Its going to be a through the roof entry, should have at least 18 maybe 20 inch wide opening.

I'd have to use a step ladder to get into that one Tony.
Climbing into the Riley is challenging enough ....... and it's
only a 20" step over. I've gotta grab my pant leg to get my foot
in as it is.
Been thinking about taking some classes at the Sr. Canter to limber
up the old bones before committing to driving.

Yoga is good for flexability.
The roof line will be at about 22 inches.

How you working that Tony???? I put your side view into CAD and scaled it to the 3" web of the frame
and from the bottom of the frame to the top of the roof at the 'A' pillar I get 34". Add a conservative 4"
for ground clearance and that puts the roof line at about 38" from the ground.
What am I missing????

I am measuring from the top of the frame rail. 32 to 33 total height.

Idea for vehicle entry problem.

Ok, then I guess the 22 inches you posted should have been 32"????
Don't mean to drag this out Tony, just trying to envision how you're going
to get into it.
I think Brian was thinking the same as me, that is, were you thinking doors?
Without doors, again, I guess my scale in CAD wasn't that far off,
32-33 inches plus 3 more for the frame, add in a few more for ground clearance,
and that puts the topper over three feet off the ground. That's gonna be a
pretty good stretch for anyone. You're gonna have to take a running leap
to get in there, something like Roy Rogers used to do when mounting Trigger.
But the body work should be quite interesting to follow along on. Please
keep us updated on some of your metal forming techniques. I'm sure there
are a lot of guys that are interested in learning that phase of a build.

Scott, that was my second option. I may hinge the body at the grill shell and lift the body from the cab foreward.

Dennis, the overall height from ground to roof top will be approx.34 inches. I am leaving the back of the cab 0pen for easier ingress and egress.

Ah ha......now that clears the water. Any way you look at it, its
gonna be kind of a bear to slip into.
Now I want to see how Brian is going to shoehorn his butt into
a belle tanker. You two should put on a good show during
driver changes at Tieton.
