Default any RV-4s in East TN?

Greetings,

I'm shopping for an RV-4 (or -3B), and I'd like to try one on to see if I have enough headroom. I'm 6'-1", but it's all torso (neck really). I remember sitting in the back of an RV-4 once just to see if I fit, and it was tight as I recall. The front seat should have more space, but I don't remember every trying it.

I've built a couple RV-8s which were no problem, and I also finished an RV-3B (retrofit wings). For the RV-3B, I used a tip-over and custom canopy to add a couple inches of headroom. As I recall, the stock slider was tight.

Thanks,
Rusty
