How is the head room in the eagle cap 1165 or 1200?  It is listed as 76 inches, but why is it lower than the smaller eagle caps?  I am 6'5", is it too low?

Those models have the floor start above the bed rails of the truck rather than above the wheel wells of the other models. Although it does allow for more floor space it makes the overall camper taller too. I'm over 6' and fit in these models without my head touching, but I'm not sure at your height if you would clear the air conditioning shroud inside.

The height is listed at 76 inches, so it's taller than that in the center, and it only drops down at the nose shroud, or is it that tall before the AC, and then it drops down further?

So is it above 76 inches (the listed height) until the nose cap, and then it drops down to that, or is is 76 inches where it's flat, and then it drops down further at the nose cap?

Yeah, but what is the height when it is the same?  Is it 76 inches, or is 76 inches the lowest it gets, when it goes down?
