I believe it is the Rand McNally RV series that has that feature. I would look at ours but it is several hours away.

The Rand McNally is the only GPS that will alert you and detour you around tunnels with propane restrictions.

I always prefer to buy software rather than hardware bound devices. I figure I have an iPhone which is faster than any of the purpose built one.

Copilot has some nice avoidance features such as hazmat and RV vehicle. I just downloaded the free version and it appears you can set up the size of your RV and define propane as one of the hazmats to prevent routing through low bridges and tunnels that forbid propane.

It's a little more granular than just saying 'avoid tunnels' and works offline so you don't need a data connection.
