I suppose it depends on your "size" as well. I am 6'0 as well and find the seating position to be much better than my 2014 Honda Odyssey, BMWs and Porsches we have had over a long distance. We make some trips that are 6-10 hours in the seat and it is not a problem in the PM for me. With regards to the left armrest; I agree it is a bit awkward. It does appear that you could add an armrest to the seat itself (I think I have seen that option in some of my searches). The complaint I have is more in regards to the key location. My right now is less than 1/2 inch away from it usually. If I ever crash, there is no doubt the key is going to break off in the ignition. I have thought about remote start, but right now banking on the no crash theory.

lol; yes, I ALWAYS like to lean towards the "no crash theory".
And, if you do crash in a Promaster Class B, chances are a broken key may be not be your biggest problem.

BTW you over 6' fellows. I did read lately... somewhere... that the new Promasters will have a tilt steering wheel.

Hopefully it is true.

Suggest you get a valet key or plain metal key and cut it down so that it sticks out as little as possible, keeping in mind that you do need to get it out of the switch. Round off any sharp bits. If we could bank on no crash theory we wouldn't bother with air bags and seat belts.

I heard this as well from the Hymer dealer that soon the vans they use will have new tilt wheels.
