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.

We have a HR EL. SRW
I was just out yesterday with gusts into the 40's. Certainly feel it, but so far, quite controllable no big problems with stability in wind.

Of course we have a bunch of weight at floor level (the 2" high floor, heaters, batteries and charger/inverter HW, etc.) for our ongoing conversion. Probably helps reduce the sail effect of an empty van.:s
