I am 5,11" with a Warwick XL. just enough room. Seat is more forward than I would like but compromise cos we like the layout. Had it three years and have done some long journeys with no problems. Everyone,s different so drive one first. Steve.

Just about OK

Post by HowieT on Fri Jul 21, 2017 5:07 pm

I agree - I'm the same height and changed the configuration many times until it was OK. I have the seat at max height and one notch short of maximum rearward position in order to get some recline into the setup. The downside of maximum seat height is reduced vision with the sun visors down - the excellent built-in thermal cab screens stop the sunvisor travel and the plastic trim for the screens also robs some indscreen area. Personally, I would have sacrificed an inch or two of the toilet area for a better overall driving  position. Of greater concern is the pathetic basin in the shower room - Danny Devito would struggle to use it let alone anyone of average height.

I first went to buy a WarrickXL as the layout is good. But found out could not getting the driving position right 6' 1"" tall. So in the end went for the KemertonXL. Which I like now picked the van up in December last year now done 4,500 miles in it so it was the best choice for me. But do agree if there was 1 yo 2 inches off the toilet/ shower room it would be great van.

6' 1" tall and even with the elevated seat at its lowest point I have difficulty with reduced vision, eg. seeing if the traffic lights have changed from red to green. Same problem with the handbrake, even though I do have a longish arm I still need to lean well down to my right to maneuver the handbrake up or down. On a steep hill this can be a tricky problem when I stoop down to release the handbrake to drive off.

Suggest you take one for a drive, I am 5 11 but have long legs, it was tolerable, but like Campbell took a kemerton xl for a test and it was far better, an extra inch or two changed it from tolerable to comfortable.
