Med vs High Roof

I've been following the threads for a while now, but can't seem to figure out which would be a better buy for my wife and I - going with the medium roof or the high roof.

Here's what we'll be doing:

Our plan is to travel through both North and South America over the course of several years. We'll be using the van as an RV conversion and as a mobile office. We are AVID outdoors enthusiasts and considered the Sprinter 4x4 until we were told by many owners that they never had use for the 4x4 model.

I'm 5'10... maybe 5'11 on a good day.

I'd like to be able to use this as a mobile office when we aren't traveling - a place to do work (computer) and park at the beach to just chill. The space sounds inviting, but am worried that I'm limiting myself interns of stability with the higher roof.

Medium roof fits under just about every drive thru I've been to. High roofs most likely will not.
That's what matters to me.

Had my mobility up fitters give me a maximum height of my HR Wagon, so I wouldn't have any problems. On a flat surface, height is 8'11".

Was wondering if they had mis-measured and not taken into account the curve in the roof. So I had neighbor put a laser level on the middle of the roof. Just as I suspected, they were wrong >:D , or it's just that my garage floor isn't completely level. :) We came out at an even 9'

So I'm going to feel safe going under anything higher than 9' 2". ;)
