Label recommendation

New to RVs, but have always found it useful to be reminded of driving a larger vehicle. Are there any recommendations for labels which are visible to the driver regarding height of vehicle?

Have looked for mirror image stickers that would be visible in mirror and they are hard to find.

What about just using a label maker or grease pen?

My Heights are printed on a label maker and stuck to the center of the speedometer.

I've posted my height, length and weight on the dash. Used a Brother label maker..I've used it for lots of other "reminders" in the trailer.

Don't take the height that listed on the website, at least in my case. Mine was list at 12'9" but didn't include the front air conditioner height.

I also have a Garmin 760RV that list low overpass and will help me avoid them. I also have an app called "Truck and Travel" by ALLSTAYS that shows overpass less than 14 feet.

All Federal marked highways are suppose to be 14 foot or greater but I'm sure there are some exceptions.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have decided to use my Casio labelmaker and put the height on my mirrors (will probably put it on the dash too).
