Headroom in 70's Argosy's?

Anyone happen to know what the typical vertical headroom is in an Argosy? I'm about 6' 2" tall and haven't had the opportunity yet to walk thru an Argosy and just curious how much head banging I'll be doing if that opportunity arises. I'm sure it's not tall enough and things like AC shrouds are going to get me and probably the front door but .. thought I'd ask. Thanks!

Headroom is the same as in the new 96" wide trailers.

I'm 6`4". Of course I have to duck going in and out of the entry door otherwise I have no clearance issues. The rear corner shower is a little awkward but is doable.

I'm 6.2 and have a 76 Argosy and 84 AS. No problem other than entry door. I believe I know have a permanent dent from ear to ear. Ouch!

I'm just 6'1", but if I stand really straight, my head will brush the AC shroud. Otherwise, no issues except the entry door, with which many have suffered. We had a good friend/sob camper who was 6'5". When he would come into our camper, I would tell him to watch his head. His response was always the same. "I can't. My eyes are in it."

I'm 6'2" and bang into the overhead compartments occasionally. I've also built a shelf over the front dinette/daybed that I have to watch out for. But no problems down the center aisle.
