    I'm in a midroof and it's just at 11' tall and I can stand full height with shoes and I'm 6'3". Heating is no problem with an espar. Most trailers you see are going to be up around 11 anyway. While flats might get shorter it's rare, and you're probably going to be avoiding any roads with a 9' bridge as a matter of safety regardless of clearance. And fuel mileage? What's that?

    With the KW W900 and the flat top studio sleeper, a person can stand up in it. I am 6' 2" and I can stand up in it.

    What's the clearance on the W9 flat tops? They seem to stick up a bit further than the Pete flat tops. I'm guessing 10'8" at least if they've got that much interior height.
     
    Feedman and Lepton1 Thank this.

    Better aero, lower weight, more clearance for tight areas. Shorter overall length. Lots of reasons.
     
    misterG and RollinThunderVet Thank this.

    Big motor, heavy frame. Put a small flat top on it and you got a truck that'll weight less, out work and out live that cookie cutter p.o.s!

    Less frame length means less weight.
