I saw one of those last month in Arizona (with California plates). The Plateau badge on a Transit confused me until I posted on this site and learned about the rental-market program. Looked nice, but I didn’t get to see inside. Wish now I’d waited for the owners. Couldn’t be many of them out there.

According to a PleasureWay official in the PW owners and wannabees group on Facebook, PW hasn't actually produced any new Canadreams units for the last two years. So those units are likely to become more scarce as they get sold off.

Welcome to the forum fated!


As this thread is about class b's with the most headroom, you are confirming what I have heard from others that the Transit chassis offers the highest interior for us tall guys.

Winnebago just came out with a new Class C showing an inside height of 6-foot 8-inches and boost many new features. Called the EKKO

Default 7 Feet height Ceiling Class B RV

I'm late to the party. Regency RV has the National Traveler Class B RV's with 7 ft high ceiling.

https://www.regencyrv.com/national-traveler/features

Interior Ceiling Height
6’2″ (Trek) / 6’2″ – 7’4″ (Tour) / 7’4″ (Explore)

Although I'm 5'11", the extra height allows additional cabinets on the top of the RV. Check it out.

I'm looking at the new Panoramic RV. The National Traveler Explore is the closest that sleeps 4 in the Class B RV with European Bunk. It's amazing if it works. No actual reviews in the wild though.

Default Best Class B for tall folks

This will be my first van. I like to camp and want to minimize the camper. I don't like the tall ones.

Would a pop up added to a Transit 150 low roof be a way to open it up for me?

Thanks for any help.

Of course. You lose the stealth aspect (or you have to leave the top down and stoop). You give up some security. The fabric boot is uninsulated in cold weather. Plus side is the canvas allows more ventilation in warm weather, you can go through just about any drive-through, and it will fit in some garages and covered parking structures.

It will cost more than the equivalent mid- or high-roof version. I’m going to WAG $10-15K for the pop-top alone. And you’ll have to get in line to have the conversion done. Upfitters are pretty busy these days.

Thanks Jon. I was thinking the Transit 150 low roof with pop top would approximate the size of a Westy or Vanagon?
