Hi,

Don't know if you found your answer but I too am in the same boat (or van!).
My girlfriend and I are both almost 5' 10". My only concerns with the Austop is that due to the type of hinges, they have a 'sharp end' rather than some other makes that use a scissor type hinge that gives you 6" or so at the foot end!
Apart from that the Austop seems a good option.

I am hoping to go and see one at SC Conversions in Cornwall on Saturday, hopefully they will let me lie up top so I can see for myself. If my feet are jammed up at the end I shall have to look at some of the models on ebay as I can no way afford Reimo!

I will post again on Saturday with the exact results!
