2015 Cardinal 3675RT

We are taking delivery on a new 3675RT next week, but there is a discrepancy on the specs for the exterior height. The 2014 brochure says 13'0" and the new online specs for the wide body (which is what we are getting) says 13'9". Waiting to hear from the dealer on exact height......... Does anyone know for sure? We DON'T want the 13'9" height! Thanks.

I just got a 3800 FL Cardinal and measured the height, it was 13'8" from front ac to ground. It is an arched roof and is a wide body. I picked it up 2 weeks ago and it is a 2015.

I am not 100% sure but I believe the legal maximum height in most states is 13 feet 6 inches. Maybe someone with more knowledge could clarify in greater detail.

Your statement appears to be correct. Check out this site: http://drivinglaws.aaa.com/laws/trailer-dimensions/

Wow, there is no way I would buy a fifth wheel that is 13'9" unless it was going to be set up on a permanent site.

Check on the Cardinal RV club site. I think the height is 13 ft 4 1/2 in. On the Cardinal site it mentioned the 13ft 9in height was a misprint.

It is against Dot regs to put trls over 13,6 on the road. You woild need an over ht permit. That is a misprint. They are plenty tall already

So I will recheck my figures that I first measured. I must be off, that just seems as lot of different depending on who you look at. I just don't want to hit a anything with the trailer. I will check it again maybe without my son on top of the trailer.

Remember it will be taller when it is up on 6 point leveling. Mine goes up 4 or 5 inches.

going to be a few inches different on every truck due to hitch height, but 13'6 is the DOT limit.
