Any helpers?
I'm 6'5" and sit in my friends RV-12 with nothing more than a lawn chair pad under my butt, and a moving blanket folded 4x thick taped to the back rest. I've done 2.5 to 3 hours, I'm 61 and still pretty comfortable. Bladder breaks every 2 to 2.5 hours and a walk around and refuel make things more manageable. Don't know if I'd want to do three 2.5 hr stints in an RV-12 on a long spring or early fall day, though. Might cover some ground, but at that point, I'd be considering flying commercial instead.

My friend is about 6í2Ē and finds that pulling out the foam wedge under the seat cushion gives sufficient clearance to the canopy. Might try that first.
