Hate to hear it, but had to see it....if you know what I mean. Maybe your post will save someone else as it will now be on their mind if they read this topic.

Was the truck with the travel trailer behind you in the picture part of your group?

hanging chains that tell you the height

most all of us
if we have been around rigs for many years
have hit something up top side
yes
mine were a tree taking off my vent
and a Jack in the Box lighting fixture
they had a chain thing hanging down with the height marked
so
I figured the height was the same as their hanging chains
wrong
they were about 3 inches off
and I was
about 3 inches too high !!

this is a big part of why I'm afraid of a 5er. I fear being the one pulling into the gas station like that famous YouTube video shows of the rv at the bank. here is a link for those that haven't seen it.

Sorry to see that.....it is one of my fears. My new fiver is only a few months old and I am nervous about my height. The DW has had to get out a few times when gassing up to make sure we clear. I measured apx 13'6" with the 2nd AC up top. Even on I-75 a few bridge overpasses in Cincinnati are listed at 14'1' and I notice the semis in front of me have very little clearance. Even the overhead utility lines on the fedeal and state highways look low to me now. In the past I never paid them any mind.....thanks for sharing your story as that is a hard pill to swallow. Good luck with the new roof!!
