Sadly it has taken me more than once to learn to duck while leaving our trailer.

I don't think I have bonked my head on the top of the door, and I am 6'. I have a few times hit my head on the corner of the cabinets by the door, over the dinette though.

Yes, particularly the one curbside.......and I'm less than 6'. Another reason to get a 21'!!

This is the one that gets me. My sandals are always sitting in the corner by the door. Tilt head forward to see them, and *WHACK*...

For the cabinet corners, I went to Babies-R-Us and got clear plastic corner bumpers and installed them with small screws. Several times now they have saved my scalp.
