Trip from PA to Smokey Mountains

We're planning a trip through the Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, and on to the Smokey Mountains next June. What are the roads and tunnels like? Will we have problems encountering the tunnels in our 11'3" high Sunseeker?
Also any good suggestions for campgrounds?

We were just there in September. Road surfaces are decent but roads are windy. There is a tunnel somewhere on Skyline Drive and I found conflicting info on it's height. Some sources said 12', but I think I read 12'4" elsewhere. Its a great area and a great drive. We set up our trailer at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in Greenwood VA, and then drove parts of both the Blue Ridge and Skyline in the truck.

We would go back to Misty Mountain. Had an issue with one of the 50A breakers, but even at 7pm on Friday night someone came out, he didn't understand much about the Progressive EMS and why it was cutting the power. Said he would be out in the AM and change the breakers, wasn't hot so it just ran off the 30A for the night. Next day we got back to the trailer it was plugged back into 50A and line voltage was good. Sites are a bit cramped, but we were out and about and didn't spent much time in the campground so it was pretty much a non issue.
