Height on 5Th wheel

So looking at this monster I bought I started wondering about the height on it.
So mine is like 13.17' tall is there a problem with height much ?

Only if you go under something shorter than your rig

My 340RK is 13ft 2inches to the Top of the Front Air Conditioner.. My Dealer told me to never go under Bridges that are less that 13 ft 6 inches.. No Problems in the last 4 years.

My Arctic Wolf 315TBH8 is the same... My dealer assured me "your under 13' you'll be fine" there is a 13'3" bridge a mile down the road on my way home. 😱

yes! ours is 13'6" to 13'7". you have to measure when hooked up. we have not yet encountered a road obstacle that prevented us from going under it, though there was one that was close and we took it slow and right down the middle of the road (it was an arched tunnel). however, we are more concerned about tree branches once you get off the road and into a campsite or park. also trees in places like Walmart parking lots. you just have to look for them and avoid them. there is danger in those trees.

Broke my ladder off last year on a low tree limb backing into a tight camp spot. luckily it didn't damage roof or wall just snapped to tubing on the ladder.

One of our main East-West roads over the river has a low bridge.

Safe and happy travels.

If that sign says 13' 11" then most of the ones I see on 35 north/south are 14'. Haven't really thought about height between here and KCI but may start looking up again just to make sure.

What does that bridge look like to be a full 1' 4" shorter when going straight? That's gotta be a heck of an obstruction.

This is something that I'm going to have to start keeping an eye out when we pick up the new fiver. With the Flagstaff, as long as the first number wasn't an 11' or less, we never paid much attention.
