Low Clearance POI - GPS Data is the one that I know of the most. I don't know the quality of it's data, though.

Not an app but the Garmin 660 GPS is what I have. You put in your height and it will route you around low clearances. They make a 770 model now. My unit is 2 years old. Bought it for 340.00 from Amazon.

When leaving the dealership with my new 5th wheel... "Oh you're under 13' you'll be fine"
About a mile or two down the road we go under a railroad track posted 13'3"...
After I got home and measured I'm 13'2" 😨

The Garmin RV GPS is what I have - like said above enter your height, width, length, weight and propane and it routes you appropriately.

Overpass heights....

I doubted this at first but heard that AllStays Camp and RV showed heights and percent grade warnings.

I examined my route home and most my concerns were put to rest but two spots were not marked, one tunnel and one short steep run. I wrote the author, got an immediate answer. Now they show up.

This is a screenshot from the RV Parks and Campgrounds app I got from the Google store. I don't think it will let you route but it has a layer for low clearances. I don't have many down my way so I'm not sure of the accuracy but it looks interesting.

If I can figure out how to get those clearances on straight Google maps it would be interesting.

Step 1: Measure your camper. Don't rely on what the manual says.

Step 2: If you see a sign that gives a clearance shorter than your measured camper height, don't go that way.
