rvusa.com/rv-guide/specs-by-type-class-b-t9
for example:
o Type: Class B
o Make: Roadtrek
 190-Popular
 2019
will return all the specs including dimensions
Hope this helps.

Welcome to the forum Billiam!


Your choices will be very limited indeed. Probably only Chevy class "b"s as already indicated that have inset air conditioners.

You will also be able to use the Drive Though at Mcdonald's for coffee and a whatever.

I use McDonalds to relieve myself. I always go inside.

You could have a low roof van with a pop-up top (ie. Sportsmobille and a few others).

Our garage door has exactly nine feet of clearance. I spent a lot of time trying to determine if any B except a Roadtrek Chevy based 190 or 210 would fit in it. The answer was NO. Now, there may very well be some Bs made in the 80s and 90s that would fit but for rigs built in the last fifteen years or so, Roadtrek 210 and 190 seem to be it.

We own a 210P and love it. We owned a 1996 RT 190P on a Dodge when we built the house and the nine foot garage.

We have a '95 Roadtrek 190 Popular on a Dodge chassis that measures 8' 7" to the top of the cover over the roof fan. I also carry a stick that I can place on the driver's side mirror mount that reaches up to 8' 9" so i can check for clearance. (Poor man's sonar.)

Maybe the Pleasure Way Tofino? But you loose bathroom and shower plus standing height due to it being a pop-up.

Thanks for the photo. It sure looks like it could cancel me height issue. But it is more than 10 years old, I’m guessing. Is it easy to maintain?

Thanks. I have looked at the Tofino. I’d like some better choices.

Because of the front wheel drive, and thus lower floor, high roof Promasters are 100” stock. This would leave ~9” for roof paraphernalia.

I was under the impression that high roof Promasters were about 100" tall (or 101" using the Sportsmobile van dimension comparison page).

However the Ram 2019 website and brochure now list the height at 105.9"
https://www.ramtrucks.com/ram-promaster.html

Any idea why the difference? Did they really change that much for 2019? Or are they now including the antenna and other protrusions?

I have had only minor issues with mine. I had to replace the windshield wiper linkage bushings and the gas tank filler tube grommet (each job about 1 hour or less). Replaced the fuel pump and magneto on the onan generator. About 140k miles on the van and 150 hours on the generator. I have seen posts on this and other forums by folks with units up to 10 years older than mine. I am 80 years old so it will probably outlast me.

I couldn’t get that page to load, but as far as I know, there is no difference whatsoever in the body, and I can’t imagine them raising the suspension 5”. Curious.
