Geeeezzzzzz! 13' 8" Tall !!!

Finally got through fixing things on the new CC34RLSA that were missed during PDI and doing some improvements, and thought I'd measure the beast before first shakedown trip. The top of the B/R AC is 13' 8" when sitting on my F350 4X4. Not happy with that....will require much closer route planning than the old 40' diesel pusher MH. I guess the Trailair pin box, 4X4 truck with factory 20" wheels all add up to "overpass stress".

I keep meaning to measure mine. When I get it back, I'll definitely measure it at the storage lot (the closest thing to level around me).

Indeed it will. mine is 13'4" on a F350 2x4 with the 17" Aluminum's.
Some overpasses on I-95 in New England are 13'7". They looked lower but we still have both A/C's.

I could never be that brave. Or that confident in my measuring abilities...

Had mine measured in Goshen, when LIppert reps didn't believe I was 13'-4" sitting level. Proved them wrong.

How level is your CC when hooked up to tow?

My 34RLSA measures just over 13' at the highest point when hooked up to tow and the trailer rides a little nose high. But we don't have the BR AC.

How much height does the BR AC add?

Op just for your info dot restricts heights to 13'6", anything above is going to need oversize load permits. (Some states will allow 14-14'6" on interstates w/o an escort).

Honestly I doubt you will ever be checked by dot, but just thought id give you a heads up. Thats frustrating im sure!

Thanks Miller, but here in TX it's over 14' for a permit load.....still doesn't make me feel better though!

Others:
The B/R AC adds around 8-9" height.

Height was measured on concrete bus barn floor, and 4' level on kitchen floor showed 1/4" high on forward end. I figure that would equate to about an inch high at pin.

Also, I forgot to mention that I opted for the 7K axles and LRG tires...that might have a tiny effect on height....
