    Raise the Roof or Not... That is the question

    Hi all, So I have a question about a decision I am dealing with. We had a FWC popup prior to our current M1010 ambulance. Because of the popup, we had no problem standing in the old rig. The M1010 box is only 65" tall and we are both 69" tall, so we cannot stand fully upright to cook, wash...
