Given how long it took them to get to this point with the Approach, I’d be amazed if they made any major changes like those required to get under 8ft. We were hoping our EOS would make it under as well, but having seen it now, I’m glad they went with higher walls and less canvass than the Approach. Provides a better feel inside and more room for other features and is still usable at night when closed on a really cold night. I still think having a slightly lowered roof is worth it vs s 10ft hardtop just for less resistance towing, lower center of gravity, and better fit on tight trails, even if it’s still over 8ft. Trade off is worth it.
