We love the Garmin but a word of caution to not trust it completely. It has led us to non-existent ferry and too low bridges. I strongly recommend the app all stays for truckers then you can also double check your route, they have offline mode as well.
We do use the lifetime map updates also before trips. Our first Garmin did not have that and going through Dallas all the freeways had changed. It made for an interesting trip! Get one with lifetime map updates it's worth the extra money.

Garmin makes a RV 760 which I believe you can input the height of your trailer. The 760 and 2798 can also take their back up camara IF it is sold as a package.

Yes you can in the Trucking or RV mode however..... Personally... I don't have a lot of trust that the clearances in the maps is 100% accurate. Especially in Canada.

Don't even think about any gps but Garmin. Been there, done that. I've used three different brands and Garmin units are miles ahead of all the rest. Wish my Lexus SC 430 had Garmin instead of the Pioneer unit. I had a Garmin Street Pilot on my first Honda Goldwing. Got stolen at a motel, but worked great.
