One million bucks

That's how much I've now earned after getting a dollar for every time I've hit my head on the TV and overhead bins.

I'm going to convey that to my husband. It's his least favorite aspect of life in the T1N and I think it wouldn't be much better in an NCV3, but he is not so sure. He's a bit under 6'2".

Welcome to my world. Seems like I hit my freakin' head on everything lately; I just don't see it. But here's the word of warning:

My opthamologist told me that a narrowing of your field of vision is one of the symptoms of glaucoma.

LOL! no kidding right! I'm considering taking it out completely since we NEVER watch that TV. If you are in 2nd row you will get a neck cramp trying to watch it anyway! Maybe I can replace it with a nice 14" that doesn't extend below the ceiling height.

We recently decided to upsize slightly to a Winnebago / Itaska Navion. Even though there's no place to bump my head up front in the new one, I still reflexively "duck and cower" every time I step into the cab based on a year and 16,700 miles of repeatedly hitting my head in the Interstate. It had gotten so bad our son mailed me some special foam he thought I could mount to protect myself. If you can picture me stepping into the cab from the aisle, I look like a punch drunk fighter trying to avoid a phantom punch.

I've taken to wearing baseball caps. The reduced overhead vision increases the number of times I bump my head but at least I'm not drawing blood.

I solved my problem by installing a round piece of rubber, like the ones that go around pipes and put it along the whole bottom edge of the TV. Interestingly, for whatever reason, now I dont hit the rubber
