    Get a step ladder and a tape to be absolutely sure.
    I wouldn't rely on what others say.

    Which company converted it?

    I am sure if you did a internet search with 1995 talbot express+ converters name something would come up.

    But I agree with PaulyP - measure it. On a 20 year old van lots could have changed over the years.

    Hello and :welc:

    My first motorhome didn't have a height written anywhere so we placed a broom on the roof, sticking out horizontally, then tape measure to the ground from that. Sounds more complicated than it was, took less than 10 minutes.

    I agree with all of the above just after saying "Welcome!"
    It has proved very useful in the past to have the height, width and length printed out. I have them stuck at the top of my window.
    Why the length? Well some parking places have limited size parking (Brit Stops for example).
